Texas Education Board Chair Wants Schools to Teach “Another Side” to Evolution

Republicans never stop trying to sneak creationism into schools via deception
Wingnuts • Views: 22,942

The woman Governor Rick Perry personally chose to chair the Texas State Board of Education, Barbara Cargill, is a creationist.

Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is what Republicans will do every time they get the chance.

The Texas Freedom Network is keeping an eye on these religious fanatics, and they’ve posted a video of Cargill speaking at a Senate Education Committee hearing in Austin, complaining that the curriculum used by Texas school districts doesn’t “teach the controversy” about the theory of evolution.

There is no controversy about the theory of evolution, of course. That’s how these throwbacks continually try to hoodwink people, by sounding as if they’re concerned about giving kids a good education — when in reality, they’re trying to instill mindless reactionary ignorance in children, to match their own benighted brains.

They cannot openly call Obama a n**** so they take every chance they git to call attention to his race in a disparaging manner

They cannot openly call for the teaching of Creationism in schools, but they take every chance they get to advance their beliefs in the form of “Intelligent Design”.

They cannot win national elections anymore so they take every chance they get to disenfranchise minority voters and gerrymander the rest out of power.

Dear Nutters,

The wonderful thing about science is that it doesn’t matter if you believe in it or not. It’s still true either way.

Also, evolution is not up for debate. It’s real. It’s happening all around us.

Deal. With. It.

No love,
Me

On one side, we have a mass consensus based on decades worth of scientific data from experts around the world which is constantly being refined.

The other side to it being fucking magic based on 2000+ year old folklore from one geographic region.

All those for allowing Texas schools to teach the controversy and demand that they include Cthulhu, the Lost Colonies mythos from Battlestar Galactica (some believe that life here, began out there), and Norse, Shinto, and Hindu mythos, say aye?

/////

It isn’t a controversy if you’re going to exclude all the other “theories” about the creation of the universe, of which the Christian creationist view is but one.

Oh wait, you mean you are going to exclude everything but the Christian creationist view? On what grounds. I demand that they teach the controversy! /

Every link, every lesson, everything, you know, was taught as ‘this is how the origin of life happened, this is what the fossil record proves,’ and all that’s fine, but that’s only one side.”

We want the side with no fossil record and no proof, to be taught too.

10 Locker  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 10:48:42am

I like how she finishes by saying “That’s only one side” after claiming that she can’t find any other side. Sounds to me like evolution is a ball. No sides!

11 jaunte  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 10:49:15am

From TFN release:

Cargill went on to say she wants CSCOPE and textbook publishers to “soften” their language on evolution. Curriculum standards adopted in 2009 require students to examine “all sides of scientific evidence” of scientific explanations, such as evolution. This year the SBOE is scheduled to adopt new science textbooks based on those standards. Schools will begin using the textbooks in 2014.

Cargill’s comments suggest that the SBOE is about to embark on a rehashing of the culture war battles over evolution and other topics that kept the last two Perry-appointed SBOE chairs, Don McLeroy and Gail Lowe, from being confirmed by the Texas Senate, Miller said. Cargill’s first appointment as chair came after the 2011 legislative session. The Senate has not confirmed one of Gov. Perry’s nominees for SBOE chair since 2005.

Miller pointed out that the science standards refer to “all sides of scientific evidence,” not simply “all sides.”

It’s never about actually teaching Creationism. I’m sure these kids get enough of that bullshit at home and in Church (sorry if I offend, but that’s me). It’s all about one thing: The War on Knowledge. Keeping people ignorant about life is the best way to control them, and the best way to start that is by not allowing children to learn anything outside the scope of what you want. Because if they learned about evolution and started questioning the Creationist bullshit, they might start questioning everything else they see and hear.

Can’t have that. They don’t want their children to learn anything that might make them think for themselves. It’s almost as if these people know what they’re pushing is bullshit and know the children would revolt and reject them if they actually learned anything. Pathetic people. These people are the precursor to that documentary “Idiocracy.” Hopefully the rest of us are smart enough to change history to avoid the outcomes in that movie.

Privatization Group Tied To California Dark Money Millions

An engineering trade organization that advocates for privatizing government work has been tied to the group behind the $11 million dark money donation that prompted a legal showdown in California last fall.

The $400,000 that can now be traced back to a group called the American Council of Engineering Companies in California (ACEC-CA) may not be the biggest of disclosures, but when it comes to dark money in politics, any transparency at all is a revelation.

Campaign finance reports released last week in California show that the Sacramento, Calif.-based ACEC-CA wrote two checks to the conservative group Americans for Job Security in 2012, one in July for $150,000 and one in September for $250,000, which were described in disclosures to California’s Secretary of State as intended for “issue advocacy.”

