    Rev. Barry Lynn, Americans United for Separation of Church & State, Executive Director and Edward Sisson, Intelligent Design Attorney have a discussion on the 1968 Supreme Court case of Epperson v. Arkansas. The 9-0 decision overturned an Arkansas law, which prohibited teachers in public schools from teaching, or using textbooks that teach, human evolution.

    Sorry Shav, only a verbal dismemberment, but, my God, the Reverend really put that guy in his place.

    The one point he slipped, in my opinion, is when the attorney said he had a better understanding in science because he had a science degree from MIT. He also had previously said it was in architecture or some such - a design subject, rather than "real science".

    What? That CSPAN Program with the Evolutionist clergy and the ID MIT grad?

    That was no super victory for the Evo Clergy guy.

    You have plenty of them. And your house of cards is still slowly crumbling like South African Apartied or the Berlin Wall.

    I hate to agree, but you're somewhat right. Science and the standards of science in this country are being slowly eroded by the ridiculous theocratic factions that would rather us teach the bible than reality in science class.

    It's a shame really.

    I'm so gleeful. There's NO COMPETENT COMPETITION out there for my job as science teacher!

    Unfortunately, the school boards who peddle this nonsense don't want competent people.
