    There’s no point in trying to humiliate these folks. Just sit back and let them to that themselves. They never disappoint.

    It’s amazing that the issue before the board is no longer whether or not to teach creationism in public school. Instead, it’s about how evolution ought to be taught. That’s a pretty impressive victory for conservatives.Report

    Is it just me?

    I’m not sure what to criticize about Campbell’s questions, because I had not fishing idea what the hell she was trying to say. Seriously, I reread it twice and had no idea.

    I *think* she’s anti-eveolution? Maybe?Report

      Tod, here’s a quote that ought to clear things right up for you:

      to me obviously, if I was creating anything and had a good model like DNA, I’d use it. And just tweak it a bit, and have a monkey here and a fish here, whatever.

      Did that help?

      She’ anti-evolution.

      She thinks creationism is taught in TX schools and that the debate was over to include evolution.

      Campbell’s statement:
      “We don’t want to eliminate those things that you still do have to go on faith that are out there.”

      Obviously, I’m a Christian. I do believe in God as the creator of life …

      …where that falls in line to make sure we’re not just teaching that evolution is our only [and here she catches herself] —because we can measure—to me obviously, if I was creating anything and had a good model like DNA, I’d use it. And just tweak it a bit, and have a monkey here and a fish here, whatever.”

      This is the whole “intelligent design” dodge. Ruled unconstitutional, but they just keep coming back with it.

      The best ruling on the matter is probably the ruling in Kitzmiller v. Dover, which makes it plain why this sort of creationism with a bit of stage makeup slapped on is still creationism and still unconstitutional.Report
