    I am a High School science teacher in deep South Texas.  So many of the science teachers I work with are anti-science, anti-evolution zealots.  If you complain, it gets you in trouble.  I don't get it.

    What are the options?
    *Say nothing;
    Nothing changes.
    *State your position;
    Some will be angry, maybe even violent, some will think and maybe doubt their beliefs.
    *Argue and get in a fight;
    Positions become solidified as granite.
    *Whine about being ostracized;
    Believers think they win ... whatever.
    *Feel helpless;
    Nothing changes.
    *Feel strong, competent, confident;
    I can't think of a better way to confront a superstition.
