Usually I reserve a special kind of contempt
for people who claim possession of the capital-T TRUTH and preach denigration of all heterodox positions, and that's still a useful position to take in most situations, in most places, with most nefarious truth-claiming characters—but you know what? America denies evolution's role
in the development of complex life, and she is wrong. Contemptuously, madly, utterly and completely wrong.
And let me go a little easier on myself, while masochism is still legal: I, nor any evolutionary biologist, nor any biologist
for that matter, cannot and will not claim special knowledge. We have what scientists have wrought for the past century and a half: careful observation and theory, applied consistently to the evidence. Undoubtedly, there are many particulars which are currently misunderstood, or just plain wrong. But that evolution has occurred is a fact
So now, America—learn to deal with it.
