Stephen Colbert Interviews Texas School Board Creationist Don McLeroy

This nut was in charge of textbook standards that influenced the whole country
Wingnuts • Views: 30,753

On the Stephen Colbert show, here’s young earth creationist Don McLeroy, the fanatic appointed to the Texas State Board of Education by Rick Perry, and subject of many a post at LGF.

Weep for the future of America, because McLeroy’s stunning anti-science ignorance may seem extreme, but it’s not unusual in the Republican Party.

The idea of that man in charge of anything related to education is horrifying.

I have often felt that America and China have traded places since the 19th century. Back then, America (and the West) was sheltered by the strong arms of science and technology. China was a backward state with an outdated political system that bitterly resisted political reform, education reform and Western science. History recalls that political leaders in China then arrogantly asserted the superiority of their "civilization," believing they (who were the world's most powerful civilization for centuries) had nothing to learn from the West. History taught us what happened next.

Today, the roles have reversed. The Chinese have embraced Western science, Western knowledge, Western economic systems, and are a superpower sheltered by the strong arms of science and technology that made us strong. America, on the other hand, is rejecting those very things. Too many Americans have become new "Qing Dynasty Mandarins", stubborn in their believe that our system is perfect, intransigent to reform, refuse to learn from other countries even when demonstrable evidence show others are doing things better than we do on, for example, healthcare, education, infrastructure investment.

Here's the truly scary part -- McLeroy might not be on the Texas State Board of Education anymore, but he's not the only imbecile to serve on it. To wit:

Former Texas SBOE Member: Opposition to Teaching Creationism in Science Classrooms Is Like ‘Pre-Holocaust Germany’

More From Ed Board Candidate Spurlock: No Sex Ed, Kids ‘Are Gonna Figure It Out on Their Own’ Anyway

That same anti-sex ed genius also said this:

Texas Education Board Candidate: The Pilgrims Were Communists!

These are the kinds of people who want to set education policy, not only in Texas, but for the rest of the country, because the way the textbook scam works, whatever we buy for public schools here gets picked up elsewhere.

He's managed as succinct a statement of RR talking points as I have ever seen in wingnuttish discourse.

When are these poseurs going to admit that their real problem with the Feds has to do with civil rights and the forcible abolition of slavery?
They would have no complaint with federal intrusion if it were directed, say, into people's bedroom or toward the medievalist suppression of science.

Actually, though not the way she meant it the pilgrims were communists. Their production went into a common pool which was administered and distributed by the leaders. This got changed (and in many ways went too far the other way), but they were communistic at first.

So if God was there for all of eternity that would equate to an infinitesimal time frame or (∞). Think not in terms of billions of years or even trillions. Infinity. Finally, after sitting around in the void of space He decided to create the "heavens and the Earth" and "man in His image." Thus after an existence of this supernatural being who was present in the void for a period of infinity it all came down to the last 6,000 years.

At a certain level of nuttiness, you become immune to satire. I think McLeroy is at it. If you deny empirical reality, why would you care that someone was making fun of you?

You make a very good point about China. I'd like to add that there are many other countries, in addition to China, that are catching up to us. For all I know, in some areas, they may be moving ahead of us. For years, stem-cell research has flourished in other countries, while the religious right fought it here. Iran (or whoever may have helped them) knew enough to bring down our drone, which they're now studying. Israel's Stuxnet virus gives us a glimpse of the cyberwar we may face in the future. America cannot afford to undermine any of its advancements in science, and especially cannot afford to undermine the science education of its children. The world is not standing still.

The test of one's faith isn't that you believe in the creation story in the Bible and that you must convince everyone else as to its absolute truth absent and contrary to all science and objective examination of the natural world around us.

It's that you still believe in G-d notwithstanding the creation story.

At least, that's how I see it.

The creation story is a parable of understanding how the universe and the Earth came to be. When you have even the Pope saying that faith and evolution can go hand in hand, you know you're out of the mainstream by peddling ID or creationism.

