Very interesting article on the probable upcoming debate on evolution in Texas science textbooks.

Spectator Article

Some educators breathed a sign of relief, thinking that Texas science classes might be spared religious controversy. Yet buried in the TEKS existing standards is the reason that Texas could be the center of evolution’s next big battle: Section 3a reads: “The student is expected to analyze, review, and critique scientific explanations, including hypotheses and theories, as to their strengths and weaknesses using scientific evidence and information.” (Italics added.)

Good thing the Institute for Creation Research may soon get to offer a Masters of Science Education in Texas. That way teachers will be prepared to “teach the controversy.”

  1. Lets continue to push for an opening for the Institute for Creation Research. This battle in Texas will not be easy, however if ICR is evaluated based on their science it should be a breeze.
    The evolutionist religion is so strong that if people oppose it, they will anything to sensor you.
