The Evolution of School Boards

first_imgA press release from Michigan State University encourages scientists to run for school boards on a pro-evolution platform.  Alarmed that 40% of students are doubting evolution, Jon Miller encourages his fellow evolutionists to get involved in improving “science literacy.”  He sees this as a necessary counter to “other special interest groups, often conservative or religiously fundamental, highly organized in training and supporting candidates.”    There’s a price to pay for involvement beyond the 15-hour-a-week commitment.  “No scientist can run on a pro-evolution platform and not expect to find themselves engaged in other issues,” Miller said.  In his 3-year stint on the DeKalb County school board, “he learned more about school finances than he had thought possible.”It’s a free country and whoever has the time, money and talent can give it their best shot.  But would you vote for the Stalin Party for Congress?    It’s not like the Darwinists don’t already have a complete monopoly on textbooks, curriculum and media with the ACLU-KGB at their beck and call.  Isn’t it interesting that, after decades of government-funded indoctrination, this very one-sided situation in their favor has still not enabled them to convert more students.    Don’t think the pro-evolution candidates want to just add their voice to a fair and balanced democratic process.  They want to protect the Charlie Temple Mount from entry by other religions.  That’s what happened in Kansas this month (see ARN).(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