The folks who push creationism - taking and adhering to a literal interpretation - have made this the entirety of their worldview and central religious tenet, despite the fact that it comes from about 3 dozen lines in Genesis.

Fact is that if you look at these same lines, they too form a general understanding of the universe that takes into account evolution (lesser creatures and plants came before man) and even the modern understanding of cosmology.

Phil Bryant: Liberals' 'One Mission in Life is to Abort Children'

Bryant: You would think that Barack Obama and all those on the left that love so much to talk about women’s health care would rush to support this bill, would just say, ‘absolutely we want the strongest health care, we want admissions privileges, we want that women that is going through that abortion for her life and safety to be paramount,’ well it should be the paramount of the child.

Even if you believe in abortion, the hypocrisy of the left that now tried to kill this bill, that says that I should have never signed it, the true hypocrisy is that their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb. It doesn’t really matter, they don’t care if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong that a doctor can’t admit them to a local hospital, that he’s not even board certified. We passed that bill and I think you’ll see other states follow and when that happens at least these fly-in abortionists are going to be regulated under the state laws of the Medical Procedures Act here in the state of Mississippi as they should be across the nation.

Perkins: Well the driving factor is profit for many of them.

These people believe that our exceptional status is due to the fact that we have a special relationship with God: we reflect his divine laws in our own laws. As long as we continue to do so, we will be blessed.

That is where they see the threat in secularism. if we adopt laws that conflict with (their interpretation of) Divine Law, such as abortion, gay marriage, legalized prostitution/gambling/marijuana, then we will fall from favor with Goed and lose our exceptional status.

Supposedly, Bilderberg always chooses the Vice President. It was rumored that they were having a 'steering meeting' along side the recent Colombia meetings that Obama attended. When Bilderberg met in 2008 in Virginia, both Obama and Hillary went missing for awhile. It is believed they at the Bilderberg meeting. Obama's press secretary had to explain to a plane full of angry journalists why they were on a plane to Chicago but Obama was not coming to Chicago. LOL

Maybe we should have a contest. Y'know like get all the religions together and see who has the scariest Hell, the best Heaven, which followers have to pray the most, perform the strangest rituals, have the most complicated dietary restrictions, etc.

It can be followed by the clerical beauty pageant I mentioned a while back, where everyone votes on whose clergy members get to wear the most impressive outfit (that'll prolly go to the Catholics or one of the Orthodox churches).

Minn. Republican Party gets eviction notice

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota's debt-plagued Republican Party has been served with an eviction notice for its party headquarters after failing to pay its rent payments since August.

The party's landlord filed the notice last week in Ramsey County court and it is scheduled to be heard next Tuesday. Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Pat Shortridge told party members in a memo Thursday that officials are trying to renegotiate the lease to get one that better fits space and cost needs.

The GOP has 21 months remaining on a lease with Hub Properties Trust for space a block from the state Capitol. Shortridge revealed that the rent hadn't been paid in eight months.

The Minnesota GOP owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to various vendors.

The eviction notice was first reported by Politics in Minnesota.

Had a conversation a few years ago with a guy I know who's an engineer and a teacher. I don't recall exactly but he said something like that in engineering, you need a set amount of data points (32 sticks in my mind for some reason) before you can proceed on a project.

Half an hour later he's telling me how UFOs are actually time-travelling humans from a far-flung century, with all the conviction of an 8 year old who knows Santa's real because he met him at the mall.

Another friend of mine, one of the smartest people I know, is a quasi-truther; thinks we invaded Afghanistan to secure an oil pipeline, but dances around 9/11 when pushed. He's just asking questions, you know.

