Response to Original message
35. Actually surprised
so many answered it favor. I know most answered yes for both sides and understand the criticism for that. I think they probably answered that way to please as many people with that response or they genuinely felt both sides should be told in school which is fine. I disagree with that myself, I don't have a problem with religious beliefs being taught in religious specific classes but evolution is a topic that should be in a science class probably biology.

Responses by Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, and Mississippi had me shaking my head. Probably others but I tried to make this post while watching the video so I have to reload it to watch it to the end.
