Re: Oklahoma...
I can't see how this isn't about religion.

I remember when I was taking a class on human evolution in college. The professor made an announcement on the first day explaining how she knew some people felt the topic was controversial and that they might not believe that humans evolved. She said that they didn't expect you to believe it, but they did expect you to be able to explain the scientific position on human evolution.

Just because you don't want to accept the scientific explanation doesn't mean that you shouldn't have to learn what that explanation is. These laws don't help with anything at all.

Re: Oklahoma...

I went to a private high school in Georgia. We were required to take courses in Old Testament history and New Testament history to graduate. I don't remember anyone belly-aching about the classes, including the Jewish students. The 9th grade biology course was conventional in every respect including teaching the theory of evolution and discussion of abiogenesis. Neither being in the deep South nor being religious requires this crap.

This is about a particular bunch of religious folk.

What I meant was that you wouldn't pass this law without being influenced by religion, not that being influenced by religion would make you pass this law.

And I went to Catholic schools. We too had both religion and conventional biology classes.

Re: Moderm Humans
I use that "name" because He is the God in Genesis. He is named in the Torah.

Got a verse, or something?
