Re: “'Stealth creationism bill' may be dead for this Legislative session

Evolution is a byproduct of the process of genetic inheritance. If you understand how reproduction happens - the whole story involving DNA and mutations - and if you understand the basic ideas of selection pressure, then you will see that evolution is *bound* to occur. We can simulate it in the computer and watch it happening. In fact, simulated evolution is an important technique in large-scale computer design. Evolution is not just history: it is happening now, and it will go on happening as long as there is life on earth. Yes, evolution is central to the history of life, but that history is still going on. If you do not understand this then you simply cannot understand modern biology, modern medicine, even modern computer science. You will not understand why it is important to discover new antibiotics, or how we can create genetically modified disease-resistant crops. If we do not teach our students this fundamental idea, they will be helpless in the modern world.
