I Should Stop Reading Pharyngula

Of course, I'm kidding - Myers's site is always a fun and educational read. But today he referred to a town hall meeting he attended a year ago to discuss Minnesota science standards, and I was saddened and concerned. If I found out that my local school board tried to force the ID garbage down my kid's throat all in the name of "equal time" and "critical thinking", I'd blow a gasket. It's so hard to try and approach the slow yet growing retreat from science in this country with measured skepticism. Yet we're fortunate that there are people like Myers who know their stuff and are not afraid to combat creationism in all of its forms.