The real threat in Texas is the creeping humanist-socialist-Marxist-Islamist:

Subject: Letter Of Request To All Christians In Texas

On November 15, 2012 at 2:00 p. m. many teachers, parents, and community leaders will go to Austin, Texas to speak before the State Board of Education. Their goal is to expose the true intent of a program called C-SCOPE. This program is currently being used in over 2/3rd of the schools in Texas. It is based on humanistic, socialistic, and Marxist philosophy and ideology. This program pushes students to question authority as well as a clear definition of what is right and what is wrong. Actual lessons are obviously anti-Christian and pro-Islamic. Parents are isolated from the true intent of this program because textbooks have been eliminated.

Barbara Cargill is a young-earth creationist, and was former Texas SBoE head Don McLeroy’s second-in-command, and wrote many of the rules he attempted to push through. One of her main sources of information? Fully discredited “historian” David Barton.

Her website calls for science classes that “treat Evolution as a theory, not a fact”.

Evolution is a theory, and should be properly taught as such. A scientific theory, one which is supported by countless facts from nearly every branch of science.

As opposed to Intelligent Design, which is supported by words written down by some old Jewish guy 4000 years ago.

Yes. We look around at the world around us and take measurements and make observations in order to determine what things are and how they interact. We postulate theories based on those observations and measurements, then test them to see if they hold up. If you make predictions in a careful and repeatable way and those predictions are always correct, your theory is sound.

This is how thinking people come to an understanding of the world around them.

There’s no evidence in the world around us to suggest that the Biblical story of creation is correct. And that’s what it is, a story. It does not and cannot make predictions about what happens with a pre-existing set of conditions, and so does not belong in a discussion on science.

During last year’s snow season, defined as July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012, Anchorage had 134.5 inches of snow, according to Jake Crouch, a climate scientist with the National Climatic Data Center. This season’s tally in Anchorage was 39.2 inches, through Wednesday. North of Fairbanks, another area where mushers train, snowpack is 21 percent of average.

“This is a pretty big deal,” said Crouch, who is among the climate experts who attribute the conditions to global warming. He said climate change had resulted in warmer temperatures for Alaska over the last century.

“One of the things we’re seeing with climate change is that the high latitudes are experiencing the brunt of it,” he said. “They’re very vulnerable.”

It’s proof of many things. Such as that the Earth is not 6,000 years old, that not all fossils were created at the same time, that various forms of “proof” over the ages of Biblical stories have been proven BS, and so forth.

And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. … But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die.

Various creation myths from around the world, in (sigh) Flash animation.

Designed for ages 10-14.

How do people from different cultures view themselves, the world and their origins?
The Big Myth is a new experimental learning module designed for use in European primary school classrooms. It is a sociology textbook for the comparative study of world creation mythology. The myths are told using Flash animation and are accompanied by an overview of the culture, the pantheon of the gods and a series of exercises based on that culture. The Big Myth combines the internet and Flash animation as a presentational medium with a highly progressive group learning method known as complex instruction. Teachers are advised to start in the teacher’s section for more complete instructions. The Big Myth consists of the Mythology section, Links and Bibliography for further research, a Write Your Own Creation Myth section for students, the Teacher’s Guide and a Discussion Forum where an off-line debate is held over the material.

So, that’s how Europeans teach the controversy. Those poor, backward, stuck-in-the-dark-ages Europeans.

If you read the Bible, it is full of stories of the Creation. Handed down by Adam and Eve and told to future generations. Of course, you have to believe in and accept that the Bible was inspired by the Divine Spirit for this to be true. And in this nation, up until the last 20 years, anyway, this was the predominant belief. Now a largely amoral segment of society washes it’s hands of God, calls their beliefs “science” and rams it down the throats of school children. No questions asked.

in the very first few pages of genesis, there are actually two contradictory stories of creation

this fact is covered in every modern commentary, and is the first piece of evidence in the so called “documentary hypothesis”

which one do you believe?

That is weather, not climate. That water which is supposed to be snow in Alaska didn’t magically disappear. Its in the atmosphere as water vapor until it condenses and comes down as snow or rain depending on local conditions. Where do you think all the increased snow and rain fall in regions which havent had bad storms for decades is coming from? Or is it all tears from Baby Jesus?

True story…I listened to a little actually say that’s where rain comes from in my daughter’s first grade class. The teacher then called on my daughter who was able to correctly explain rain. Proud mommy moment.

You know how it goes, they say “all sides,” but as soon as you bring non-Christian beliefs into the classroom, they haul out the fainting couches and get the vapors over the idea that “heathen” religion is being taught to their children as “fact.”

Which really just goes to show their hypocrisy doesn’t it? I’d be willing to bet that few of the “teach the controversy” people really want to teach the controversy, and that most of them only claim they want to, because they know at the moment, at least they won’t be able to get away with outright banning evolution, like they once did. Most of them would probably love nothing more than to go back to days right after the scopes monkey trial, where most text book publishers were too scared to include anything on evolution, and teaching it in public schools was illegal in many parts of the US.

