A couple weeks ago, my wife, Lilandra and I once again testified before the Texas State Board of Education. They were still considering including language in the science standards that was designed to undermine teaching of evolution. This language would have encouraged ignorant teachers to cite anti-science apologetics instead of teaching anyone what the theory is or the evidence for it. Lilandra and I testified in opposition to an overwhelming collection of creationists, but we were pleasantly surprised that the SBoE actually voted not to include such language, and to simply teach the scientific consensus without apology.
