Turkey to stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools

TURKEY will stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools, deeming it controversial and difficult to understand, a senior education official says.

Critics say President Tayyip Erdogan and the Islamist-rooted AK Party are undermining modern Turkey’s secular foundations by pushing a conservative agenda, including tighter regulation of alcohol and other restrictions, since coming to power in 2002.

A chapter entitled Beginning of Life and Evolution will be deleted from the standard biology textbooks used in schools and the material will be available only to students who go on to university studies from age 18 or 19, Alparslan Durmus, head of the national education board said in an online address this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American comedian Ron White has a one-liner which absolutely applies here: "You can't fix stupid."

And this ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move has obviously been done to dumb down Turkish high school students by people who utterly do not understand the incontrovertible science of evolution.

It is a theory not a fact.

The Theory of Evolution as put out by Darwin is crumbling under the impact of new studies and discoveries. In the same catagory as the big bang theory. BEX!
