Out and About the Intertubes


Good Riddance:

John Freshwater, the Mount Vernon, Ohio "science teacher" who burned crosses into the arms of his students with laboratory equipment and continued to undermine the teaching of evolution in his classes, despite instructions to stick to the curriculum, has been put on track to be fired. The school board voted 5-0 to begin the process. Freshwater has two weeks in which to appear before the board and give reasons why he should not be fired.

To see the reasons he fully deserves to be, take a look at the report of the investigation by an independent consultant.

Run It Up the Poll:

The Gallup folks are back with their trusty poll that, despite the different numbers in the recent FASEB survey, continues to give essentially the same numbers on the evolution/creationism divide as it has for the past 26 years: 44% creationists, 36% "theistic evolutionists;" and 14% evolution without divine intervention.

Perhaps the most interesting numbers are those by political party. Republicans are 60% creationists, while Independents are 40% and Democrats are 38%. Reality doesn't do too well in Republican ranks, whether it comes to government or science.

Oh! Riiiight!:

Democrats have their own (smaller) share of reality-challenged party stalwarts, though. One of the most challenged at the moment is Louisiana State Senator Ben Nevers, who sponsored that state's "academic freedom" law that is on the verge of becoming law. Just to demonstrate his disconnect, Nevers said recently that he didn't think lawsuits would be filed because of the legislation.

Say, Senator, do you think you can take a trip up here to New York? There's this bridge I think you'll really like ...
.

Comments:
When you're done selling Mr. Nevers a nice bridge, have him swing by my place for a look at that beachfront condo I'm selling down in Yuma. I'm sure he'd just luurrrve it!

Mr. Freshwater deserves prosecution, but I'll take a good firing. I love how he and some of his more guillable students tried to paint this as a "religious freedom" thing - as if having a Bible in class was the extent of his bs. Good at teaching kids to lie for Jesus, wasn't he?
 
If I was a Christian, I'd be madder at Freshwater than even you and I are. After all, here they go around telling everyone how being a believer gives them a moral basis for their life and this dork sets out to break the rules he has been clearly informed of and then to lie -- badly -- about what he did and make 'em all look bad.

In fact, that may be the factor that gets this bozo's ass fired for real. Have you seen Richard B. Hoppe's post at the Panda's Thumb? Richard apparently lives in the Mt. Vernon area and reports that most of the community, except for the hard-core Kool Aid brigade, has had enough of this mouth-breather.
 
That Freshwater report is astonishing.
