Abolish the Factual Teaching of Evolution in Wisconsin Public Schools
- Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

As time goes on, it is becoming more acceptable to state evolution as a fact inside the education atmosphere. However, the proof for evolution has not increased, but is lacking more and more every day. Stated below are facts that show the theory of evolution lacks substance.
First, there exist no transitional fossils. These are a must-have in order for evolution to even be considered as true. However, all the assumed transitional creatures and intermediate fossils have been found to be their own species.
Second, dating methods such as carbon dating and radiometric dating are not reliable. Carbon dating is based on the assumptions that all organisms take in the same amount of 14C atoms and the ratio of 14C to 12C atoms in our atmosphere are always the same. However, both of these have been proven false. Radiometric dating methods show isotope ratios, which are by no means dates. Also, both of these methods do not work together. 14C atoms only last for "50,000 years," but far too often fossils that are radio metrically dated to millions of years old, contain C14 (such as coal).
These are just a few examples of the large gaps in the evolution theory. As Dr. Patterson from the British Museum of Natural History said, "If I knew of any [transitional] fossils I would certainly recognize them...I will lay it on the line, there is not one such fossil for which one could make a watertight argument [for evolution]."
Teaching evolution on a factual basis is lying to our students, our future leaders.
We, the undersigned, call the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to abolish the factual teaching of evolution in Wisconsin public schools.
Education is meant further a student's knowledge of facts. Far too often, educators are sharing their opinions on the theory of evolution, not realizing just how influential they are. Students trust educators to supply factual knowledge, not opinion.
The teaching of evolution is a theory based on assumptions, not fact. Therefore, that is how is should be addressed to students.
