the achievement gap between African-American and white pupils,

Do the Evolution Chicagoist

Though
museum officials say the timing is just a coincidence, the Field Museum display
opens as Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection faces

created humans in their present form exactly the way the Bible
describes it." 53 percent. Of adults. Another 51 percent
believe that the remote control to their television actually works
because a small bird flies out of it and changes the channel for them,
and that their vacuum is really just a little wooly mammoth that snorts
dirt.
