Louisiana Passes Intelligent Design Law
I think the consensus logic of /. posters has led to an inescapable conclusion..
If the children of La are now doomed because they MIGHT not be taught the ToE as absolute fact in a government run school, then it follows that people like Newton, Hume, Hobbes, Voltaire, Galileo, Descartes, Plato, etc must have been retards, because they weren't taught the ToE either. Worse, some of them may have been taught Creationism instead.
So I guess we need to go ahead and throw out their works and go back to drawing board now that we have solid proof by consensus that their education was fatally flawed
As a life-long resident of Louisiana, I can tell you that I won't be wringing my hands over this. 20 years ago, public school sucked, and it sucks just as bad today if not worse... it's more like an Orwellian prison than it used to be. Send your kids to private school or home school them if you care about their education.
