A parade of ignorance and confidence.

Buzzfeed asked people to write messages to Bill Nye following his debate with Ken Ham (I’m still working on a post carving through all of Ham’s BS, stay tuned).  I didn’t watch the debate initially, but I asked a friend how it went.  My friend responded “Bill Nye gave science lessons to an audience of [Read More...]

Creationism is Better than Evolution

At least, that’s what at least one 7th grade social studies teacher at the Lakewood Middle School in North Little Rock, Arkansas, has spent three days teaching her class. Want proof? Examine the Power Point that went along with her lecture. It’s full of misrepresentations and bad science. This same school last year was the [Read More...]

The voucher system applied to other government responsibilities.

If the voucher system used to divert taxpayer money to religious schools were applied to other things, what would it look like?  Probably like this: [Read more...]

Seth Andrews gives us a video that will make you facepalm.

It made me facepalm. [Read more...]

Taxpayer dollars being used to uneducate kids.

Zack Kopplin does some of the most important work in the movement: he digs into creationism in high schools like none other.  An article in Slate the other day piggy-backed off Kopplin’s work and gave us a map where taxpayer money is being used to teach creationism.  If you go look at the map, you [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: creationist board of education in Texas defeated.

Ugh, my tummy hurts a lot today…so I need some morning happiness.  Kids across the United States, and even in Texas, are going to get sound science in their science textbooks: This week, the Texas State Board of Education held hearings to discuss the adoption of new textbooks for Texas schools. Given the SBOE’s past [Read More...]

Things are looking up in Texas.

There are a couple good stories out of Texas.  First, a Texas judge who was elected as a Republican is running for election, this time as a Democrat.  He explained his reasoning in a video: Some of the highlights include: “Rational Republican beliefs have given way to ideological character assassination.  Pragmatism and principle have been [Read More...]

Ken Ham says Bill Nye doesn’t understand science.

Ken Ham has taken another giant step towards securing himself a spot at the lack of self-awareness Olympics.  Ham just edged out porn stars accusing nuns of immodesty when he said: Australian “young Earth” creationist pastor Ken Ham said on Facebook Tuesday that Bill Nye “The Science Guy” does not “understand science correctly” because Nye [Read More...]

Discovery Institute isn’t happy that Ball State won’t be teaching creationism.

One of the teachers at Ball State, a public university, was about to teach a course with creationist overtones (if not overt creationism).  The FFRF caught wind of this and stepped in, and eventually Ball State’s president said that no such course would be offered because creationism is religious and has been deemed so by [Read More...]

Creationists on Texas board of education shoot themselves in the foot.

It used to be that creationists were sneaky.  They knew teaching creationism was against the law, so they tried to dress it up as science, or as teaching the “strengths and weaknesses” of evolution.  It wasn’t exactly crafty, and it certainly wasn’t honest. And the reason they weren’t honest is because playing fairly would result [Read More...]
