Evolution alternatives?

OKC's chapter of Americans United for Separation & State is helping support our federal First Amendment right to freedom of religion and to maintain the Oklahoma Constitution's Article 2, section 5 restriction from allowing tax money to be used for religious purposes.


Our chapter president, Mike Fuller, was recently quoted for an Oklahoma Gazette story (linked below) on the attempt by some legislators to equate religious creationism with scientific evolution.


clip -- According to Mike Fuller, president of the Oklahoma Chapter of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, there is no valid criticism of the theory of evolution as a comprehensive theory, only with aspects of it. “There is no scientifically credible theory that competes with evolution,” said Fuller, a former junior high science teacher. “This is yet another of the continuing efforts to bring religion, in the form of intelligent design or creationism, into science classes. There simply is no controversy about the truth of evolution in science fields.”
