    When students in Turkey begin school today, it’ll be the last time they hear the words “evolution” or “Darwin” in the classroom. Next year, those words will be eliminated from all textbooks […]

    • Whilst a few interested parties object to the findings of climate science, and get their stooges to try to cast doubt on AGW, they do so on financial grounds. However when it comes to evolution and the big bang, the objections are invariably from reactionary religious people. I am not familiar with the Koran’s version of Genesis, but presumably the theory of evolution by natural selection conflicts with such account, much as it does with Genesis. If the Turkish ruling class want to shoot the next generation in the foot scientifically, then what better way than not to teach it ?
