ABSTRACT
The article comments on how the U.S. motion picture industry dumbs down movies about cute animals and misses a chance to teach evolution. At least since the Scopes Monkey Trials in 1925 religious forces in the U.S. have tried to corrupt U.S. science education by sowing confusion about evolution, the cornerstone of biology. But their most pernicious effect may not be in overt inanities like anti-Darwin warning stickers in textbooks, which in any event the courts have stymied.
