I can't beleive this old chesnut is ongoing.

Not just ongoing, but it seems that Christian Conservatives seem to be gaining the upper hand in many areas

Can anyone imagine this kind of argument occuring in Manchester?

I feel like I'm in a time warp here," said Topeka attorney Pedro Irigonegaray who has agreed to defend evolution as valid science. "To debate evolution is similar to debating whether the Earth is round. It is an absurd proposition."


.......er what he said
Regardless of what they decide i know what i'll be teaching my kids

All ready thinking about it. This place is so mentally backwards it's untrue.

Might want to head more north east - go due east from where you are and you'll wind up in a real desert, not just a cultural one.
