A Boca Raton father and son have filed a lawsuit claiming the Palm Beach County school board isn't teaching the theory of evolution. Brandon Silver, 11, and his father, attorney Barry Silver, filed an 18-page lawsuit last month but plan to serve the board Wednesday night.
"We've been taught about adaptations to the environment but that's not really a direct concept to evolution," said Brandon Silver.
"It's such a magnificent story and it's being neglected. The students are being deprived of learning from it because certain religious people don't like the story because it contradicts the Bible and we think it is terrible that children shouldn't learn the truth about where they came from," said Barry Silver.
Barry Silver said he filed the lawsuit last month.
Well good for Mr. Silver!
Now this is the kind of parent that we need to see more of.
The kind of parent who defends his child's right to learn facts instead of fantasy.
