Blog on the Run: Reloaded

First we flood them out. Then we make them stupid.

The Louisiana House has voted 94-3 — 94 to 3!! — for a bill that apparently would allow the teaching of creationism in science classes.

Creationism isn’t science. “Creation science” isn’t science. And as much as the pro-creationist liars would like you to believe otherwise, there is no controversy within the scientific community about evolution.

Evolution is a theory as “theory” is defined in science, where “theory” is a term of art meaning a hypothesis that has been tested repeatedly and can be used to predict certain outcomes. Saying that evolution is wrong is like saying germ theory is wrong, or the theory of gravity.

This bill, if enacted, will be a crime committed against the children of Louisiana, who, frankly, have more than enough on their plates as it is.
