Warning: Delayed Posting… This goes back to March.
An article in today’s New York Times, about anti-evolutionists trying to gain traction by marrying their crusade in an unholy union with global warming denial (a marriage significantly more disgusting than those these groups normally OPPOSE) shares this bit of Kentucky wisdom with us:
In Kentucky, a bill recently introduced in the Legislature would encourage teachers to discuss “the advantages and disadvantages of scientific theories,” including “evolution, the origins of life, global warming and human cloning.”
It’s bad enough they keep trying to rehash the “teach the controversy” argument, when the only thing “controversial” about evolution is that they refuse to consider evidence that contradicts their biblical literalism. But now they are basically stooping to argue “teach my faith on ALL subjects I disagree with.” Wait, that’s too narrow, if you include global warming. It is “teach my faith and politics on all subjects I disagree with.”
Beyond that, “human cloning” isn’t a theory. (Must not gouge out eyes!!)