That’s why the “scientists” have gone from calling it “global warming” to “climate change”. No matter if it’s hot or cold out their “science” is correct!

Not even close.

The use of ‘Climate Change’ predates the use of “Global Warming’ by several years in peer reviewed articles. Scientists have used both while speaking to the public since the late 70s. The name IPCC which was formed in 1988 has the phrase Climate Change in it.

The common use of global warming changed after a man by the name of Frank Luntz sent out a memo to the Republican administration in 2003 advising them to change global warming to climate change when speaking in public.

Called Intimacy — from designer Daan Roosegaarde, founder of Studio Roosegaarde — the project aims to explore the relationship between technology and the body’s interactions. The dresses, which are called ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black,’ are made out of opaque smart e-foils. When the body gets excited and the heart races, the coils turn clear.

Religious Right’s Last Stand to Block Chuck Hagel

While it is becoming extremely unlikely that the GOP will be able to muster enough votes to filibuster Chuck Hagel’s nomination as defense secretary, Religious Right groups and their Republican allies continue to make new and more over-the-top overtures to activists hoping to block his confirmation.

For example, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) told Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council that “we can’t afford to allow someone who has been that cozy with the terrorist groups that are out there to become Secretary of Defense.”

Inhofe went on to say that Hagel wants to “disarm us” and shows “hostility” toward the U.S. and Israel. Inhofe also cited Sen. Ted Cruz’s questioning of Hagel where he egregiously misrepresented the nominee’s speeches and interview with Al-Jazeera.

Weather not climate.

Weather like dropping a ball bearing from a height - you can calculate an approximate area where it should land but you can’t be certain of the exact spot.

Climate is like dropping a 1000 ball bearings one at a time from the same height and calculating an area where the vast majority will land.

If you read the Bible, it is full of stories of the Creation. Handed down by Adam and Eve and told to future generations. Of course, you have to believe in and accept that the Bible was inspired by the Divine Spirit for this to be true. And in this nation, up until the last 20 years, anyway, this was the predominant belief. Now a largely amoral segment of society washes it’s hands of God, calls their beliefs “science” and rams it down the throats of school children. No questions asked.

re: #349 lawhawk

I joined way back before registration, and am part of the original class of registrants (class of 2004), most of which have since washed out for going off the deep end with either ODS, birtherism, racism/xenophobia, or combination of all the above. I’ve stuck around because Charles has remained true to his principles and hasn’t backed down all while not tolerating craziness in the comments. That’s most respectable in my opinion.

I joined in 2007, about the time that LGF started turning a new leaf.

It says his agent wrote it, but I want to hear if you think that Obama never, in 16 years , read his own bio from his book publisher. And if he did (and he must have) why did he not correct it?

So what if he did? Are you suggesting that you can divine from his ignoring it the truth of the claim?

If so, you don’t have a good grasp of ‘evidence’ in the scientific sense.

Obama is sneaky and unfair and doesn’t face people valiantly in single combat, therefore according to the magna carta he actually is chattel and as such, I’m not paying any more taxes on my guns which you should keep your hands off of while I exercise my right to free speech at 10,000 decibels nightly.

Why would he even continue to indicate that he was born in Hawaii in his college applications? Why would he write Dreams of my Father which indicate he was born in Hawaii? You’re basing some grand conspiracy on one literary agent brochure which shows him as being born in Kenya while all along everything else shows Hawaii.

Keyes: Gun Control Is Part of a Plan to Kill Hundreds of Thousands

Alan Keyes may no longer be the Religious Right superstar he once was, but rest assured, he is still active and remains just as erudite and unhinged as always. Appearing recently via webcam on something called “The Talk to Solomon Show,” Keyes declared that everyone knows that our society is on the verge of slipping into lawless chaos and it is therefore “insane” for anyone to be promoting any sort of gun control efforts at this time.

In fact, said Keyes, any government official who supports gun control is doing so because they want average citizens to be rendered defenseless against the “criminals and psychotic folks” who are going to running wild in the anarchy to come because it serves the larger goal of curbing the global population and the effort is “intended to make sure that people will be slaughtered by the thousands and the hundreds of thousands”:

Alabama lawmaker pushing ‘personhood’ because ‘aborted babies’ might go to Hell

A Republican lawmaker in Alabama says that he wants to pursue a so-called “personhood” bill outlawing abortion rights for women because the Bible proves that a fetus “is life inside of a mother,” but he’s not sure if “aborted babies” are going to Heaven or Hell.

In a recent interview with the Times-Journal, state Sen. Shadrack McGill lamented that “you can be charged up to $250,000 for destroying an eagle egg, but you can destroy babies in the womb?”