Rick Scarborough Claims Bart Simpson, Rachel Maddow and Brokeback Mountain are Signs of Our Culture's Decay

Vision America’s Rick Scarborough headlined Awakening 2012’s “Pastors, Churches and Political Activity: Re-energizing the Pulpit” panel, where he went on a tirade about all of the culture’s social “ills,” which include programs such as The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, The Rachel Maddow Show, and Beavis and Butt-Head (or as he puts it, “Beavis and Behind Head”) along with movies like Brokeback Mountain. He went on to blame the growth of such supposed evils on the end of unconstitutional public school-organized prayer and the teaching of evolution in schools, and noted that “sex-education has become nothing more than the facilitation of fornication, complete with home study with the teachers.”

YEAH! Sex Ed home study needs to go back to the days when it was done by priests!

God is outside the universe so is outside the need for causation.

Yet tell them the four fundamental forces and time did not exist before the BB, or that the negative energy of gravity added to all other energy equals zero, or that paired matter anti-matter pops in and out of the universe, apparently from nowhere and they reject it outright.

Not sure about lawsuits, but:

Camping admitted in a private interview that he no longer believed that anybody could know the time of the Rapture or the end of the world, in stark contrast to his previously staunch position on the subject. In March 2012, he stated that his attempt to predict a date was "sinful", and that his critics had been right in pointing to the scriptural text "of that day and hour knoweth no man". He added that he was now searching the Bible "even more fervently... not to find dates, but to be more faithful in our understanding."

In America which is Jesus’ country we can pray all we want for anything we want. you hung up on us and were rude to our leader. but will that stop us or Christ Jesus? No it will not and never could have, wicked Mickey. Our prayer circle has never failed to acheive our hosts granting of the scripture we pray. for direct intervention against you as you are a true demon to America. Luke 9:1 We will not stop our prayers until you stop the evil you do with Lucifer on a daly basis. Luke 9:1 But not against you Mickey. We know by your internet site and your book who it is to be. Now for our prayer, we pray that the women who work in your MFRR and the women in your family will befall fast moving breast cancer which can not everbe cured. We pray this for Leah Bruton, and Becki Miller, Patricia Corigan, Chris Rodda, Edie Disler, Vicky Garrison, Kristin Leslie, Melinda Moeton and Joan Slish. And you evil clan too, we pray this for Bonnie Wiensten and Amanda and Amber Wienstein and the woman lawyers Cariline Mitchel and Katherin Ritchy and all women of all who work at with for Military Freedom Against Religon Foundation. know that we pray and pray hard all the days until you stop your destruction of our American army and accept Christ Jesus as Lord and join His army.”

The Jehovah Witnesses in the same camps where largely ignored, but their hunger strike pictures came in handy of course. It was the conscientious objectors who were mainly in the camps and the Hitlers military was full of Jews.

You see, all those pictures of starving concentration camp victims were actually J.W.s who were skinny because of their voluntary hunger strikes, not Nazi mistreatment. Meanwhile all the Jews were actually serving in the German army under false identities or something...

One of the great conundrums of our time is that many conspiracy theorists are well-schooled in logic, clear thinking, and recognizing logical fallacies. There are many conspiracy theorists who are well-educated. Their blind spot, I believe, lies in their inability to fairly and impartially evaluate evidence that runs contrary to the particular conspiracy at hand.

I don't think it's fair to invalidate her opinion on women's issues just because she's a stay at home mom. Imagine if a man had said that Mrs Romney's opinions on working mothers was invalid because she was a stay at home mom. It would be terribly insulting. I'm sure Mrs Romney is a decent and intelligent person and her opinions are reasonably well informed and thought out.
I'm also fairly certain that she isn't Mitt's sole source of information about issues regarding working mothers so it's not really politically important. He said something nice about listening to his wife's advice, I don't think it's a big deal.

Nobody is doing that. They are invalidating her opinion, to a great extent, on the issue of women who have to work and be mothers. Because she never had to work and be a mother.

re: #187 windupbird is in the gravity well

Well, it can be valuable, if you put a lot of effort into empathetic understanding, to really put yourself in the other person's shoes and imagine what it must be like for them. That's one thing that I think really turns people off about Mitt Romney; he really seems to never be attempting to extend that empathy, to be making that effort. At best, he seems to puzzle his face while thinking hard about it and then coming to the conclusion that everything could best be solved by cutting back education budgets and deregulating the EPA.

