This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.

This textbook asserts that gravity exists. Gravity is a theory, not a fact, regarding a force that cannot be directly seen. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.

This book discusses heliocentrism, the theory that the Earth orbits around a centrally located sun. Students should be encouraged to fully consider the evidence for, and the evidence against, this interesting idea.

This textbook suggests that the Earth is spherical. Because a few delusional wackos still think the Earth is flat, while others insist it is oblate spheroid, teachers are urged to skip over this controversial topic in lesson plans.

This textbook states that the Earth is over 4 billion years old. Because this fact conflicts rather directly with a hugely popular fictional account, both sides of the argument should be taught to impressionable children.

This book promotes the theory of plate tectonics, the gradual movement of the major land masses. Because nobody actually witnessed the land masses moving, teachers should refer to the theory as unprovable.

This textbook contains a chapter about general relativity, a theory that promotes relativism. The offending sections should be cut out of the book with a razor blade.

This textbook suggests that the origin of life was a wholly natural event. Because this view contradicts what fundamentalists want their children to believe, readers are encouraged to burn this book along with the author.

This book discusses God. The existence of entities with supernatural powers is controversial, and many believe that Gods, especially other people’s Gods, are fictional. This material should be approached with a sense of humor.

This book does not contain the word “evolution,” the unifying principle in biology and an important component of the National Science Standards and the Scholastic Achievement Test.

This pump dispenses gasoline, a fossil fuel. People who believe fossils are not real should put something else in their tanks.

This book discusses evolution. President George W. Bush said, “On the issue of evolution, the verdict is still out on how God created the Earth.” Therefore, until 2009 this material shood be aproched with an open mind, studeed carefuly, and critcly consid’rd.
