Turkey bans teaching of evolution in Schools

Turkey has banned teaching of evolution as 'controversial' in high schools, the minister of education says it should be reserved for university courses.

This is odd since most schools of Islam believe that evolution is compatible with Islam and many argue the Quran even references it. Creationism ideas are usually taken from christian fundamentalists no from an Islamic tradition.

The only other country to ban teaching of evolution is Saudi Arabia (nuff said).

This is disappoint, if the government of Turkey feel free to ban evolution almost certainly other issues will be censored. They have recently sacked many teachers so the remaining teachers are likely to be cowed. Many journalists have been sacked and papers closed, so there may not be much internal opposition.
