Texas: Helping to Make This Nation a Laughingstock of the World Since 1846

This clown is the chairman of the Texas State Board of Education:
The chairman of the board, Dr. Don McLeroy, a dentist, pushed in 2003 for a more skeptical version of evolution to be presented in the state’s textbooks, but could not get a majority to vote with him. Dr. McLeroy has said he does not believe in Darwin’s theory and thinks that Earth’s appearance is a recent geologic event, thousands of years old, not 4.5 billion as scientists contend.
This know-nothing religious zealot is poised to force the textbook publishers to rewrite biology textbooks to make them conform with his ignorant beliefs, and of course, he has the support of a bunch of his intellectual equals in Texas.

This elevation of ideology over science and fact is a prime example of how this country got so fucked over for the past eight years. It also is further proof that the party of Hoover remains in thrall to these ignoramuses.

They are entitled to their beliefs. They are not entitled to their own set of facts. A boob who believes in the theology of the "young Earth" should not be having any input whatsoever on how science is taught to anyone other than those unfortunate children he may have sired. I presume that after these douchebags get done trying to obfuscate the Theory of Evolution, they are going to go after Copernicus and try to insert language to argue that the Universe is Earth-centric.

Shame on Texas for doing what it can to raise future generations of scientific illiterates. The textbook publishers should bite the bullet and make a "dumbass" edition of science textbooks for them (using really small words).

I recently met this boob at an education conference in Austin. The word mediocrity came to mind.

I'm afraid it isn't just Texan fundamentalism that's the problem, it's Texan culture as a whole.

I read this as either fools choose to follow him or translate intellectuals
to this Pseudo-intellectuals. They are proof that sentience is not a wide spread

If you meet and man beside the road who claims to be Budda, kill him.

Comrade Eck!
