Creationist museum visit thwarted by science

I swear:
Lincoln Elementary students were unable to visit the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum after a Washington, D.C.-based group, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, sent a letter claiming the event was illegal. The museum's founder and director, Otis E. Kline Jr., said the public school tours are modified to focus on material evidence, not religious teaching, but he does not yield in his belief that fossils and geologic records point to ideas such as the notion that all animal species appeared at once or that life is too complex to develop by chance. "If evolution makes a claim and the claim is refuted by science, then I have no problem saying that, because that's the truth," Kline said. "We don't make things up here." [Casper Star-Tribune]
South Dakota passed a statewide curriculum after dumbing down climate and history requirements to assuage that state's science deniers.

Off topic here, but do you suppose DD sent Ms Kristi a thank-you note for her vote against the Hurricane Sandy relief bill? Now he's on his knees to Obama for a declaration for Delmont. Bet it doesn't bother him a bit - hypocritical assholes.

Not to be a hard-ass . . . but don't those folks have insurance? I'd be covered if one came through here. WTF is the deal?

What a hard-ass, Duff. Not just South Dakota, but Texas, too. Hypocrisy is just a river draining lies into the Gulf of Mexico. Moral hazard is the American Way while self-reliance falls to the homeless and desperate.

Always good to read you.
