Agree with all above who have said this is getting to be a worn out subject, but this is a new year and:

New year brings new attacks on evolution in schools

Legislative actions in New Hampshire and Indiana beset widely accepted theory

The new year is bringing new controversy over teaching evolution in public schools, with two bills in New Hampshire seeking to require teachers to teach the theory more as philosophy than science.

Meanwhile, an Indiana state senator has introduced a bill that would allow school boards to require the teaching of creationism.

I REFUSE to comment on these bills.

For background for those still awake to the subject, MSNBC provides some useful(?) information at:

7 Theories on the Origin of Life

or:

The Top 10 Intelligent Designs (or Creation Myths)

You can read about the legislation at the first link if you like.

The other two links are - maybe - actually interesting. (They're both slide shows, but not as boring as some of that ilk.)
