South Carolina high school students going to Hell
This is from the state's official high school biology standards:
Biology Standard B-5: The student will demonstrate an understanding of biological evolution and diversity of life.Not a word about "intelligent design" or how "evil-lution" is "only a theory" or "has never been observed" or "can't possibly be true, seeing as how the universe is less than 10,000 years old." What's the matter with South Carolina, do they want their kids to be Left Behind when the Rapture comes?
B-5.1 Summarize the process of natural selection.
B-5.2 Explain how the process of natural selection results in the continuity of life forms over time and the diversity of present day life forms on Earth.
B-5.3 Explain how diversity within a species increases the chances of its survival.
B-5.4 Explain how genetic variability and environmental factors lead to biological evolution.
B-5.5 Exemplify scientific evidence in the fields of anatomy, embryology, biochemistry, and paleontology that supports the theory of biological evolution.
B-5.6 Classify organisms into a hierarchy of groups and subgroups based on similarities that reflect their evolutionary relationships.
