Religion is the last refuge of a con artist. When a corrupt political regime needs to execute a devious agenda, the easiest way to deter criticism is to create a religious conflict. The George W. Bush regime, in an attempt to distract the attention of the American electorate, has fabricated a debate within the education community.

Epicenter of Eden attempts to diffuse the argument with a compromise: if there was, in fact, a Big Bang, it would have been a cataclysmic event. To bring such chaos to order would require the intelligence of a superior being. The same God who created the Laws of Moses created the Laws of Physics.