189 allegro  Tue, Apr 24, 2012 4:23:16pm

It isn't about stay at home moms vs. working outside the home moms. It's about CHOICE. It's about resources and having fewer and fewer of those due to an ever growing income inequality and a quickly decreasing middle class with stagnating wages. It's about no longer being able to raise a family and survive on a single income. It's about not being able to get a college education without a lifetime of debt or afford that advantage for your kids. It's about having a basic understanding of these realities, especially for one who wishes to lead the country.

And it's damn important to women and their families.

Sure, she has an opinion but she shouldn't be his top adviser on all women's issues, as she has led a pretty different life than most average American women. She may not be in touch with struggling working moms/women. That is really all Rosen said, albeit awkwardly. OK?

Mitt Romney, on cusp of GOP nod, to tell voters: ‘A better America begins tonight’

And according to excerpts of an address he’s expected to deliver in New Hampshire this evening, Romney will drive home in the strongest language yet his general-election argument against President Obama.

“To all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight,” Romney is expected to say.

[...]

“Because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions and distortions,” Romney will say of Obama, according to the prepared remarks. “That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here, and not now. It’s still about the economy . . . and we’re not stupid.”

And in keeping with his campaign theme of “restoring America,” Romney will also pledge to return the country to an America that is “fundamentally fair.”

“We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends’ businesses; the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next,” he will say.

No to mention the unfairness of taking money from the rich, money which was their birthright after all.

If Romney will wants a better America, he can start here:


Rural Ky. town readies for private prison closure

After a sex scandal at a privately run prison in rural Kentucky, the state cut off the institution's funding and now it's shutting down — and that worries town officials in an impoverished Appalachian community where incarceration meant jobs and economic survival.

With Otter Creek Correctional Center set to close in the coming months, Mike Goeing, who runs Family Drugs of Wheelwright, sees pain ahead for his store and the other few remaining businesses in the town of about 1,200.

"It's definitely going to hurt," he said.

The prison, run by Nashville, Tenn.-based Corrections Corporation of America, is set to close by this summer as Kentucky pulls its inmates out of the facility that was at the center of a sex scandal. It broke in 2009 when inmates accused prison staff of forcing them to trade sexual favors for privileges.

The prison became a casualty of budget cuts and a renewed effort by the state to push more non-violent drug offenders into rehabilitation instead of incarceration.

[...]

People in Wheelwright are hoping for word that another state will step in with a new batch of inmates, reopen the facility and rehire the employees.

"There aren't a large number of businesses here anyway," Goeing told The Associated Press.

[...]

So, the poor people in rural KY would rather have their (allegedly) abusive locals back in the business of sex-slavery private prisons because minimum wage is so glorious.

What would Ann Romney the high paid lobbyists do?

Ah, yes. I see what you mean. I understood the intended meaning of work/employment immediately. It was obvious. However, I objected to the criticisms of how Mrs Romney lives her life and raises her kids. I don't think that's a helpful topic and is better left alone.

Again, at one level I'm not unsympathetic to your point here. Going after Romney's better half is useless, and the kind of tactic better left for the right wing.

That said, you seem to be deliberately avoiding how this has essentially been a trumped up issue for a very specific political purpose - to defend Romney's status with women voters.

The point that her "advice" should be viewed in the context of her life experiences is perfectly valid - and that is the point that was originally made; that is the point that has been demagogued by the rightwing, and you're being willfully oblivious to that.

Ala. Senate says no abortion in health exchange

The Alabama Senate has passed a bill to prohibit any insurance plan offered through a health insurance exchange in Alabama from offering coverage for elective abortions.

The bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Greg Reed of Jasper cleared the Senate 30-2 Tuesday and now goes to the House for consideration. Reed got a similar bill through the Senate last year, but it died in the House.

