Jesus vs. Darwin: Round 2938


So the Pennsylvania school board that was recently sued for trying to teach creationism-lite, or intelligent design, as it is now called, along with evolution, was unanimously voted out of office in a display of how survival of the fittest works in the political science field.

I am still waiting to see the observable change in an intelligently designed cell. Is there a halo on its nucleus? Do the mitochondria output wine instead of water?

In other parts of the country, America's sad march towards worldwide irrelevance continues unabated. In Kansas, another school board voted 6-4 to make all their students even stupider. They also redefined the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena. Seriously. It's all in the article.

Instead science is now solely concerned with cool things that don't stir up controversy, like laser beams, rocket cars and teleporation pods. Pew pew!! Zap!! Woosh!! Zroommm!!!
