We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

There is a ongoing battle for the minds of our children that is never going away as long as religion rules the land.

A T-Rex, Oklahoma, and the unfortunate fate of Charles Darwin.

UPDATE: On February 19, HB1674 passed through the Oklahoma Common Education committee on a 9-8 vote.

In biology class, public school students can't generally argue that dinosaurs and people ran around Earth at the same time, at least not without risking a big fat F. But that could soon change for kids in Oklahoma: On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Common Education committee is expected to consider a House bill that would forbid teachers from penalizing students who turn in papers attempting to debunk almost universally accepted scientific theories such as biological evolution and anthropogenic (human-driven) climate change.

Gus Blackwell, the Republican state representative who introduced the bill, insists that his legislation has nothing to do with religion; it simply encourages scientific exploration. "I proposed this bill because there are teachers and students who may be afraid of going against what they see in their textbooks," says Blackwell, who previously spent 20 years working for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. "A student has the freedom to write a paper that points out that highly complex life may not be explained by chance mutations."

Stated another way, students could make untestable, faith-based claims in science classes without fear of receiving a poor mark.

While the rest of the world and the sane parts of the US move forward on the advances of science and technology they will slowly fall back to the level of 3 world countries. Trades and technicians these days require a knowledge of science so who are they going to get to do it? 

Bloody idiots!!

Sheer unmitigated idiocy, poorly disguised as freedom of thought.

Freedom to be a dumb ass is more like it. =)

I should look at our biology textbooks to see how evolution is taught. This guy is a nuthead and shouldn't be allowed to lead members of the public!

But, you see, they are right! We DO coexist with dinosaurs! Mr. Blackwell himself is a good example of a pea-brained, sluggish beast on its way to extinction :-P

Pity is that he wants to take the rest of us with him. 

But will not succeed!

True. :-)

Lolz!

This is beyond belief...
