RSR enjoyed Flock of the Dodos. While he was watching a movie, I was teaching about evolution. In the discussion afterward:
Jack Cashill was booed for asserting that over the last 2,000 years, only Western Christianity has supported science. Cashill also suggested that those who support the teaching of evolution haven't read much about it, once again eliciting groans from the audience.
Arabic scholars preserved much of the knowledge of Greece and Rome during the Medieval period, and advanced science on many fronts. Supporters of evolution include evolutionary biologists.

'Nuff said.
