I'll come, and I'll bring a banana bread. My dad used to make those when hurricanes were coming ashore In Florida.

Go to: Should creationism be taught in British classrooms?

MarkSmith's Avatar Jump to comment 60 by MarkSmith

With two children in school in the American South, it is my opinion that science is severely undertaught, teachers are afraid to mention evolution because the more they do, the more complaints the school gets from angry, ignorant parents.

Kids don't get enough science as it is, so what topic would you suggest skipping in order to cover this one?

Finally, I've noticed that kids also have little understanding of the power of the scientific method.

If you want to take any precious moments away from teaching my kids science, then rather than wasting it on debunking one shitbird myth, how about investing that time in getting kids excited about science in general? Show them some of the fantastic, life-saving, world-changing discoveries that have resulted from understanding evolution.

In exchange for this time spent summarizing what science has achieved, I'll be happy to concede the exactly zero minutes it will take to summarize all of the great "faith-based" scientific advances.

Why is the reporter in this interview wearing a headscarf?

And doesn't the U.K. have some things written down about the value of human rights and freedom of inquiry?

I suppose what I'm really asking is: Why isn't that madman laughed off of the stage?
