Call me a pedant, but at least one is wrong. ;-)

This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.” – Emphasis added.

Evolution doesn’t postulate on the origin of life, just the change of / speciation of life over time.

LOL. Yes, of course it’s wrong. :) At the bottom of the page it is taken from (from the Swarthmore College Biology website) is the following message:

In case you’re curious, wording for the first disclaimer (top left) is taken verbatim from the stickerdesigned by Georgia’s Cobb County School District (“A community with a passion for learning”) in Georgia. The school board actually plagiarized Alabama’s evolution disclaimer.

The rest of the stickers are taking the piss out of the first one.

Ahhhh… Didn’t realise the first was the original. Thought it was just a sarcastic sticker or something.
