Darwin was a liberal, communist, liar!
The title had me at “hello!”
How a group of Texas conservatives is rewriting your kids’ textbooks.”
What I read made me want to cry and cuss.
Two quotes from the article, just to wet your appetite, are:
“…but we are a Christian nation founded on Christian principles. The way I evaluate history textbooks is first I see how they cover Christianity and Israel. Then I see how they treat Ronald Reagan—he needs to get credit for saving the world from communism and for the good economy over the last twenty years because he lowered taxes.”
“This critical-thinking stuff is gobbledygook.”
The preceding nuggets of intellectual wisdom were from a man who actually selects textbooks for the state of Texas and a man who represents the “think tank” that influences the people who select the text books for the state of Texas. (I don’t feel an additional comment is needed due to the weight of that sentence.)
Go and read it for yourself.
Be sure to comment on this, dear readers. I can’t wait to read how you feel about this one.

Silly me! And all this time I thought we were a country founded on religious freedom!
ah thanks, I love reading those folks ideas, and I’m so glad they’re trying to force them on me, my children. I guess they’ll have a way for me to explain to my kids why we have an appendix, a tailbone, etc. Plus those million year old rocks scientists find, I’m sure they can expalin (instead of explain…get it?) that to us. Really, if you like religion, go be religious, don’t try force this crap on everyone else…I don’t go to their house and tell them that there is no God and they should just get over it already. Hey, speaking of, slavery was OK back then, so perhaps that should be reconsidered, yeah, makes about as much sense doesn’t it?
@Suzy – the country was founded when people left England so they could do what they wanted to, “religious freedom” is an oxymoron anyway.
Lol tard you are trying to force evolution on everyone. Evolution hasn’t been proven and is nothing but a religion i.e. you believe in it without proof. Yet its ok to force everyone to learn it in school. Ok hypocrite. Your appendix filters poisons, your tailbone holds 4 muscles that allow you to poop. Go google these things they are not vestigial organs they have a purpose. You can live without an arm does that mean you don’t need it? Evolutionists teach these lies that go against medical facts. Those million year old rocks? Uh who do you think makes the computer program that says how old the rocks are? These same scientists have been proven wrong. They have identified living molluscs as millions of years old when we know they were only a few years old. Their dating system doesn’t work. They assume the dates of a rock then write the program to fit those dates. If i make a program where 2 + 2 = 5 all the calculations it comes out with will be wrong. Same with their dating methods. Thats why over the last 100 years they’ve changed the way they date things and the age of the earth. If it was accurate they wouldn’t have to change it. Yet even though their dating methods were proven wrong by their own scientists they still teach the dates they came up with as fact. Talk about teaching a lie.
You should actually go study what you believe in before you try to argue in a form. I know both sides of the argument and I can tear evolution apart with facts.
I believe your anger and “tard” comment are misplaced. I simply state that I disagree with the article – that I provide a link to. If you believe in evolution or not – critical thinking should not be classed as “gobbledygook.”
“critical-thinking stuff is gobbledgook”
yes of course i like to run through the woods with a blindfold on. i encourage everyone to run head-forward into monsterous 100 year old trees. why take inventory of the present when you can knock yourself stupid with the past.
Critical thinking makes my head hurt in a literal interpretation ,baptist kind-of way. Should I post more from the likes of Don McElroy so you can see how deep his deranged rabbit hole goes?
– i love the simplicity of a good black and white image. and in this piraacultr shot, i really love how the lens blur at the edges of the image makes the trees in the foreground look as if they are in motion
Liar, liar, pants on fire, DARWIN! WHAT GIVES HUMANS THE RIGHT TO CLAIM THEY KNOW ABOUT HOW THE WORLD BEGAN, HOW LIVING THINGS CAME TO BE & WHEN THE WORLD ENDS?!!!!!!!!!! GOD GAVE NO SPECIFIC TIME WHEN EARTH ENDS! I did read something from the bible, “The wise may claim to know…” I FIGURED IT OUT! ITS A WARNING OF WHAT LIES THE WISE (i think he meant scientists & phylosophers) ARE TELLING US!!!
