Now I know !!

Watch these : 1 , 2 read this.
How stupid can people become.
This and similar stuff is what is getting taught in USA in schools it seems !!
I used to think that the debates in Scott Adam's blog about intelligent design vs evolution was all for fun and the people concerned knew that.
Never in my wildest dreams did I really believe that there would be 'perfectly sane people' with a scientific bent of mind believing in wholescale con job like this.

I haven't yet checked out the things you refer to, but I will when I get a chance. I assume it's about teaching evolution vs. intelligent design.
This goes into the "Two Americas" and "Red-Blue divide" section. Yes, teaching evolution has run into organized resistance, at least to the extent of needing to 'balance' it with teaching 'alternate theories'. The level of support for this idea depends on which part of America you look at.

What I find surprising is that the only reason for the opposition seems to be 'cos it is against the religious scriptures.
And so half ass attempts are being made to create alternatives which preserve the relevance of god in humans coming into being.

It is sad indeed ...

Yes, but there is this huge mid-America mainstream sentiment that the 'liberals' are having their way with the direction America is heading, where there is no place for traditional American religious beliefs. This has become sort of a rally cry for conservative (not in the fiscal sense any more) Americans to attack perceived 'liberal establishments', and evolution is one such.
