Fact-Free Blogging About Teaching Evolution
How hard is it to understand what we're not teaching intelligent design means? It means exactly that. Yet for some strange reason there are Darwinist bloggers who insist on passing on false information. Over at The Stir, Julie Marsh uses Stephen Hawking's recent assertions that the natural laws of physics preclude any intelligent designer as a springboard to jump on the Texas State Board of Education for teaching intelligent design. News flash: they aren't teaching intelligent design, and no board members have proposed such a thing.
Even the Darwin loving Dallas Morning News has clearly reported the Texas State Board of Education's position against teaching intelligent design.
"Should "intelligent design" - the cousin of creationism - be taught in science classes in Texas alongside evolution?People who don't know the facts about a subject shouldn't blog about it. Ms. Marsh is welcome to her opinion, but she needs to get her facts straight.
A solid majority of the State Board of Education, which will rewrite the science curriculum for public schools next year, is against the idea, even though several members say they are creationists and have serious doubts about Charles Darwin's theory that humans evolved from lower life forms."
