Man are you full of c***
First, to deal with you last post, evolution has not stopped, there has been plenty of
evolution going on in the last 6000 years and is still going on today.
And second, evolutionary theory is one of the things that tells us that the 'eugenics'
and genocide of the last century are a bad f****** idea.
The ONLY thing that ties evolution to 'eugenics' and genocide is an idiotic misunderstanding
of the phrase "survival of the fittest" which was neither coined nor promoted by Darwin and
was a poor attempt to simplify the idea for the lay person.
Evolutionary theory is the bedrock of ALL biology and medicine and no curriculum that fails
to teach it can justifiably claim to be a science curriculum.
Teaching biology without evolution is like trying to teach solar system dynamics without gravity.
Claiming otherwise is both ignorant and stupid... As well as bloody dangerous.
We have over the last 150 odd years made epic strides in eliminating disease through medicines
None of which would have been possible without a proper understanding of evolutionary theory.
If you don't believe me then I invite you to go find a good historian and find out what the mortality
rates were 100~200 years ago from diseases that you almost never hear of in the modern world.
Read about The Plague, Cholera, and Small Pox.
Then look me in the eye and tell me that science and medicine and evolution is evil.
