Book Description:

In The War on Science Goes Batshit, author Allen J. Woppert delivers an enthralling, entertaining story of fiction that is both controversial and endearing. The story deeply explores the ongoing war between proponents of the religious doctrine of intelligent design and proponents of the scientific laws of evolution; at the same time it presents a compelling story of ordinary and extraordinary teens coming of age and encountering new situations like high school dynamics, bullying, insecurities in friendship, and first love.The storys main character and narrator, fourteen-year-old boy genius Timothy Thompson, is a freshman at Omar L. Batshit (pronounced baht-SHEET) High School in Batshit, Illinois. His life totally changes one day when he challenges his biology teacher, Mrs. Barker, for attempting to introduce and teach intelligent design as science.Timothy is a science buff and his mom is a lawyer, so the two of them join forces to stop Mrs. Barker from teaching religion in a public school, which is prohibited by the First Amendment. Though they succeed in their efforts, Timothys feelings of triumph are short-lived. No sooner than the battle between Timothy and Mrs. Barker ends, Timothy is pitted against almost the entire Batshit community.Timothys encounter with Mrs. Barker is perceived by many as anti-Christian, and Timothy is considered Batshits very own anti-Christ. He is subjected to hatred, bullying, and seditious plots, targeted not only by fellow students but also by his gym teacher, Mr. Braun.Luckily, Timothy has like-minded friends to whom he can turn for comfort and help, including Megan Chow, whom Timothy has vowed to make his girlfriend by the end of the school year. Timothys friends are science geeks, just like him, and together they plan a lecture series to teach the real science” that Mrs. Barker wont teach.
