The article comments on John C. Greene's "Impressions of the Claremont Conference & Ernst Mayr" published in the September/October 2004 issue of the Reports of the National Center for Science Education. The author stresses that Greene's suggestion of giving a religious meaning to the instruction of evolution in schools and in repelling the efforts of creationist is unacceptable and serves as an insult to anyone who does not believe in the Bible. Furthermore, it is also emphasizes that Greene's proposal of having a discussion on evolution with students is a waste of time if they do not have an idea of what science is and what are the basic differences between science and religion.
