America's Christian war against science education

This time the Christian war against reality is in Montana. I wrote a comment at a Montana news website which may or may not be published. Here it is:

Critics says bill allows creationism in schools

"Republican sponsor Clayton Fiscus of Billings says evolution isn't settled science. His bill would allow teachers _ if they want to _ to address weaknesses in evolution studies in the classroom."

As a very conservative Republican I'm a bit fed up with Republicans like Fiscus who disgrace conservatism. It's not conservative to be a science denier. It's not conservative to dumb down science education to accommodate religious fantasies.

Evolution is settled science. It's virtually impossible to find any biologist in the world who doesn't agree evolution is the strongest fact of science and the foundation of biology. It's impossible to properly teach biology without making evolution part of every single lesson.

The reason biologists have accepted evolution as fact for more than a century is the evidence, evidence that has become more powerful than Darwin could have ever imagined possible. Evidence Mr. Fiscus obviously knows nothing about.

Does evolution (the strongest fact of science) have weaknesses? No, of course not, for the same reason our planet's orbit around the sun has no weaknesses.

Mr. Fiscus wants to give incompetent science teachers the right to lie to their students about science. A better idea would be to immediately fire all science teachers who don't know anything about science. Firing all the evolution deniers would be a good place to start. It's not fair to students to get stuck with a know-nothing teacher who should have been fired a long time ago.

People who want to study the massive overwhelming evidence for evolution could try this: Type "darwin killed god" in the google search box then click the I'm Feeling Lucky button.


My 12 best posts about the evidence for evolution:

Bible thumping retard in Idiot Tennessee is a science denier. What a surprise!

A whole bunch of fucking evidence for evolution

Evidence for evolution you can see with your own eyes

Evolution deniers can't explain why their god fairy would use its magic wand to create the giraffe's laryngeal nerve 15 feet longer than necessary.

Science deniers, how do you explain Dorudon?

The Great Apes: chimps, people, gorillas, orangutans

Endogenous Retroviruses make Jeebus cry.

This is for the Christian assholes who say there are no transitional fossils.
