Texas and Creation Science
I may have to quit teaching…
According to an Article in the New York Times, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is having a hearing to decide whether the Institute for Creation Research to be allowed to train science EDUCATORS!!!!!
The Institute for Creation Research has nothing to do with science or education. It is religion pure and simple. Their so-called ‘scientists’ must sign a contract that says (paraphrase) that no matter what their research finds, that they will report that their research supports the concept of special creation.
I have spent to many years dealing with ignorant kids to have this thrown in my face. It will not happen if I have to personally sue the THECB.
If you are a science educator in Texas, please contact the THECB to tell them that even consideration of the ICR is a tragedy and possibly against the law.
Oh, and how come the New York Times knows about this, but Texans don’t!!!!
