Finally! Creationism in Texas Kicked Out of Science Classes-Potentially Taught- Crushed

Creationism has never been taught in public schools. But the SBOE and others have tried, by stealth, to undermine science. Debate resolved, Texas has FACT-BASED SCIENCE, not creationism

From NCSE

Now a memorandum from the Texas Education Agency to the board dated August 11, 2011, indicates (PDF) that Commissioner Scott determined that Holt McDougal "has sufficiently addressed all eight of the reported errors." Particularly noteworthy was Holt McDougal's response to the complaint (about a lab activity comparing hominid skulls) that "it is erroneous to pretend that common ancestry is the cause" of the similarity of human skulls with those of other hominids: "This lab activity was not changed."

In a post at its blog dated August 15, 2011, the Texas Freedom Network observed, "Here's the head-exploding part for the creationists. Not only does the final version of Holt not include creationist arguments against evolution, but they also include language explicitly affirming Darwin's theories," adding, "With Holt's materials finalized, we can now say with certainty that all of the materials approved from the nine publishers are in line with fact-based science and free of creationist attacks seeking to undermine science."

Governor Rick Perry not only is in favor of creationism being taught but has put 3 creationists in charge of the SBOE (State Board of Education). He must be crushed that Texas has to have standards like the rest of the United States.

P.S Saw today 8/18/2011 that Secessionist Rick Perry is telling New Hampshire kids that creationism is taught in public schools in Texas. No it is not.

NPR's Ari Shapiro who was covering Perry's campaign Thursday, reports that during the Texas governor's visit to Popovers coffee shop in downtown Portsmouth, a boy asked the Republican seeking his party's presidential nomination how old the world is.

Perry replied:

How old do I think the earth is? You know what? I don't have any idea. I know it's pretty old. So it goes back a long, long way. I'm not sure anybody actually knows completely and absolutely how old the earth is.

I hear your mom was asking about evolution and, you know, it's a theory that's out there. It's got some gaps in it, but in Texas we teach both creationism and evolution in our public schools. Because I figure you're smart enough to figure out which one is right.

Geez. He's not smart enough to know what's taught in his OWN STATE!
