Power Point Uses Intimidation, Not Reason, in Evolution Debate

***REPAIRED LINK**** This is the Power-Point presentation that Arkansas teachers have been forced to endure, except that I took the liberty of adding some audio comments on what I thought about the material presented in the slides. This takes a while to download, but I think you will be shocked at what you see, and how extreme and impeachment-worthy some judges have become. For example in one case a district had a disclaimer sticker on the book saying evolution is a theory, not fact, but it said nothing about creationism or any alternative theory. The judge ruled the stickers must go anyway.

All this started because of the Rogers science textbook issue, covered, but not well, in today's Morning News. I hate to even link to it, it was so poorly written. It does not describe what we want to do, which is fufill the Arkansas Framework standard requiring students to "evaluate evolution in terms of evidence". The texts don't evaluate any evidence, they just present it.
