Too bad, there's at least one text from a scholar that explains how most things were already in the Quran and i'm pretty sure evolution was on the list too. I had a college who talked to me about it. Didn't dig in because if religious people can integrate it into their thinking so much the better but their understanding usually isn't too good & we're not likely to discuss stuff i'm intested in.

Anyway, no student of medice or biology should not be able to skip this stuff. We have the Humanities for a reason.
