Evolution Disclaimers

If you haven't already heard, a school district in Georgia is putting the following stickers in their science books: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered." Here's a JPEG of the sticker.

I can't believe this is being done thanks to some loud-mouth folks who are against evolution (and yes, it is possible to believe in both creationism and evolution -- we're starting to see a two-party system like we are in politics, but I digress). The folks who are against evolution are generally religious folks, and are we supposed to keep religion out of public schools?

Anyway, Davezilla has a great rant on the topic where he suggests some other stickers as well:

This textbook contains material on carpentry. Woodworking is a theory, practiced by Jesus of Nazareth, not a fact, regarding the creation of wooden furniture. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and not undertaken without OSHA-approved safety glasses.
His commenters also have some good contributions. There are some humorous ones (and good discussion on this topic) over at this site.

Thanks to about 400 sites for the link.
