Texas Board Of Education Unanimously Rejects Creationist Textbooks

creationism-4In a shocking turn of events, creationism’s great white hope, Texas, has decided to continue teaching basic biology and natural history in its public school system. The National Center for Science Education writes:

The Texas Board of Education has unanimously come down on the side of evolution. In 14-0 vote, the board today approved scientifically accurate high school biology textbook supplements from established mainstream publishers–and did not approve the creationist-backed supplements from International Databases, LLC.

Dr. Eugenie Scott, NCSE’s Executive Director is celebrating the decision. “These supplements reflect the overwhelming scientific consensus that evolution is the core of modern biology, and is a central and vital concept in any biology class. That these supplements were adopted unanimously reflects a long overdue change in the board. I commend the board for its refusal to politicize science education.”

    I’m amazed!  Texas (my home state) finally made an intelligent decision about something.  Good job Texas!
    Far too many of my fellow Texans are religious “fundie” idiots that want to impose their morals and beliefs upon everyone else and sit around with their heads up their asses watching (and believing) FOX ‘News’ Channel. I’m glad to see that the Board of Education has shown some good judgement.

    Let’s hope that the teachers will follow through and teach evolution without a wink-wink to the students.

    Well, I’m not really shocked, there’s simply no way they could have done otherwise.  But do keep in mind that this same state’s Board of Education also went through text books deleting any information that they claimed had a “liberal bias”, such as contributions to our nation made by Thomas Jefferson, anyone of Latin descent, and anything that hints that black music is actually a part of American culture.

    Why does the liberal left proclaim that they are the only intelligent beings out there….. to suggest that Christians are idiots because of their faith is about as idiotic as one can get.

    I don’t make fun of your beliefs, such as they are, why is it ok to be derisive of Christians?

    Suggesting that ‘scientifically accurate’ evolutionism must, by definition, exclude the concept of divine creation is actually fundamentally moronic.
