Is this a result ?

New editions of a Christian biology textbook will no longer contain the contentious idea that the beast may have been a real living creature.

Writers of the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) biology textbooks had once taught that the existence of the Loch Ness monster disproved Darwin’s theory of evolution.

But the educators have now dropped the creature from their teachings.

Not really. While it's quite a success for Jonny, they'll have done it to escape further mockery, not because he's convinced them that they're wrong. ISTR reading Jonny saying that they've just replaced Nessie with dragons, or something to that effect.

and says it's just one thing in one textbook. As nothing to what Dawkins says.
