Cobb County, GA Removing Evolution Stickers
After losing a court case over the stickers noting that evolution is “just a theory”, the stickers are now being removed.
MARIETTA, Ga. — Workers in Cobb County have begun removing controversial evolution disclaimer stickers from science textbooks to comply with a judge’s order.
By the end of the day Monday, several thousand stickers, which said evolution was a theory and not a fact, had been scraped off. The school district had put 34,452 stickers on textbooks across the county.
The evolution disclaimers read: “This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.”
Actually the stickers were also scientifically inaccurate. Evolution is a fact. Organisms change over time (mutations). Further, evolution and evolutionary theory is about diversity of life, not its origins. Shame on the school system, which appealing the earlier ruling, for promoting such junk science.
