Breitbart Hack Milo Yiannopoulos Calls Bill Nye "Stupid"

Tue, Jan 19, 2016 at 2:19:29 pm
Today at Breitbart "News' we find self-hating malevolent misogynist weirdo Milo Yiannopoulos attacking Bill Nye, presumably because he's a strong advocate for science and against climate change denial, and anyone who writes for Breitbart has to be upset at people like this. It's their business model. Yiannopoulos titles his ridiculously dishonest ...

Hugh Hewitt: Republicans Will Face No Evolution Questions From Me

Sun, Mar 1, 2015 at 12:04:12 pm
You may have heard that one of the moderators for the Republican presidential debates will be right wing talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, which makes total sense from the GOP's point of view -- because he's guaranteed not to ask any questions that might be embarrassing. For example, whether ...

Creationists Get Influential Positions in Texas Science Textbook Review

Wed, Jul 31, 2013 at 6:39:58 pm
Remember the last time the religious right in Texas tried to sneak Christian creationism into public school science classes? Well, they're back. Actually, they never went away, and the Republican anti-science religious fanatics on the State Board of Education are making another big play to influence the textbooks that teach American ...

Turkey's State Science Council Halts Publication of Evolution Books

Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 4:35:23 pm
What might America look like if the Republican Party's anti-science agenda were enshrined into law? For an answer, let's look at Turkey, where religious fundamentalists in the government recently took a very dangerous, tragically misguided step, a step that many in the Republican Party would like to take in the US: ...

Rebuttal: Bobby Jindal's Risible Op-Ed for CNN

Thu, Nov 15, 2012 at 11:42:45 am
It's almost comical to see Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's efforts to position himself as the voice of reasonable conservatism. Remember, this is the Republican governor who's had more success than any other in sneaking creationism into public school science classes; make no mistake, Bobby Jindal is 100% in line with ...

GOP Tennessee Governor Haslam to Sign Anti-Evolution Bill

Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 11:07:41 am
Meanwhile in Tennessee, Republican Governor Bill Haslam has announced that he'll "probably" sign a right wing bill protecting teachers who tell their students that evolution and global warming are not real: Anti-Evolution 'Monkey Bill' Poised to Become Law in Tennessee. Although the bill is written to seem benign, as it ...

Florida GOP Senator Resurrects Failed 2009 Creationism Bill

Wed, Mar 16, 2011 at 12:54:09 pm
In March 2009, Florida Republican science denier Sen. Stephen Wise introduced an anti-evolution bill that quickly died in the legislature for lack of support. This year, though, after the influx of far right anti-science Tea Party candidates in 2010, Wise thinks his attempt to sneak creationism into public school science classes ...

California Science Center vs. The Creationist Lobby

Wed, Nov 17, 2010 at 5:37:53 pm
(Click to enlarge.)Here's an update to a story we covered last December, in which the creationist "think tank" called the Discovery Institute used a right wing front group to sneak a creationist film into the schedule of the California Science Center -- and then the front group promptly sued when ...

Christine O'Donnell Wants To Teach Creationism As 'An Equal Theory' to Evolution

Thu, Oct 14, 2010 at 3:43:49 pm
Following the debate between Christine O'Donnell and Chris Coons, a lot of people are focusing on O'Donnell's Palinesque inability to name a single Supreme Court decision with which she disagreed. (That lack of knowledge doesn't stop her from bashing the Supreme Court's rulings, of course.) But I happened to be out ...

In Louisiana, where Republican governor Bobby Jindal signed into law a stealth creationist bill (disguised as "academic freedom") crafted by the Discovery Institute, religious fanatics are getting eager to start pushing the envelope. The Advocate has a report on the Livingston Parish School Board, where the creationists are going to ...

Klinghoffer Is Embarrassed by All The Craziness

Sun, Aug 1, 2010 at 7:08:34 pm
The Discovery Institute's David Klinghoffer says it's embarrassing to be a conservative, and he should know -- as one of the most embarrassing public examples of conservative anti-science creationist bad craziness on the Internet. Klinghoffer titles this one: "From neocons to crazy-cons." I shudder to think what he considers "crazy."

Creationism at the Huffington Post

Sat, Jul 3, 2010 at 10:56:57 am
The Huffington Post has always been friendly toward “new age” quack medicine, but I have to admit I was a little surprised to see them actually publishing the work of Discovery Institute shill David Klinghoffer: David Klinghoffer: The Dark Side of Darwinism. If you’ve ever read an article by this clown, ...

Rick Santorum: Obama is 'Detached From the American Experience'

Mon, Jun 28, 2010 at 2:51:23 pm
Former Senator Rick Santorum gave an interview to the Iowa Republican blog last Friday, and said the reason why President Obama “doesn’t connect” with ordinary Americans is that he isn’t really an American. Obama is detached form the American experience.  He just doesn’t identify with the average American because of ...

Mark Souder: Creationist Activist on Capitol Hill

Tue, May 18, 2010 at 3:20:16 pm
An interesting footnote to the Mark Souder scandal: he was also one of the main promoters of creationism (in its “intelligent design” disguise) on Capitol Hill. I was going to post the following video of Souder being “interviewed” by his mistress Tracy Jackson, about the very influential role he played in ...
