Lets stick to the proven magic of Christianity, shall we?

Thankfully we are still free to practice whatever flavor of Christianity we choose…this is after all America.

School District Tackles Evolution Debate

ATHENS, Maine — A school district in Somerset County is being urged by an Athens school board director to drop evolution from its high-school science curriculums.

Matthew Linkletter claims that evolution is an unprovable theory that should not be taught as fact.

The state, however, disagrees. A spokesman for the Department of Education says evolution is based on proven science, and its teaching in science classes is mandated by the Maine Learning Results program.

Directors of School Administrative District 59 will take up Linkletter’s arguments when it meets May 19.

SAD 59 includes Madison, Athens, Brighton Plantation and Starks.
