Summary: “There is little acceptance of evolution as a concept among mainstream Muslim clerics in the Middle East, who believe it contradicts the story of creation in scripture…”
…the miRNA profile of mature ejaculated sperm may in fact have downstream consequences upon embryonic development. The potential for sperm miRNA affecting zygote development has recently been reported in the literature  and has interesting implications for the use of sperm miRNA profiles as indicators of potential male fertility.

…learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology.
There is little acceptance of evolution as a concept among mainstream Muslim clerics in the Middle East, who believe it contradicts the story of creation in scripture, in which God breathed life into the first man, Adam, after shaping him from clay. Still, evolution is briefly taught in many high school biology courses in the region.
The failure to arrive at a consensus about whether or not to teach students to believe in the pseudoscientific nonsense about mutations and evolution or to teach Creationism can be attributed to the serious scientists who have linked natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality to all biodiversity via the sense of smell and feedback loops that link odor and pheromones to the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans.
