Biology will never change
Something like 50% of Americans do not believe in evolution.
This says more about our educational system than it does about there being an actual debate in the US about evolution.
Little things crop up here and there but it does so also in the UK.
There are also constantly court cases about it. Look at the mess Kansas is in with their board of education. I know most Christians do not have a problem with evolution, but I do not think this is a small problem, nor do I think it is going away any time soon.
These problems ONLY come up in high schools or middle schools. There is no problem ever with teaching evolution with regards to biology at the college/university level. That's why I believe there really is no issue.
I mean, here in this forum there's a debate about it because that's what this forum is about. It's mostly for entertainment, and I suspect those on the side of intelligent design or creationism don't really think they're actually going to change the entire world's understanding of biology and/or evolution. Boy that would really take some serious evidence to convince everyone from here to the far east that everything they know about biology and the history of life is wrong. Which frankly will never happen. If anyone here on the side of ID or creationism truly believes biology will change their views on evolution then they are delusional.
The US as a whole is no different from this forum I believe. Some parents will try to bring it up in their local districts, but they'll never change the way our universities teach biology. What will happen is those kids who who's parents teach them that the evolutionary biology taught in their schools is wrong will just fail. And in that respect, who really needs them? There's plenty of other kids around the world ready to take their place.

Re: Theology
They aren't for anyone to debate because opinions don't matter.
I'm guessing this is your opinion?
