do people still believe in evolution???

Georgia's school superintendent Thursday dropped plans to remove the word "evolution" from the state's high school science curriculum. "I will recommend to the teacher teams that the word 'evolution' be put back in the curriculum," Kathy Cox said in a statement. Cox said she originally wanted to replace "evolution" with the phrase "biological changes over time" to avoid controversy. Along with the return of "evolution," the science textbooks will henceforth employ the term "Georgia" to refer to any intellectually slovenly upright biped vertebrate that has yet to develop a central cortex capable of even slightly nuanced non-whiny reactionary idiocy emerging from a direct reaction to a handful of heavily twitching Bible-licking parents with incredibly awful hair who think the Bible is all exactly super literal keen and hence allows them to dismiss roughly ten million proofs of evolutionary being, like, oh, say craters, and plate tectonics, and the sky, and ice ages, and physics and ancient Egyptians and the human coccyx and, well, the goddamn Bible itself, you sad simpering ninnies. In place of the word "evolution" in the textbooks, the board wanted "some sort of convoluted whacky icky stuff about blood and bones and icky sex that God clearly does now want us to know anything about because if he did he would not have made the great mystery of big boobies."

Well, Georgia can soon join the proud ranks of California (ebonics) and Kansas (creationism)as national educational embarrassments. [:p]

Nope. But I am a firm believer in separation of church and state. Creationism is a belief, not a science. I have no problem with it being taught as part of religious education. It has no business being in a science classroom.

I don't.

How could we possibly come from a single cell?

Only an Intelligent Creator could have made us, and that is God.
