Evolution in Question

April 30, 2008 | Blog

The Kansas State Board of Education circa 2005 retains the gold medal for Wackiest State Policymaking Body based on its creationism of science standards that promoted intelligent design and trampled upon the theory of evolution. (Those, of course, were overturned by the subsequent Board.)

But the Florida House of Representatives circa 2008 is a strong contender for the silver medal based on its passage on Monday of the “Evolution Academic Freedom Act,” a piece of legislation modeled after one drafted by the pro-intelligent design Discovery Institute.

Any other nominees? Who should get the bronze?

    Liam, what do you fear, that another view can enter the equation and further erode the myth of evolution? Are you seeking the gold medal for censorship?

    In the public forum, say whatever you wish. But a science class in a public school is no place to prostylize.
