            The title and opening sentences of this bill are a clever
    disguise, but it soon becomes obvious that it's the crudest sort of
    anti-evolution stuff without even the merit (such as it might be) of any
    positive argument for something like "creation science." It seems to me
    that instead of trying to amend it, it would be better to kill it as
    quickly as possible.
