This story quotes a warning on Alabama biology books as reading:
evolution is “a controversial theory. … Instructional material associated with controversy should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.”
It’s sad that they [the Xtian politicians] don’t treat their own beliefs and those of others with such open mindedness. Many people fail to realize that science is a learning PROCESS … gaps in the fossil record only mean that the fossils haven’t been found but will eventually be. I guess these people just need their beliefs force fed to them [and others!] without discovering something on their own.
Thankfully, the Church of Reality is here.
A new project came up at Duke, so now I’m stabily employed again. For a while.
