According to the National Center for Science Education the state of Mississippi has become the first state legislature of 2010 to file an anti-evolution bill.
But check this out:
"proportionally equal" ????
If the time devoted to the evidence supporting evolution is "proportionately equal" to the amount of evidence supporting evolution, and the time devoted to the evidence against evolution is "proportionately equal" to the amount of evidence against it, then the lesson becomes easy to plan:

That 0.01% of class time could be used to point out the uniformly religious motivations of the anti-science movement, like the quote from the bill's sponsor:
Somehow, I doubt Chism recognizes what the word "proportionately" means.
