Anti-Evolutionists establishing the realities of a form of social evolutionary way...

pponents of teaching evolution, in a natural selection of sorts, have gradually shed those strategies that have not survived the courts. Over the last decade, creationism has given rise to “creation science,” which became “intelligent design,” which in 2005 was banned from the public school curriculum in Pennsylvania by a federal judge.

Now a battle looms in Texas over science textbooks that teach evolution, and the wrestle for control seizes on three words. None of them are “creationism” or “intelligent design” or even “creator.”

The words are “strengths and weaknesses.”

Starting this summer, the state education board will determine the curriculum for the next decade and decide whether the “strengths and weaknesses” of evolution should be taught. The benign-sounding phrase, some argue, is a reasonable effort at balance. But critics say it is a new strategy taking shape across the nation to undermine the teaching of evolution, a way for students to hear religious objections under the heading of scientific discourse.

They can learn to adapt to new tactics and new phraseology, as the older meme set dies...

But will that really get them back to the golden age of american social darwinism, when the Spencerianist Dogma about 'the survival of the fitist' was the way to explain all forms of "americanist triumphalism", not the least of which had been manifest destiny...

hey kids, here is an interesting 'strengths and weakness' debating point:
Would you wish to be treated by a medical doctor who has adopted, amongst other sins, the germ theory of disease, and hence the ongoing mutations in the virological wonderland of diseases.

Or would you feel safer reverting to a time before lister's anti-septics became all the pop rave...
but then again, in texas, who knows, maybe modern medicine hasn't reached them.

What will be really fun is when americans are able to spot the differences between evolutionary biology and the various manifestations of social darwinism, and gosh, maybe that Ideas are not Biological Forms???

But thank God we have RoboBushCheney!!!
