← UPDATED: Muslim medical students boycotting lectures on evolution... because it 'clashes with the Koran'

If that's true, then it's only an indication of the presence of religious extremists. I've met very many Muslim colleagues who wouldn't even think of knocking down Darwin on religious grounds. Interestingly, I clearly remember the world in which it was unusual for any religious adherent to reject Darwin (or any other scientific concept) with a possible exception of some backwards areas of the USA. Since the advent of the Internet (which was and still is American-dominated) the rejection of science is on the rise and rise.
