Rankling neo-Darwinian evolutionists

Posted by: Hammer / 12:00 PM

Back porch ignorance from Alabama (Agape):

Science textbooks in Alabama public schools will continue to warn students that controversy surrounds the theory of evolution. The Alabama Board of Education recently agreed unanimously to retain an evolution disclaimer that has been in state biology textbooks for four years. The insert refers to evolution as a "controversial theory" on the origins of life.

...Nevertheless, supporters of the disclaimer being used in the Alabama public school biology textbooks realize the insert is likely to rankle neo-Darwinian evolutionists. A federal court declared a similar evolution disclaimer in Cobb County (Georgia) schools unconstitutional.

...The Eagle Forum supports an academic freedom bill in the Alabama legislature that would remove penalties from teachers who teach scientific criticisms of the theory of evolution.

At these moments, it's fun to pause and take a look at how the Eagle Forum rates Minnesota's congressional delegation:

There's nothing "pro-family" about raising a generation of ignoramuses.


There's nothing wrong with teaching scientific criticisms of Evolution. Scientific criticism i.e., peer review, is the root of scientific advancement.
BUT it has to be scientific criticism, not philosphical or religious or mythological criticism.
