GOP candidate for SC schools chief wants to teach ‘scientific theory of intelligent design’

1

A Republican who hopes to become the top education official in South Carolina says that children should be taught a form of creationism in school.

, one of eight Republican candidates for superintendent of education, said Tuesday in a GOP primary debate that she opposed the Next Generation Science Standards and believed that intelligent design should be taught alongside the theory of evolution.

“In regard to the evolution issue, I have to say that that is one of the problems with our education system today, and it is one of the problems that has been brought to light through the problems with the Common Core standards,” she remarked. “Children are not receiving an objective education.”

“There is plenty of science and research behind the theory of intelligent design, and yet it is not allowed in the classroom,” Few added. There is no reason why the scientific theory of intelligent design should not be taught in the classroom alongside the theory of evolution, and that way children would receive an objective education and they could also — for Christian children — could point to their God though the theory of intelligent design. Children need to have an objective education.”

(2 of 2) Virginia – Republican candidate: Evolution false because chimps can’t talk

1

Via: Raw Story

The Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia believes that biological evolution is false because chimpanzees cannot speak like humans do.

BuzzFeed revealed on Tuesday that E.W. Jackson made the claim in Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life, a book he published in 2008.

In the book, he noted that scientists had taught chimpanzees to use sign language. He said this finding was wrongly used as evidence that primates were our ancestors. Jackson said the scientists were incorrect because spoken language was a gift God provided exclusively to human beings and “no other creature.”

personal thought:

The GOP/Xristian Xrazies/GOP seem to me obsessed with chimps, apes, and other primates.

I’m thinking it must be a ‘sex thingy’, correct?

(1 of 2) Creation Museum founder Ken Ham (see photo) insists he is not an ape

Via: Raw Story

Creationist Ken Ham on Wednesday insisted that Homo sapiens were not in the same biological family as apes.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, the founder of the Creation Museum in Kentucky responded to an atheist who spoke out against his upcoming speaking engagement at the Texas Homeschool Convention.

During the secular podcast “The n0nes” on Tuesday, Lilandra Nelson said that Ham was demonstrably an ape despite his beliefs to the contrary. She advised him to “look in the mirror” and explained that “wisdom teeth” were evolutionary left-overs.

“It’s sad that so many children today are taught they are just animals, as this atheist believes,” Ham wrote in the description of his YouTube video. “If they are just animals and the Bible’s account of creation is not true, then there is no basis for moral absolutes—everyone could do whatever is right in his own eyes (which is happening more and more today).”

I gotta believe there are a lot of relieved apes out there today.

Vandals target University of Florida biology professors’ vehicles

Via: The Independent Florida Alligator

Letters, nails and vehicular sabotage haven’t kept two UF biology professors from expressing their belief in evolution.

In a string of events occurring over the past four months, the professors’ cars, which were parked in the Bartram-Carr Hall parking lot, were vandalized.

First, religious letters were left on the cars, and then pro-evolution bumper stickers and Darwin-fish emblems were scraped and torn from the vehicles. Most recently, nails were put into the tires.

One of the victims, Brian McNab, said he noticed a problem with his white Volkswagen when air continued to come out of the tires even after he had re-inflated them.

McNab took the car in for an inspection, and two two-inch nails were found and determined as the cause of the flat tires.

“I can’t prove who did it and I don’t want to jump to any conclusions,” McNab said. “But I think it’s obvious that it’s someone who has a strong opposition to evolution.”
