Charles Darwin wrote: “I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits…”

There is simply no way for any unguided, unintelligent account of the unfolding of life to avoid the bane of helpful degradative mutations.
First, it is definitely NOT against either federal law or Supreme Court precedent to teach about scientific criticisms of Darwin’s theory.
