Texas-sized Textbook Battle About to Begin

Spread the love

According to this story from Fox News a huge battle about changes in public school curriculum is looming in the Lone Star State and will have major ramifications for textbooks around the U.S. Fox reporter Brent Baier will be airing a report on the 6pm news tonight on Fox as well. The story includes a video with Shannon Bream interviewing a panel of parents on the issue as well. The first parent (I believe her name is Hannah) got it exactly right when she referred to evolution as an hypothesis and that children should learn that scientists work to prove or disprove an hypothesis.

It’ll be interesting to see the reaction of the Darwinists to this story.

    agreed DonaldM. Let’s see them prove that hypothesis first. Also, it would be nice if the textbooks asked the kids the question; if we came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? These textbooks never ask the difficult questions.

    The commenters on the panel in the video were just a hideous embarrassment. I was waiting for one of them to say something like: “Look, our children in the public schools are being taught that they are the purposeless product of random accidents of chemistry and physics, when we now know that even the simplest bacterial cell is an information-processing system, the sophistication of which is far beyond anything produced or even imagined by our most experienced software and hardware engineers. This fact should be acknowledged and recognized in the science classroom.”

    GilDogden @1,

    Not to mention the conflation of ID with Creationism (especially near the end).

    I read this question phrased slightly differently: why do the lower apes still exist, when not a single superior ape-man does?
