TEACH THE CONTROVERSY

Proponents of so-called "intelligent design" say they're only trying to create better students by "teaching the controversy" over evolution.

Fine. We've found just the place for the second wave of attacks on science.

Geocentricity insists that the Earth is the center of the universe. Common sense -- and astronomy -- dictate that this is not true. But Geocentrists have a web site that casts doubt on heliocentrism. A graf:
The Copernican Revolution, as this change of view is called, was not just a revolution in astronomy, but it also spread into politics and theology. In particular, it set the stage for the development of Bible criticism. After all, if God cannot be taken literally when He writes of the "rising of the sun," then how can He be taken literally in writing of the "rising of the Son?"
We can't wait for the Geocentrists to piss on Copernicus' newly found grave.

See how many "better students" are being taught by some in your neck of the woods.
