Perhaps as big as the evolution vs. creation battle has been scientifically, the culture war over the issue is as big if not bigger than the science battle.
Should we consider above image offensive? According to Smith-Cotton High school, the image is indeed offensive.
The latest battle comes from Sedalia, MO where it's local high school found it's marching band wearing t-shirts that showed the traditional alleged evolution of humans (pictured left) holding brass instruments that evolved from the 1960's.
In the touchy issue of separation of church vs. state, any references to religion by a public school is definitely frowned upon and will most likely end with a lawsuit. But does the same issue work both ways? Should we consider evolution a religious problem and therefore not allow schools to promote it?
Considering evolution is already taught in public schools, I am not exactly sold that evolution should not be promoted by public schools. What do you guys think? Is evolution a religious issue and therefore should not be promoted? And if evolution is not a religious issue, is it therefore permissible for a school to promote evolution?
