If you want Adam and Eve I want Cthulhu Mythos

Apparently just speaking against intelligent design in Texas will get you fired:
The state’s director of science curriculum has resigned after being accused of creating the appearance of bias against teaching intelligent design.

Comer was put on 30 days paid administrative leave shortly after she forwarded an e-mail in late October announcing a presentation being given by Barbara Forrest, author of “Inside Creationism’s Trojan Horse,” a book that says creationist politics are behind the movement to get intelligent design theory taught in public schools. Forrest was also a key witness in the Kitzmiller v. Dover case concerning the introduction of intelligent design in a Pennsylvania school district. Comer sent the e-mail to several individuals and a few online communities, saying, “FYI.”
So this lady was fired for announcing a presentation to her co-workers, one who apparently felt was not appropriate and got her fired. I think my favorite part of that post was the overlapping circles image from Saint Gasoline.

Folks do we really need to get into, again, why intelligent design has no business being taught in a SCIENCE class? There is ZERO evidence to support intelligent design, zero. Hell, intelligent design goes against the bible's own time table of the world only being about 10,000 years old. I'm sorry, freedom of religion does mean that you have the freedom to believe what you want. Some say it isn't a freedom from religion, but come on. The teaching of a religious theory in a science class in a public school to me constitutes an endorsement of religion by the government.

Without this entire Intelligent Design theory we wouldn't have the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I get that. But if you want to teach Intelligent Design, then include EVERY religious creation story out there. I want to hear how the Earth is actually the body of the giant Ymir, or how Zeus overcame his father and grew life on Earth, or how the Great Father of All spirits woke the Sun spirit and told her to wake the spirits on Earth.

Folks if you want Intelligent Design taught in a science class the ONLY way to allow it is to include each and every creation mythos known to man. Oh wait, that would take an entire school year, I guess it's time for a new elective.

Stubborn people dont want to be wrong, hence the existance of Intellegent design.

Hard to believe people would rather accept being brought to earth by aliens 1200 years ago rather than evolving from a monkey. I guess it makes sense, seeing how the southern morons who teach ID are the ones who claim to have been abducted by alients. Sheesh WWJD!!!????
