Thanks for posting this and thank god they are not teaching creationism in schools.
Glad that his victory has been won if only in the UK for the time being, to get religion out of schools is a great thing.
I wish this had passed anywhere in north America as I would have been happier, but a battle one is a battle one.
Anything that takes any power away from religion is a good thing.
Thanks for sharing and good too see ya again.
ETA: evolution is not intelligent, it is simply survival of the best adapted. Has nothing to do with intelligence, generally it has to do with the
most well adapted to the environment.
I always describe evolution by a forest. If the forest consisted of trees that were exactly 10' tall and every tree was that exact height, and all of
a sudden a genetic mutation happened and one of the trees became 11' tall, it would collect more sunlight and would have more offspring. As it has
more offspring more trees would come up at 11' and that would become the new standard, so rather than 10' trees they would all eventually become 11'
The same thing would happen if one of the tree had a genetic mutation that made it grow to 12' the cycle would continue.
That is a very simple example of evolution by natural selection.
I can't remember where I heard that.
It always stuck with me though.
