Should evolution be taught in schools?

Yes. It's called Lamarckian inheritance and we've been doing it a long time. While strictly biological evolution continues to shape us, we achieve evolutionary change much more rapidly in a social context. Through transmission of knowledge, skills and tools to the next generations we are effectively evolving our own selves faster than nature can.

Islamic victory looks likely in Egypt

That doesn't appear to be working out for us. I don't know that it moderates either side, in fact.

They'll have to figure out their tradition themselves. It's not like we did a particularly good job of it ourselves for the first 100 years or so. Slavery was still legal under our constitution, we committed a genocide and, in one of the more oft over looked violations of delegated constitutional authority, we purchased a large parcel of land from the french that now constitutes 1/3 of our landmass.

If Egypt is anything like America or France then it will get sorted out. Eventually. The people know that want something different and are working towards that. They just haven't got it all sorted. The question is how messy will they be in the process. If we're any indication it will be messy as hell.

You guys do realize that the article points out that the liberals lost and the conservatives won, right? Egypt will now be ran by the North African / Middle Eastern equivalent of conservative christians.
