In 2002, officials in Cobb County, Georgia, slapped the above disclaimer
on biology textbooks after more than 2,000 parents protested that evolution was being treated as a fact, not a theory. The American Civil Liberties Union
and the parents of five students filed a lawsuit in response, stating that the
stickers were unconstitutional, violating the separation of church and state. At press time, the suit was before a U.S.
district court in Georgia.
