On my post about the Orwellian character of young-earth creationism, a commenter pointed out that a popular t-shirt series which deals with young-earth creationism also has one for doublethink:     [Read more...]

Big Brother’s Young-Earth Creationism

I’ve been working my way through George Orwell’s 1984 again with my students.

Hemant Mehta shared some images that it is horrifying to think that a public school science teacher gave to children. The content, scientifically speaking, is absolute garbage.
