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.

I’m mystified why non-believers have such an obsession with believers. If more people believe in creationism, will inflation, unemployment, crime, etc., etc. rise? I can’t recall being taught anything about creationism in school so, like others have pointed out, it’s not like any time is being taken up with religion during classes.

As for the argument that all the scientists that matter believe in evolution, we’re we just told that all the scientists that matter believe in man-made global warming? Forgive me if I’m skeptical.

Finally, doesn’t Dawkins claim that genetic mutations that add information to the genome are caused by natural selection? I read that somewhere but it’s seems too absurd for a scientist to suggest such a thing so I don’t know if it’s an authentic Dawkins stance.
