I refuse to ever teach ID or Creationism in any class involving geology, biology or other natural science.

The “Missouri Standard Science Act” is of course not standard science at all. If it was then they would have to wait for cdesign proponentsists to come up with a theory that encompasses all known data, is falsifiable, and has predictive power. But of course it would be incorporated into science class without some government dictate at that point.

Of course the real purpose of the bill is a thinly veiled promotion of religion by members of government. They want to simultaneously reduce children’s exposure to ideas that disprove certain religious principles and increase their exposure to ideas that promote those principles.

Don’t these morons remember Kitzmiller v. Dover? Not Constitutional.

There is no “theory” of ID. There isn’t even a hypothesis. This is pure madness, something I’d expect to see enacted in a country run by the Taliban.

The last time a Western country tried something like this was in 1930s Germany, when physics and math were considered too Jewish and were replaced with German Physics and German Math. History shows that that didn’t work out so well for the Master Race.

Then after we teach how God created everything we can graduate to killing one another over which “God” actually did it. Wait. We’re doing that now. Oh I get it. We will then have God on our side and the other God will be a false God. We have always been at was with Eastasia. Simple.

” I think the world needs to wake up from its long nightmare of religious belief; and anything that we scientists can do to weaken the hold of religion should be done, and may in fact be our greatest contribution to civilization.”

-Steven Weinberg

Here is an interesting article on one of Tail Gunner Joe's sick witch hunts that has, unfortunately, been forgotten. I try not to feel schadenfreude of the fate of McCarthy's side kick, Ray Cohn, but I never succeed.
