Religious-nut school board kicked out enmass in Dover PA

In a day of good election news for Democrats, mu favorite was this one. Is good sense returning to the electorate?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

The new ID exhibition centre just opened is a beauty. Star attractions include life-size mechanical models of dinosaurs and humans living together in harmony, in the Garden of Eden. On the footage I caught the tv reporter could hardly keep a straight face, and made some quip about 'The Flintstones'. The director of the centre believes the world is six thousand years old, fossils and all. Yabadabado.

Apparently they stopped short of including Kazoo, the wise cracking Martian, simply because God would not have blessed creation with the plastic for his helmet until 1835. An obvious conflict to the truth.

"Fossils" were fabricated and planted by Satan!

There are more holes in this evo theory than in my palms and feet.

Oh Yeah? Well god will show em.

Televangelist Robertson warns town of God's wrath By Alan Elsner
1 hour, 14 minutes ago



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Conservative Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting "intelligent design" and warned them on Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.

Robertson, a former Republican presidential candidate and founder of the influential conservative Christian Broadcasting Network and Christian Coalition, has a long record of similar apocalyptic warnings and provocative statements.

Last summer, he hit the headlines by calling for the assassination of leftist Venezuelan Present Hugo Chavez, one of President George W. Bush's most vocal international critics.

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city," Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, "The 700 Club."

"And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there," he said.

The 700 Club claims a daily audience of around one million. It is also broadcast around the world translated into more than 70 languages.

In voting on Tuesday, all eight Dover, Pennsylvania, school board members up for re-election lost their seats after trying to introduce "intelligent design" to high school science students as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

Adherents of intelligent design argue that certain forms in nature are too complex to have evolved through natural selection and must have been created by a "designer." Opponents say it is the latest attempt by conservatives to introduce religion into the school science curriculum.

The Dover case sparked a trial in federal court that gained nationwide attention after the school board was sued by parents backed by the American Civil Liberties Union. The board ordered schools to read students a short statement in biology classes informing them that the theory of evolution is not established fact and that gaps exist in it.

The statement mentioned intelligent design as an alternate theory and recommended students read a book that explained the theory further. A decision in the case is expected before the end of the year.

In 1998, Robertson warned the city of Orlando, Florida that it risked hurricanes, earthquakes and terrorist bombs after it allowed homosexual organizations to put up rainbow flags in support of sexual diversity.

My Biology teacher asked us our opinion about this. We spent about 40 minutes telling eachother about our opinions.

He is a good teacher. He had a college professor that was very religious. The guy went to church every Sunday with his family, and he said prayers and grace every day. BUT, he firmly believes the theory of evolution. Just goes to show not all people that are religous believe in creationsm. My teacher asked us "Is it fair that the judiciary people who have no background in evolution, who can't grasp what evolution is actually teaching us (not just that we come from monkeys)?" He also pointed out, that the parents that are suing the schools or fighting to get rid of evolution theory have no science degree or have any background knowledge on the theory. About 98% of them in fact.
