  1. republicans in kentucky are upset that their students have to have a knowledge of biological evolution before they can be accepted in college. they want that requirement dropped so students from kentucky can be accepted with "god did it" as their educational background in biology:

    Kentucky Evolution Fight: GOP Lawmakers Upset State Exams Test Students On 'Made Up' Theory
    A group of Kentucky Republicans is up in arms over a state testing program that requires high school students preparing for college to have an understanding of biological evolution.

    When the Republican state legislature voted in 2009 to link Kentucky's testing system to national education standards, it opened the door for biology exams that would test students' proficiency in the field of evolution. State Rep. Carl Rollins, a Democrat, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that this was standard practice, as ACT, the company that coordinates Kentucky's testing program, developed the material by surveying biology teachers across the country on which studies they believed should be included. They responded, rather unsurprisingly, that biological evolution was an important concept for incoming college students to grasp.

    But state Republicans are now recoiling at their decision. They claim it doesn't give the theory of creationism a fair shake and places undue emphasis on the teaching of evolution, which they maintain exists only as a "theory."

  2. Biologicial evolution has absolutely no importance. No scientific benefits have ever come from believing we came from monkeys.

    Just shows what you can believe when you dont use REAL science to back up your claims and evolution doesnt use real science.

    peilthetraveler, not even Freethinker gets his knowledge of evolution from Spielberg movies. Maybe you should be reading the right books, instead of trying to learn about evolution from movies targeted to 12 year old boys.
     
  4. Oh wow, thanks for laugh peil. Very good.

    You ARE kidding right?



    Everyone knows Jesus rode a unicorn.
     
  5. Rumor has it he rode a democrat.
     
  6. In your opinion what are the "right" books? Are they the books written by the supposed geniuses of the 20th century? The people that say God doesnt exist? Geniuses like Hawking? Remember his black hole theory. Most people fell for that for a few decades didnt they?

    What do you want to tell us with that? Not only evolution, but also black hole theory is a conspiration by those evil 20th century scientists?

    People with more than one account on an internet forum are not to be taken seriously.
    A person with more than one account on an internet forum said, "one and one are two".
    Therefore "one and one are two" is not to be taken seriously?

    Hi intradaybill - or should I say Michael? - I read in another thread that you go also by the name Jason Edwards. So we're not going to take your opinion seriously, right? :)
