Petition against intelligent design being taught in Missouri schools
Below is an email from Michelle Burdick, a MoveOn member in Raytown, MO, who created a petition on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.
Dear Missouri MoveOn member,
Missouri State Representative Rick Brattin is proposing intelligent design/creation be required teaching and given equal time in every science classroom in Missouri, including college level classes.
This will also require the schools to spend money on new textbooks on or including intelligent design.
We need to tell the Missouri General Assembly NO on HB 1227. That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to Rep. Rick Brattin, the Missouri General Assembly, and Governor Jay Nixon, which says:
We do NOT want intelligent design taught in Missouri science classrooms.

the level of science education in the general population is frighteningly bad enough, without ID nonsense making it worse.
Hopefully, Missouri follows the lead of the good folk in Dover, PA and keeps such religious bullshit out of the science classroom.
