That’s nine newspaper editorials in favor of including evolution in the state science standards and zero in favor of “other theories.” The South Florida Sun Sentinel jumps on board.

Evolution isn’t debatable in many parts of the world, and among a majority of scientists, but somehow Florida hasn’t fully gotten the message.

Let’s leave science to the scientists. Scientific evidence has long backed up evolution to explain the development of species, and it’s time that message reached the state’s public schools. Florida students have scored poorly on college entrance tests, and science surely hasn’t been a strong point.
