Ok, stumbled onto this as I was trying to relax and get to sleep, but it’s too stupid to pass up.
The legislators in Florida are trying to pass a bill intended to allow students to sue professors who claim Evolution is real.
Read it here.
The absolute best part of the article is this:
“Students who believe their professor is singling them out for “public ridicule” – for instance, when professors use the Socratic method to force students to explain their theories in class – would also be given the right to sue.”
Ok. I’m all for people believing whatever they want. BUT, and this is a HUGE BUT, if you are claiming your beliefs are a valid scientific theory (Creationism) your better be willing to argue it as such. You cannot claim your belief is a real theory and then when asked about it say “I don’t have to prove it, or debate it, it’s a religious thing.”
Stuff like this seems to be happening every day. The religious zealots in the Republican party have taken their new-found power and are going full tilt now. I’m actually more worried about the future of the US now than I have been in a long time. Did you know that IMAX theaters are now censoring out movies who put forward scientific facts that may agitate religious zealots? It’s not just the volcano movie mentioned in the article. There were 2 others, including one about space exploration.
