In a letter sent to the State Board of Education, Jimmy Gollihar of the University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology describes the lengths to which creationists are going to undermine science and advance Creationism in Texas classrooms, as well as the help they are receiving from board chair Barbara Cargill. While the panels reviewing science textbooks are supposed to be independent of the school board, Cargill worked closely with creationism advocates on the panels, leading Gollihar to note that Cargill aided “those who might reasonably be regarded as...

Creationists advising the Texas Education Agency, the state’s board of education, are no longer even trying to hide the fact that they want to insert pseudo-scientific material grounded in religious beliefs into public school science textbooks. Terrence Stutz of the Dallas Morning News reports that evolution detractors appointed to the review boards are urging the textbook publishers to ignore the Supreme Court (along with science) and push Creationism, or be rejected. One of the panelists reviewing the biology textbooks, a nutritionist, said that “creation science based on... MORE

The fear-mongering in the Family Research Council’s latest mailing starts on the envelope: “Beginning THIS MONTH…they don’t want any American child to escape. Read how we can STOP them.” “They” turns out to be “government-run schools” and the “radical” teachers that infest them. If a foreign enemy had plotted to infiltrate America, I’m not sure an army of undercover subversives could have done more damage than our government-run schools…. Leftists don’t want a single American child to escape their... MORE

Amazingly, Jerry Newcombe of Truth In Action Ministries disproves the entire theory of evolution every day when he logs into his computer. In a column arguing that the “Cambrian explosion” debunks evolution (actually, it doesn’t), Newcombe begins by saying that logging into a computer and entering a password makes it clear “how impossible evolution is”: Every time I log into a computer and have to enter my password, I'm reminded of how impossible evolution is. One little mistake on the keypad, and I can't log in. There's even a website where I... MORE

Today on her radio program, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association hosted right-wing author and WND reporter Jerome Corsi to talk about his new book, The Bad Samaritans: The ACLU’s Relentless Campaign to Erase Faith from the Public Square. Corsi, who has written top conservative books such as Unfit for Command and Where’s the Birth Certificate?, told Rios that the ACLU is trying to “eliminate God and attack the family” in order to “make the United States a socialist country” that ultimately “takes away our freedoms.” I think we are at...

Barbara Cargill, whom Rick Perry picked to chair the State Board of Education, is upset that a curriculum used by several Texas schools called CSCOPE, which has been at the center of right-wing conspiracy theories, doesn’t teach students about alternative theories to evolution. As first reported by the Texas Freedom Network, Cargill said that publishers and CSCOPE should teach “another side to the theory of evolution.” Our intent, as far as theories with the [curriculum standards], was to teach all sides of scientific explanations…. But when I went on [to the... MORE
