Hearings will be held today in Jacksonville and early next week in Miramar Florida to determine if the word “evolution” will be integrated into the school science curriculum.
Information on the Jacksonville Hearing is here:
A public meeting about the new draft of the state science standards is tomorrow. If you are in the area, please take the time to attend in support of sound science education. Those opposed to evolution are sure to be there in force. If you wish to speak at the meeting, you may want to show up early in order to get on the list. If you do go, please report back to us what happened.

There has been a lot of support in the press and in other areas for the “evolution side” of this discussion, but a lot of numbers … of crazy yahoos emerging form the community … in support of teaching intelligent design along side of evolution, essentially as a compromise to not teaching evolution at all. They will be at these hearings in large numbers. The event may be very circus like. We will all be watching.
