Teach evolution as fact

Church of the Flying Spaghetti MonsterDr Richard Pike, chief executive of the Royal Society of Chemistry, says that we should stop kowtowing to creationists by talking about evolution as an "idea" or "theory" that should be taught alongside such nonsense as Intelligent Design:

"Above all, we should no longer talk of the theory of evolution as though it is 'just an idea'. So well-established is it, that it now warrants the designation of an immutable scientific law, and should be taught as such. It is on this basis that further dialogue should begin."
