House Bill 368 passed on April 7, now watch out for Senate Bill 0893. This bill is disguised as promoting critical thinking and scrutinizing scientific evidence, but in actuality is a classic creationist "Teach the Controversy" bill. Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this.
The bill, or at least I believe it to be the current version:
A committee meeting that makes abundantly clear the intent of this bill:http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/default.aspx?BillNumber=SB...
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Thank you. I have just read through the entirety of Eugenie Scott's fine piece of writing.
You're welcome. It's a great site and I love the NCSE...but I especially adore Eugenie!
It's as if these biblical creationism education activists have no concept that there are a zillion other creation myths out there. Can they really be ignorant to the fact that all those other religions out there believe OTHER STUFF? Stuff NOT IN THE BIBLE.
It's not just a matter of "a creator made all things according to their kind" versus "we evolved." Opening that door lets in so much other ridiculous riff-raff.
