As if we needed more evidence that creationists are the dumbest people on the planet, I saw this hilariously terrifying story today:
http://www.scotsman.com/news/odd/loch-n … -1-2373903
This fall, some Louisiana private schools will be using new "science" textbooks that attempt to disprove evolution using a mixture of flawed logic and made-up facts:
Worst of all, state tax dollars will be paying for this "education" as thousands of students attend private schools using publicly-funded school vouchers.
This is just the latest attack on science in Louisiana - in 2008 the state legislature passed the Louisiana Science Education Act, which calls on state and local education administrators to teach creationism and climate denial as alternatives to "controversial" topics: http://ncse.com/news/2012/04/repeal-eff … ana-007311
What's wrong with Louisianans?
If they get taken to court they will lose. The judicial will overpower the legislature. Hopefully some wise parent will sue.
Hope so. Preferably with some backing from the ACLU and NCSE. The problem is that the Science Education Law essentially condones this sort of thing, so the case will have to hinge on the constitutionality of both the law and the textbooks.
One would hope this is an open-shut case if it makes it to the Supreme Court. But with the current conservative makeup, I'm not so sure.
From what I read, these "science book" or BS books are being issued in the Christian schools and not real schools (public schools). It's funny that Catholic schools teach students the Big Bang and Evolution and totally dismiss creation and all the other cute stories. But to these feeble minded Christian school administrators, the idea of the earth being created in 7 days and life started in a plush garden with a talking snake makes better sense. I bet these Bible thumpers hate the idea of anyone use their brain or question these BS stories. Oh by the way, they might as well teach these brainwashed students that the earth is flat and is a the center of the universe because that's what the authors of these fairy stories believed. So if it's written in the Bible, it must be true! And Louisiana isn't really known for their quality of education.
May be they what to change America from the most developed nation to most idiotic nation!
The idiots are easier to control and manipulate. I mean if you look at the people who believe what the people in the media tell them, especially those who watch fox news, a media group who often uses creative editing to create lies, then you know we are already there.
They really want people to be stupid and compliant don't they?
I notice all the comments under that article are from Americans... it doesn't take much to figure that out. The Scottish are too busy laughing...
This makes me lose another point of faith in humanity. Why do some people insist on being so difficult and disregarding reality?
To these Bible thumping, Bible belt states, these Christian geniuses frown on the idea of thinking for yourself and being asked intelligent questions.
Louisiana 3rd Grade Science Student:
"But how come the Dinosaurs aren’t mentioned in the Bible?"
Louisiana poorly Educated Science Teacher:
“Because! Ugh. Because God said so! Yeah! God said so and if you don’t believe it, you’ll go to HELL! That’s why!”

The theory of evolution is in an immense danger to be discarded by everyone, whether doing science or not. What is the next paradigm to solve the mystery of the origin of man?http://home.wxs.nl/~gkorthof/kortho18.htm

The Right, in its fixation on parochial thought and indoctrination has provided just another reason for outrage. Is it no wonder they are the natural enemy of independent thought and inquiry. Of course, all of our...
