Theory of Evolution

Thursday's decision by Judge Clarence Cooper means that the Cobb County, Georgia, has to remove stickers from their textbooks reading "Evolution is a theory, not a fact."

The issue here is one of linguistics. In the scientific realm things which are well understood are called theories. In order to be equitable other theories would include the theory of gravity. Both gravity and evolution have roughly the same amount of supporting evidence. It is the desire of some religious factions to deny the origins of the human race that led to the stickers in the first place.

Judge Cooper correctly recognized that this is a religious matter, not a matter of science.
