One Step Forward

Stand up, stand up for Darwin,
For ignorance reigns still!
If you value truth and science,
Stand fast, though none else will!

With pandering textbook publishers,
And cowardly school boards,
Creationist superstition
Would drag us all backwards! – LLF

In a recent poll, only 39 percent of Americans indicated that they believe the theory of natural selection. Oh well, we know that evolution is a very slow process – and it’s only been 150 years since Charles Darwin’s treatise On The Origin of Species was published. Maybe someday.

About l. l. frederick

I'm pretty ordinary, so I find any number of things in the world interesting, among them: books, music, flowers, food, social justice, politics and (sometimes!) people. As for my writing, I've decided that I can be subtle and tasteful when our only problems are esthetic ones. Or when I'm dead, whichever comes first. In the meantime, read at your own risk.
