GOD IS JUST AS SCIENTIFIC AS THAT OTHER SCIENCEY JUNK, ACCORDING TO DEMOCRACY
Well, it’s that time of year again: the time of year for average patriotic Texans to pressure schools to teach creationism as science.
This fight happens every year, and luckily in Texas we seem to make a little more progress every time the question comes up. And by “progress”, I naturally mean that science textbooks have less and less science, and more and more God.
This is the way it should be, because in the great country of Texas, people believe in God. And they believe in Democracy. And in a Democracy, people get to vote on what to believe. And if people vote that God is just as sciencey as genes and monkeys and all that other crap, then that means it must be true.
There has been a lot of chatter on the radio here in Texas, with people talking about the fact that actual educators, scientists, and other people with fancy book-learning actually do not want any more God in science textbooks. Instead, only the regular, non-educated common folk “activists” want it.
Well to that I say: who cares? In a democracy, we get to vote on what to believe; and in Texas, there are more of us regular non-educated folks than those sciencey, nerdy folks.
Just to drive the point home, here is a graph to illustrate:
