14162 ª January 25 11:22 AM. WA Lawmakers try to remove “repugnant” Theory of Evolution from schools . Yes, this is the 21st century, and yes – we in Washington State now have two bills, (Senate and House) before our congress that propose “All textbooks and curriculum that teach the theory of evolution shall be removed from the public schools forthwith and replaced with textbooks and curriculum that teach the self-evident truth of creation”.I don’t know whether this is a legitimate effort to change the law, or a (hopefully) doomed effort to curry favor with conservative voters.

I can’t believe people like this are still living in the dark ages. Sheesh!
