Go to: Why is evolution more accepted in Mexico than in the USA?

mgjinich's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by mgjinich

I, being also a Mexican, think that Mexico is a much more agnostic country than the USA. All this thanks to Benito Juarez who kept "el clero" in the closet for a long time. Mexican Catholics are more like cultural Catholics, who go to church because that is what people do on Sundays, but they are not real fanatics. Although there are groups, like the religious Jews or the Legionarios de Cristo, who tear the Biology text books apart so kids don't learn about evolution. Yes, they do.

A mutation can be understood as a replacement of a base (A for T or whatever), the duplication of a base, the duplication of a whole section of bases, a duplication of a whole chromosome, or any combination of any of the above.

As easy as that!!!!!

There is this story about the President of a very well known university who went to the Biology Department to complain because they were spending a very big share of the budget in microscopes, equipment, animals, etc.

He said: "You should be like the Mathematicians - they only need pencils, paper and garbage cans!!!!!!!".

"Or even better, the Philosophers - they only need pencils and paper!!!".
