IRAN HOSTS EVOLUTION DENIAL CONFERENCE
TEHRAN Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad opened the conference with an angry condemnation of the "theory" of evolution as a hoax initiated and perpetuated by the "Great Satan". He accused the United States of undermining religion and claiming that human development took place in Africa and Europe instead of someplace in the Middle East, often referred to as the Garden of Eden .
Several scientists showed delegates how the complicated aspects of human life could not have evolved from animals but had to be the work of a higher being. At the conference's close Ahmadinejad announced that henceforth all schools in Iran would each creationism as the true story of humans in Persia and around the world. Evolution would become just a discredited theory relegated to textbook footnotes.
Several reporters and news organizations claimed that President George W. Bush was seen in attendance, incognito.
