Re: Evolution in school - Gov. Perry and Bill White disagree

The intelligent answer is that when you look at the genetic and the fossil evidence, it is clear that modern monkeys and modern humans share a common ancestor (as even ID advocate Michael Behe admits). The monkeys of today have evolved to fit the environments they are in.

It doesn't take faith to accept something based on literally tons of evidence. As for the age of the earth, if the principles on which radioactive dating is based were faulty then nuclear power plants would not work either.
