Jesus did it.

pennyverse just found out that the Brunswick, NC school board wants to teach creationism along with evolution in class:

No, goddammit. That kind of belief is anti-knowledge - it assumes that we will never develop technology to the point of being able to find out where the universe came from. Science is not afraid to say "We don't know that yet, but we're working on it." We've been able to pinpoint what happened within 10-35 seconds after the Big Bang; there is nothing to say that in the future we will not be able to go further. Creationism, intelligent design - it all spits in the face of curiosity, technology, scientific inquiry, rationality, civilization. It's ridiculous, it's illogical, it's damaging, and if it ever makes its way into public-school science classes as anything other than a cheerful disclaimer to keep the fundies at bay, I will START MY OWN DAMN SCHOOL.

And it will be called THE SCHOOL OF MOTHERFUCKING SCIENCE.

And our motto will be NO, WE'RE NOT TAKING THAT BACK.


Context is reading The God Delusion.