McGill explained that his interpretation of Psalm 22 made it clear that life began at fertilization.

“Just based on the Scripture alone, the Psalm that talks about God knowing us before he placed us in our mother’s womb, is enough for me to know that that is a life inside of a mother,” he said.

“So my question concerning aborted babies is, where do they go, heaven or hell?”

Whoops. Woman shot in back, and friends conspire to claim a Hispanic guy did it to cover up that they accidentally shot her instead.

San Antonio police say a woman was accidentally shot in the back late Tuesday night. However, detectives say her friends concocted a robbery story to shift the blame.
The shooting happened in the 15000 block of Chase Hill Blvd. inside of a car just before midnight.

Investigators say three men and two women went to pick up a gun. A 19-year-old man, whose identity has not been released, was reportedly handling the gun recklessly when the gun accidentally went off.
A woman in her 20s was shot in the lower back. The victim was taken to University Hospital where she is listed in stable condition.
Investigators say some of the remaining members of the group suggested to police that a Hispanic male jumped in their backseat and tried to rob them. Officers looked for the fictitious suspect with no luck.
Meantime, officers believe the gun was hidden. After several hours of being questioned, police say they developed information the robbery suspect was not real and that the shooting actually happened among the friends.

A boy and a girl were found dead in the home in the 4900 block of Pearl Street when police arrived, along with Mayra. Tony Nunez, Mayra’s older brother, spoke to 9NEWS.

So. In addition to being a know-it-all, you are a mind reader that can put words in other people’s mouths. Maybe it’s you with the problem, honey

Son of a bitch, this is freaky. Right when you posted that, I was having difficulty opening a jar of honey. Swear to god. It was all crystalized.

I finally got it off though, don’t worry. A little hot water fixed it up!

I would suggest one change to the design: make the containers non-transparent. Light exposure speeds up the breakdown and/or spoiling of the essential oils that provide flavor.

If/when I get around to it, I may just use small amounts in the containers with transparent lids and then store the bulk properly. Part of the fun for me is seeing the different spices and herbs.

Alabama lawmaker pushing ‘personhood’ because ‘aborted babies’ might go to Hell

“Just based on the Scripture alone, the Psalm that talks about God knowing us before he placed us in our mother’s womb, is enough for me to know that that is a life inside of a mother,” he said.

Okay, let me see if I’m understanding this here:

1. God knows us before we are born.
2. Sends our soul to some woman, who
3. Has an abortion,
4. Thus condemning us to hell?

You’d think God could just eliminate the middleman and send us all to hell without all that waiting time.

[I]f devotion to truth is the hallmark of morality, then there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking….

[snip]

This is the doctrine that pushed me to no longer being a Christian. They believe that the only way to get to heaven is to accept god as Jesus as their savior. This God, who is all powerful, all knowing, forgiving, and loving will condemn those who never had a chance to find out about him - will do nothing in His power to ensure that unborn or newly born, much less those in remote corners of the world He created, have any chance at all to get into heaven but are instead condemned to eternal torment.

Depending on your interpretation, the same applies most if not all the millions of souls who died before Christ’s birth.

I find myself boggled at the impotence and immaturity these Christians ascribe to their God.

You’ve been wanting a rebuttal or comment. How about this from Jason Pinter at Huffington Post? It gives several reasons why the document might have had the error and not been updated. Not least was the fact that Obama changed literary agents midstream.

It also points out the difficulty a no-namer (Obama, 1991) might have in getting an in-industry brochure of which he’s one of 90 authors presented changed. 1991 is pre-internet as we know it, and certainly before print-on-demand. Professional brochures are done with off-set printing. Changes are EXPENSIVE, and not going to be done unless it’s going to be more expensive to leave the error in place. As far as I know nobody has looked for any errata sheet(s).

on Paul Harvey’s Triumph - Rich Lowry - National Review Online yesterday

Most rural youth already get it. Not all kids grows up like the “urban” youth, you know

re: #590 Gus

I wonder if this is him. If so, then he’s just a snot-nosed teenybopper begging for attention from the grown-ups. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s related to the other Witkop on his Twitter list since they’re following each other.

Regarding the elder Witkop (last section on page):

MINISTRY

‘Take One Service…’

Philip Witkop sometimes gives his patients an unusual prescription—churchgoing. The Litchfield, Ill., doctor has no problem mixing medicine and ministry because as well as being part of a local family practice, he is an ordained Lutheran clergyman.

“My job as a doctor is to remind people of all aspects of health,” he says. “If they’re not getting interaction, I might suggest [they join a church]. We tend to compartmentalize too many things. To me, everything overlaps more than people give credit to. I don’t proselytize. But if I see people looking for meaning in their lives, I have no problem inviting them to join a church.”
