Another source of shame

Wow, is this an appalling chart.  That is, the information represented on the chart is appalling.  (Click to enlarge).

Evolution is the fundamental, underlying principle of all biology.  You cannot understand biology without an understanding of evolution.  And yet only 10% of American states explicitly mention evolution in their school curriculum.

Americans are doomed to scientific irrelevancy if this kind of politicization of scientific truth is not stopped.

And how much do you want to bet that some of those only mention it to debunk it?

Yay, Indiana! Kinda surprised by that, actually.
