Cobb County, Georgia to Insert Disclaimers into Biology Textbooks

Presented with petition of over 2300 signatures at last Thursday's Cobb County Board of Education meeting, officials decided to draft a "clarifying statement" describing evolution as "just one of several theories" explaining the diversity of life one earth. The statement is to be inserted into newly adopted science textbooks.

Over the objection of the standing room only crowd, the board voted unanimously to adopt the science textbooks, included in a $7.7 million package that also includes books for health and physical education.
