Dan Donovan mentioned this bill from the Washington Senate in his weblog, and I wanted to mention it too. Dan's right: It's disgusting. If you want your children to believe in God and creation, that's fine, teach them that at home, or in private school. But children of many different religions, including no religion at all, go to public school. They should not be subjected to creationism, nor should they be kept from learning about evolution. It's science class, teach them about the science (not theory) of evolution. There is no place in public school for creation. The most that science teachers should do in regard to creation is tell students to talk to their parents about it.

My favorite line is when they talk about "the Supreme Ruler of the Universe" I haven't heard that saying since I was 7.

I heard it last week in a Ronnie James Dio song, but I don't think he was talking about the same being.

This got mentioned in an entry from a few hours ago, but I'm giving it an entry all its own: In your opinion, does "gamer" mean a person who plays video games (XBox, PS2, Gamecube), a person who plays computer games, or a person who plays pen-and-pencil r Go »
