A Religious Controversy
We are watching a religious controversy play out within the public school system. Thousands of clergy around the country see evolution as compatible with faith. A small group of vocal anti-evolutionists disagree and want schools teaching their particular religious view of science.
Evolution is established science. The controversy is over the compatibility of science and faith.
Evolution is solid science—the controversy is religious. Anti-evolutionists say that you can't accept evolution and be religious. The very existence of The Clergy Letter Project proves this wrong. Over 12,000 clergy members around the country teach their congregations that evolution and religion get along just fine, that faith is not the fragile thing that anti-evolutionists make it out to be. Thousands of religious leaders agree with scientists that evolution is solid science.
Evolution went through the ringer in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and it only came out stronger. Texas is arguing over whether to teach established science in public schools.
Evolution is 21st Century science.
