On the teaching of Creationism in public schools ...
"I understand politicians like to compromise and that faced with one
group that says two plus two equals four and another group that
says two plus two equals six, will tend to arrive at a position
that says two plus two equals five. Unfortunately, sometimes the
answer has to be four, and this is one of those times."
-- Eugenie Scott of the National
Center for Science Education, 8-27-99, responding to Vice President
Al Gore's failure to clarify his comments about the teaching of Creationism
in public schools.
"Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution."
-- Theodosius Dobzhansky, geneticist, 1973
