This is the 2019 Textbook that will be used in 9th and 10th grade biology classes across the country. I find it amazing how far evolutionary science has come since my 10th grade biology textbook in 1973.
Wait you mean Darwin’s idea is not on the edge of collapse, with scientists worldwide secretly hiding the fact that they know it’s a failed model?

Must have been dragonfly for me. A side story:
It was during my high school AP biology class that helped solidify my rejection of Christianity in my teenage years. I was filled with wonder learning about the scientific story of origins, perhaps in a similar sense as Einstein who supposedly remarked after a talk bubble Georges Lemaitre ‘that is the most beautiful and satisfying explanation of creation to which I have ever listened.’ It didn’t help that the Christians in class talked rather nasty about the teacher and that, combined with what I imagined the Christian explanation to be (i.e. that God just made stuff) helped solidify my movement away from the faith of my youth.
@pevaquark, can you tell us your story?
