Primary education is evolving

I read today that the department of education in the UK is finally putting evolution into the primary school science curriculum, it will start to be taught to 8-9 year old children, as well it should. Evolution is the foundation of Biology, not teaching it until age 14 is just plain dumb, it's like teaching multiplication and division before addition and subtraction. No doubt there will be a fuss made of this by some of our religious brothers and sisters and I can imagine it won't go down without the usual silly canards from the less enlightened members of our population, that's my theory anyway.
