  •  It is indeed unfortunate (2+ / 0-)

    that the Texas Board of Education voted on a challenge to evolution in March 2009. Link here  The chairman of the board at the time was Dr. McLeroy who believes God created the earth less than 10,000 years ago.  I think the only response to this level of lunacy is to be strident against people like Dr. McLeroy.  To cooperate and show respect for the ideas of a McLeroy is a terrible response to someone in power who can do damage to the education of children.  Religious moderates objecting to McLeroy being called an idiot because he is a fellow Christian need to be asked to defend his ideas about creation.  It is not his being a Christian that is the problem.  It is that his ideas are lunacy and he is in a position to implement lunatic policies.  We will not be helping religious moderates or science to be complacent and respectful to the McLeroyes of this world.
