US school battle over evolution

Kansas evidently want to return the the 1800's in its science curriculum. Since the Roman Catholic Church does not deny the Darwin's theories are wrong, I do not see what all the fuss is about. Teaching that the world was actually created in seven days -- now that would be madness. Check out other possible 'warning lables' that could be placed in textbooks.

Charles Darwin
Darwinian theory would be challenged with 'alternative explanations'
The Kansas state school board has begun four days of hearings into how children in state schools are taught about the origins of life.

Religious conservatives are pressing for a change to state guidelines that would play down Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.

They argue that the teaching of evolution shows a bias against religion."
