6. Texas is a real problem.
Edited on Thu Jan-10-13 04:56 AM by Enthusiast
At least in regard to the way they want to teach biology.

They argue that we should teach both evolution and creationism and allow the children to decide which they feel more comfortable with. This is absurd.

Creationism and its wolf in sheep's clothing cousin, 'intelligent design', do not even rise to the level of a hypothesis let alone a theory.

Would we allow children to decide that 2+2=5 instead of the accepted mathematical theory that 2+2=4? The people of Texas are dumbed down so badly that school boards all over the state buy into the 'let the children decide' argument. It ain't science but there it is.
