We interrupt the regularly scheduled stream-of-consciousness for stupid politics.
The creationist fucktards are bringing the battle into Colorado. Are we gonna let them sneak this shit through?
Just a few days ago, a bill was introduced into my home state’s legislature that would allow teachers “to miseducate students about evolution, whether by teaching creationism as a scientifically credible alternative or merely by misrepresenting evolution as scientifically controversial.
The antiscience bill HB 13-1089 is one of the Orwellian-named “Academic Freedom” thrusts by creationists, where legislators claim they just want teachers to have freedom about what they can teach, but is in fact a clear and obvious attack on scientific fields that disagree with the beliefs of the conservative lawmakers.
Everyone in Colorado with a Rep sitting on this committee – write them. Email is good, snail mail is even better. Let them know we enjoy living in the NOT dark ages.