Reed said the federal health care law allows states to opt out of allowing abortion coverage in their insurance exchanges, which would include those purchasing federally subsidized plans and others.

States are supposed to have their exchanges set up by 2014.

A task force created by Gov. Robert Bentley has recommended how an exchange should be established, but the Legislature has not yet approved it.

Bryan Fischer Stumped: Unable To Explain How John Bolton ‘Did A Great Job’ With ‘Gay Activist’ By His Side

when CNN host Kyra Phillips pointed out that Grenell served at the pleasure of conservative Bolton, Fischer found himself in the awkward position of defending Bolton’s tenure while condemning his chief spokesperson:

PHILLIPS: Did you think John Bolton did a good job when he was U.S. ambassador to the U.N.? [...]

FISCHER: He did a great job.

PHILLIPS: Okay. Grenell was his spokesperson….Bryan, I just thought that was interesting, you thought Bolton did a great job, and Grenell was his spokesperson.

FISCHER: Well, the point here is that personnel is policy. Everybody in D.C. says that. Personnel is policy. When Governor Romney picks somebody who is an activist homosexual and puts him in a prominent position, he’s sending a shout out, it seems to me, to the homosexual lobby.

Heat wave shifts to central US -- drought-hit West Texas in the crosshairs

The heat wave that baked the Southwest the previous two days is shifting to the central U.S.

Starting Tuesday, highs will reach into the 80s from Texas all the way up to the border with Canada, weather.com reported.


"Over 30 locations may tie or set new daily record highs Tuesday in the Rockies and Plains," it added, and some areas as far north as Nebraska could reach into the 90s.
On Wednesday, West Texas will get blasted by triple-digit heat, forecasters said, worsening the prolonged drought that area has experienced. Midland will feel some of the worst of the heat.

"It looks like we're going to break the record" for an April 25, National Weather Service forecaster Jack Ciccone of the Midland office told msnbc.com. The forecast is for 101 degrees Fahrenheit, 3 degrees above the existing record set in 1996.

More Mexicans Are Now Leaving The U.S. Than Entering

Tighter borders and tougher immigrations law the cause? Not quite the case.

The report notes several factors that are likely behind the change including tighter borders, including a weakened U.S. economy and a rise in deportations. But most interesting are two factors that may indicate that the trend may be lasting. First, the birthrate in Mexico has dropped. Between 1960 and 2009, the average Mexican woman went from having nine children to just two. As such the Mexican population has dropped. Second, the Mexican economy has improved. With a relatively strong economy, there is less incentive for citizens to emigrate.

For years, the U.S. immigration debate has been built around an assumption that there are large numbers of Mexican nationals trying to move into the U.S. — legally and illegally. This report suggests that this assumption may need to be re-evaluated. As Princeton Professor Douglas Massey, who co-directs the Mexican Migration Project, told the Washington Post, “I think the massive boom in Mexican immigration is over and I don’t think it will ever return to the numbers we saw in the 1990s and 2000s.”

Well, this gets back to the topic of the thread, evolution.

Take, for example, this headline today from a story that's been buzzing around for a week:
Genetic Survey Shows Polar Bears Evolved Far Earlier Than Previously Recognized

Notice how VOA uses the past tense 'evolved'.

A Population of organisms is continually evolving, as long as it is reproducing.

In reality, Polar Bears are still evolving (and will probably be driven to extinction by you and me).

The genus Homo has had very many different populations that we now know have interbred.

In the world of systematic biology the "lumpers" vs. the "splitters" is a long battle. I remain perplexed why some people want to split species (a contentiously defined termed) of closely related populations that can interbreed, though I realize there are real differences between populations.

Anyway, getting to your question, AFAIK, no one places H. sapiens in Iberia at this time.

A skeptic is a critical thinker and he's no critical thinker. I wish there were fewer people in the Republican party like him right now. Out nation would be better off.
