Hi, this is Deana, your Michigan correspondant, writing with a report from the field. Despite all the supporting evidence, it turns out, according to this Detroit News editorial, that the theory of evolution is “an antiquated, unproven teaching theory”. Oh, I see. It also says that evolution “fails (the) test” of being a “genuine scientific theor(y)”. Ah. Unlike intelligent design, which “can and has been proved scientifically.” I’m learning so much here in Michigan!
It is so, so, so awful. I’ll finish this despairing rant with another quote, “Some Michigan educators have already vowed to fight intelligent design. One Grand Rapids Community College biology professor called it “embarrassing.” But the theory that we “evolved” from apes isn’t?”
