ScienceInsider: Turkish Scientists See New Evidence of Government's Anti-Evolution Bias

The Turkish goverment's rejection of a proposal for a summer school program on evolution was justified because. "evolution is a controversial subject."

This is the exact phrase used in the Discovery Institute, and Focus on the Family propaganda supporting legislation to supress teaching biology in American schools.

I see evolutionary progress here, previously we would have been burned at the stake...or worse... Now it is at least controversial. Give it some time, food, water, medicine, economic prosperity and a spoonful of logic every few days then we'll see what happens in a few decades ;-)
