Go to: Catholic bishops warn Obama they'll fight on abortion: Statement to focus on 'opposing evil'

There is an interesting article in the November 2008 Scientific American about Francisco J Ayala who points points out that one out of five pregnancies end in spontaneous miscarriage and therefore God is the greatest abortionist of all.

Go to: What Genes Remember

cal_mertes's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by cal_mertes

There was a program on PBS - Nova a year or two back covering much the same subject and a couple of different ways in which the expression of genes is modified by other persistent molecules surrounding the genes.

Go to: CEAI Action Alert for Science Teachers

Instead, I think we should demand that all fundical s(fundamentalists and evangelicals) schools be required to teach the controversy. Their science books should have to include disclaimers that the contents are not supported by scientific evidence where appropriate.

Further history courses should include notices that the events of the gospels are not supported by the historical record and many events claimed to have occured are missing which is strong evidence that the events never happened.

Further demand their congregations receive information on biology including evolution from qualified teachers.
