Yes that is what they are saying, and it's been what they've been saying, more or less, since the 1950s at the latest.

Why would Republicans fear the teaching of science? I love science, and we had science when I was a kid in school. But "evolution" is not science. It is a belief system.

Teaching evolution as fact is an abomination to science.

Evolution is a constantly evolving theory that people cling to, which is proven wrong on a constant basis, and immediately changed, yet again, while those who cling to it refuse to question the premise behind it.

That is not science, that is faith and faith alone.

I take it we were created on FAITH ALONE - but at least I have the evidence of my own experience with God. When you admit that belief in evolution is on faith alone, with no supporting evidence at all, then I'll trust you believe in science.

Science is the pursuit of knowledge and fact - and the willingness to dispense with any premise which conflicts with facts - and evolution is the single largest walking contradiction ever to be foisted on man - even more so than things like spontaneous generation - it was dispensed with when further knowledge disproved it.

After many decades of constant proof that the theory of evolution is wrong, it is still clung to, and constantly and consistently re-written in attempts to keep it while accommodating or trying to explain away conflicting fact. It flies in the face of well established science which HAS proof, but is ignored. Why? Because to a certain few people, the alternative is simply unthinkable.

Correct. Evolution is the theory to explain the raw data found by various sciences. It gives great weight to some, ignores and contradicts others when needed to maintain the theory as "workable".

I am anti-established 'career' politicians. Here: Bill Clinton's name found 21 times in sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's directory - Washington Times with this latest scandal you have one career politician's wife that will probably run to be our next President - even though their marriage has obvious problems. Why do we go out of our way to 'hire' leaders that are loaded with human frailties'?

I know that we are all human and all of us have some problems. The longer anybody is in politics; the greater the odds of them bringing baggage to their new position. I am also tired of Bush regime. I am tired of the Boehner and Reed hierarchy - I want to see new faces and people that truly represent us and not special interest.

Well, that's pretty ignorant. There is only one "religion" that has flown planes into buildings, and it really isn't a religion it is a dangerous cult.

But "science" can also become a religion, if our devotion to science blinds us to the true source of power in the universe, and causes us to worship the earth. Then we fall prey to silly "sky is falling" notions such as "man caused 'global warming,'" which cause us to abandon some of our greatest technological achievements, and use of certain resources, out of fear that we actually have the power to destroy the earth. Science then becomes our 'god.' It controls us.

You have nothing to offer but hate. Oh, but you represent the tolerant, empathetic, caring liberals who are not like those nasty, closed minded, bigoted republicans.
This 'meme' that Republicans "hate" science isn't really working well for them, but they still try.

Funny, though, they hate things like 'fracking' and other technologies which conservatives champion; scientific achievements that make our lives better through affordable energy. If conservatives hated science, we wouldn't be developing these technologies.

It seems, however, that it is the liberals that would have us return to candle light and riding bicycles. Tell me again; who is "anti-science?"

It's a shame you aren't more filled with facts than hate but my kids go to school in *gasp* Kansas where many idiots might think they are being taught Noah road on dinosaurs in public schools and they are taught "actual science" including evolution.

However, it's fun to "sexy things up" for political attacks and ignore actual facts.
