Evolution Inaction?

I often comment on things saying that one should "Think of it as evolution in action." Problem is, according to a recent Gallup poll, only a third of Americans believe that evolution is a scientific theory well supported by the evidence. NPR's Science Friday last week covered how local school boards are handling (or more often mishandling) the teaching of evolution. Makes me afraid we are really heading for the kind of country shown in Heinlein's If This Goes On. Scary. At least it is to me!
