Last week the board changed the language, creating the latest arena in the clash between creationists and the scientific community. Both sides explain why the subtle language change may greatly affect how evolution is taught in Texas and the rest of the country.

    Aside:  Nowhere does current evolutionary theory hold that mankind descended from apes.

    Howsomever, considering the nature of much of our current political discourse, it is easy to conclude that we can learn something from well-ordered ape societies.
