Evolution Segment on Scarborough Country

The MSNBC show Scarborough Country will be doing a segment on evolution and creationism. Since the show is mostly a vehicle for right-wing propaganda, you can be sure there's going to be a lot of “Isn't it only fair to teach both sides?” and “Evolution's just a theory!”

On the other hand, the advertisement for the segment strikes the right tone:

Evolution, creationism, both? What should schools be teaching children about the origins of man? The Bible versus biology debate enter Scarborough Country.

Frames it pretty clearly as science vs. religion, I'd say. At least it didn't say “Rival scientific theories on the origins of man discussed tonight on Scarborough Country.”
