Wired is worried about Texas too
Who isn’t? Now just two days away from deciding what will constitute the standard science textbook in Texas, everyone should be paying attention. This is especially true since many other states often base their own curriculum on what Texas does. I didn’t know this, but these guys produce most of the teaching material for much of the south. So in that sense, this whole issue just got a lot more intense.
It seems obvious evolution is only the first of many targets for creationists. There are plenty of other subjects that would seriously be undermined under their tutelage. Cosmology, physics, and medicine are subjects these guys also feel really strongly about, and not in a good way.
I don’t want to sound melodramatic, but if you live in Texas and you aren’t ready to explode, something has to be wrong with you. When will the madness end?
