Evolutionary theory is the foundation for all of biology. As such, evolutionary theory underpins advances in fields such as agriculture, medicine, and ecology that drive our economy and improve the lives of this and future generations. Colorado and our nation cannot afford to lose their competitive edge by failing to educate their children to the highest standards. To prevent such failure, Coloradan scientists have organized (Colorado Evolution Response Team) to respond to inaccurate attacks on evolutionary theory and to oppose attempts to introduce religiously-motivated curricular changes into science classes in Colorado public schools or to weaken the teaching of evolution. As a group, we will also be proactive, encouraging a much more comprehensive instruction in evolutionary theories in our public schools than what is currently being presented. CERT is not associated with any political party or religious philosophy, and will maintain respect for diverse viewpoints on politics and religion.
