It looks like we will be gearing up for another round of thinking/vs.

As a science teacher I have always taught about the many mysteries
found out there in the dirt and nearly every thinking child comes to
the correct conclusion about what is really happening.

Some years back I read a book by Stephen Jay Gould in which he wrote
something to the effect that evolution was one of the most
documentable and verifiable branches of science. He was responding to
the folks who keep arguing that evolution should be labled in school
as "theory only."

Can anyone tell me where this quote came from?
