Evolushark, a blue shark uniquely formed by the word "evolution", is a science mascot specifically designed to discourage conservative Christians from trying to inject creationism into public school science curriculum. By intimidating their mascot Ichthys, Evolushark symbolically warns conservative Christians that attempts to impose their sectarian beliefs on America's secular society face strong opposition.
Secularism, the view that public education and other matters of civil policy should be conducted without the introduction of a religious element, is embodied in the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Over the past 80 years, creationists opposed to Darwin's theory of evolution have repeatedly tried to violate this clause. They first attempted to replace Darwinism with creationism, then worked to have it removed from biology textbooks, and finally tried to get creationism taught alongside evolution in science classes. In the last few decades, evangelical Christians (creationists, charismatics, born agains, etc.) have politically joined forces, in an effort to impose their shared conservative Christian beliefs on all of America. Evolushark offers a humorous, yet powerful way, to express disapproval of these serious sectarian attacks on our secular society.
