The article concludes by citing their hero --- LENIN :

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fightback has already begun, and the Reuters item reports Lyudmila Alexeyeva, a veteran Russian dissident, as saying that Russian liberals would fight all attempts to introduce religious teaching into classrooms, especially science. She says: "It's a dangerous idea and we will do all we can to stop it. We overcame communism as the state ideology and certain forces want to replace it with Orthodox Christianity."

Orthodox Christianity is, however, Russia's dominant religion, and services are attended by the country's leaders, prime minister Vladimir Putin and president Dmitry Medvedev.

With pressure from evangelicals for the US to abandon the division between church and state insisted upon by Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers, and the growing influence of the Orthodox church within Russia, we could see an unlikely alliance forged between former enemies. Jefferson and Lenin would be spinning in their tombs.

... as pointed out in a superb blog by Michael Zimmerman in the Huffington Post ...

Does not compute.

It just dawned on me this evening. Modern humans are nearly biologically identical to the earliest humans. Evolution takes too long for any significant changes to have occurred over the last 100,000 years.

But somehow, these early humans, who did not even have a spoken language, much less a written one, possessed brains which with almost no evolutionary change, would be capable of developing not only spoken and written language, but all of modern science.

How does a mutation create a 100,000 year leap in a species, in a way which that trait will not even be start to be exploited for 90,000 years?

What are you smoking?

The fear-mongering of those who hate God never ceases to amaze.

The Soviet Union actually rejected the teaching of evolution. One of those myths that Communists and Nazis were evolutionists. The former was a proponent of some oddball theory, the latter pushed Thulistic occult beliefs of a creation of different classes of people.

It just occurred to me that maybe you're using the term "evangelicals" to include Obama's Sharia buddies.

They do indeed see the full abandonment of division between church and state in the United States, as well as the entire world.

Why can’t evolution and a “creator” coexist?

Cosmopathology and the Descent of the Left

"...Thus, the Founders were able to formulate the ideal of separation of church and state, not for the purpose of ending religion's influence, but strengthening it."

Good night!

I don't know if the New Scientist people are any good at Science but when it comes to History, they are Deeply Ignorant. Or Stupid.
