What's true is that most arguments that you start with atheists center around accepting evolution. So I could see how you might get that impression. But it's false. Then we'd have to teach them to have reservations. Science isn't accomplished through unconditional acceptance. Evolution isn't a religion. But at least we could stop worrying about religious fanatics trying to prevent science education nationwide. What they care about is religious tards trying to prevent their children from being taught science. The actual personal beliefs of the religious nuts themselves are of little interest. If the fundies could manage to keep their mess in their own yard, and not work to impose it on everyone else, there'd be no controversy. Religious wackos, for whatever reason, aren't mounting national political campaigns to remove instruction in those subjects from schools. Lots. The Catholic Church is not part of a organized political campaigns to screw up education in my country. They teach evolution in Catholic schools. But the Catholics in general were never a big problem with evolution (they seem to have learned their lesson from the whole Galileo incident). Perhaps it's because they pride themselves on operating respectable research universities. Anyway, it's always been the fundamentalists that are the problem, and they've never exactly gotten along well with the Catholics.
