And Matthew Tully, writing in the Indianapolis Star (December 8, 2012), remarked, "Less than a year after Kruse and others in the state Senate failed to push an embarrassment of a bill through the legislature that would have allowed the teaching of creationism in science classes, the Auburn Republican is at it again. ... It's a silly idea at a time when seriousness is needed in the General Assembly. It's a distraction when the legislature should be focused on core education issues. It's a reminder that ideology far too often gets in the way of tackling important issues under the Statehouse dome. And it's an attempt to walk through the back door a bill that — thanks to sensible lawmakers, outraged voters and the courts — can't make it through the front."
A GOP science-denier is back at it in Indiana. Students in science class should be able to demand evidence for evolution?
Ah. I see.
Funny how this proposed legislation doesn't apply to history students demanding evidence for Bunker Hill, too. After all, do you *know* anyone who *actually saw* the battle happen? Surely paintings, diaries, newspaper clippings, and a battlefield memorial aren't evidence in the same way that geology, fossils, and genetics aren't evidence for evolution. Bunker Hill is a lie propagated by God-hating historians!
