  9:20 AM — To Mock a Killing-Bird
Ohio's going the way of Kentucky. Intelligent Design is now an "optional" part of the Ohio science cirriculum. However, there's statewide standardized testing that is tailored exactly to the science cirriculum... (In Massachusetts, the cirriculum is called the Frameworks, and the tests the MCAS. And people say only NY and CA have Regents.)

Ohio evolution lesson plan irks science groups (

It occurred to me while on the pot this morning, that if people don't believe in evolution, they don't believe in the creation of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Superbugs either don't exist, or God made them in hospitals to kick the sick while they're down. Job's got nothing on those patients. They don't believe the rapidly-spreading bird flu is any threat to the human race. Avian flu isn't readily transmissable to humans yet, and isn't usually in contact with human flus so it can't gain their traits. But pigs can get either the bird or human versions, so cases of bird flu near pig farms are particularly worrisome. Unless you believe in "intelligent design." Then you only have to worry if God's out to get you. And hey He's a loving God, the God of the Gentiles. I mean, just look at how wonderful the world is today.
