Yay For Us
Okay, normally I don't discuss politics (mostly because my closest friends run the gamut from fascist conservatives to bleeding heart liberals), but today's district court decision that teaching what is essentially creationism in a public school science class is untenable restores my faith in our society. It seems that we are so often polarized by political, religious or cultural differences that there is no hope for homogeneity. Regardless of whether one believes in Intelligent Design or Evolution (which are *not* mutually exclusive), a thinking mind can't help but admit such arguments do not belong in the classroom. Otherwise, we'd have to give equal time to the flying spaghetti monster, with which I would be amenable, but then where does it end?! I'm sure I won't make any friends with this post, but I felt strong enough about it to commit it to writing.
So when the NSA arrests me for activities unbecoming an American citizen, you'll have to remind them that I supported Judge Jones' desicision, despite him being a Bush appointee.
