Texas board of education may reject biology textbook because evolution is but a theory


A biology textbook from Pearson is the subject of a renewed debate over evolution vs. creationism in Texas schools.

More science vs. magic in Texas schools: creationists in the state are rejoicing as the State Board of Education has held up the approval of a Biology textbook "because of alleged factual errors." The science tome from Pearson Education, one of America's largest publishers, contains a section on natural selection, and nothing about how Jesus made the dinosaurs. [AP]

Update: The textbooks were approved, and the Creationists lost this battle.
