Who is Cody Gault? And why is a senior in college lecturing us with barely literate snark? Didn't Keith Olbermann attend Cornell?
Actually evolution states that some ancient fish became amphibians, some of those became reptiles and from there some branched off to become mammals and some branched off to become birds.
To say evolution does not teach that we came from something like a fish or pond scum is nothing but a lie.

According to an international education test, American 15-year-olds rank 23rd in the world in science and 31st in math.
That's not because - God forbid! - creationism is being taught, it is rather that classroom hours are spent on self-esteem and multicultural and race and gender topics.

"To say evolution does not teach that we came from something like a fish or pond scum is nothing but a lie."
Makes no difference. Once you accept random chance as the starting point with mutation and survival of the fittest as the method it's all the same. In fact, sticking to strict rules like reptile first, mammal next, shows an alarming lack of survival ability. Everything interesting is happening at the edges of the herd, not in the middle where everyone is walking along in one anthers' mammal dung.
It takes an alarming lack of faith in survival of the fittest to preach it as the main factor in bringing mankind this far and then being afraid it will go off track if you allow people to hear alternatives. The priesthood of Random Chance is doomed because people now know that those who predicted it would corrupt society were right. It leads to a self-proclaimed nobility telling the masses when their grannies are shovel ready and that their children are inconvenient tissue masses.
Suicide isn't a survival enhancing trait, whether you trace it through pond scum or reptile then mammal. More money for the self-proclaimed nobility is the real issue, not what gets taught. What gets taught is an issue because it drives the Random Chance faithful into a frenzy of resistance to change even though they insist random change is the driving force behind evolution. So, they want more money to ensure that what they teach as critical doesn't actually happen.

There are two Americas: one that believes in God, freedom, and individual choice, and the other that believes in evolution, government control, and the nanny state.
The belief system and worldview makes all the difference.

(Any politician who holds that the state accords rights is an oathbreaker and an "enemy... domestic.")
When did Darwininuts become the procurers of free thought considering they are a member of a religion by definition and practice. Modern evolutionary biology has rejected reason and evidence and replaced it with fanciful tales and pretty drawings. I heard that Richard Dawkins is expecting an UFO to bring back Haeckel and they were going to take off together in their spaceship and drink kool-aid and sing the famous intellectual ballad, “If I only had a brain”. Yea, Haeckel was once mainstream and so were various theories relating to ambiogenisis but reason prevailed against the cult leaders of the day. Hold on but Science today FINALLY has it together and has abandoned these weaker theories right? Unfortunately some who claim “science” lie. The only evidence that exists for evolution is the opinions, predispositions, and rhetoric of pseudo-scientific extremists.
