Did you know that only 40% of Americans accept the scientific concept of evolution? That's an educational disgrace for the worlds most powerful and influential nation. Sadly, here in the bible-belt of the South, that figure is even lower. The understanding of evolution is essential for the advancement of medicine, agriculture, ecology, biology, and many other scientific disciplines. Unfortunately this important knowledge is being stifled in our public school system. Our school boards are dominated by religious influence that seeks to downplay or omit the teaching of evolution in the science classroom.
You can help reverse this trend! Please join me in donating to Arkansas Darwin Day 2012. The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is proud to take a lead role in organizing this fun and educational program in conjunction with local universities and community organizations.
