Florida Says Evolution Happened: by One Vote
Three of these people are still on the Florida school board
by Benjamin Wachs
Yesterday the Florida school board voted 4-3 to acknowledge what everybody already knows.
Man is descended from monkeys who didn't know any better. All right? Everybody clear on that?
Well, not “everybody” — instead of labeling it the “theory of evolution,” the school board compromised and called it the “scientific theory of evolution.” Because that just … you know … um …
“Department of Education officials floated the last-minute revision Friday in the face of mounting opposition from religious conservatives who said the proposed standards were too dogmatic in their treatment of evolution,”said the St. Petersburg Times.
Ohhhhhh … I get it. The “scientific theory of evolution” means there’s wiggle room – if you don’t believe in science.
Which is still SO up in the air. Now go learn, you crazy kids!
