Even more creationism

Here's a Nick Coleman column on the Minnetonka creationism issue. It does shed a little light on the subject: the proposed Minnetonka standard would say "The great diversity of organisms is the result of more than three and a half billion years of evolution that has filled every available niche with life forms." Would Eaton or some other person give a scientific theory that fills in the little word "more" in that sentence? What scientific theory accounts for the "more"? Why is there a need for "more"?

We also learn that Eaton fought against the International Baccalaureate program because some people thought it went against Christianity. So to the surprise of nobody, Eaton really is a fundamentalist who wants to put his version of fundamentalist Christianity in Minnetonka schools, ignoring the needs of students to be taught something that is actually factual and useful. Why can't all these people set up a colony in Utah or somewhere else where they can fill their children's heads with all the nonsense that they want? They won't have to worry about "anti-Christian" curricula, and the rest of us who live in the reality-based community certainly won't have to worry about competing with those people for jobs.

"Reality based"
Then why are you so upset about a 15 minute discussion in a class but turn a blind eye to the failing of the over all school system thanks to the teachers union?
The kids might be stupid but at least they are not Christians.
thats "Reality based"

If you paid attention at all to my posts, you would know that I have a lot of problems with the state of public education, and that includes the teacher's union.
