Bertvan: I applaud your belief in supporting the rights of the majority. However
most of the people you criticize so bitterly as being against science are not
YEC's. Neither Steve Jones nor I are YEC's, and I' m not even religious.

If it walks like a duck...

Bertvan: I don't know the exact wording of the resolution of the Kansas school board.
Maybe it just says "Darwinism"--"random mutation and natural selection as an
explanation of macro evolution"--can't be taught in the schools as
established fact.

You appear to be confused about the fact of evolution versus the theory of evolution.

I would support such a resolution, and I consider myself a staunch supporter of science.

I applaud your stance against YEC then.
