Unless they are stopped which, frankly, does not seem very likely.
The Livingston Parish School Board, in Louisiana, is poised to enthusiastically support the introduction of creationism into the school curriculum as a requirement, and possibly even toss out evolution. You people in Louisiana are truly a bunch of morans*. You do know that, right?
Barbara Forrest, author of Creationism’s Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design, has written a letter that you may want to read about the school board’s intentions, and the NCSE has a detailed press report here.
Here’s the thing that is so remarkable about this situation, and the thing that gives Louisiana Your Stupid State status on this blog: Most of the time, when the law is laid down in a given state or federal court district, it becomes apparent that pushing religion and/or creationism into public schools is embarrassing and costly. Yes, indeed, this school district will probably be set back considerably after the creationists force them to expend huge amounts of money in legal fees to support a position the can’t win. That is what generally happens. So, what is so astonishing about this particular case is that the most recent major slapdown of creationists in the courts was Edwards v. Aguillard in which “The court found that the Louisiana Legislature’s actual intent was “to discredit evolution by counterbalancing its teaching at every turn with the teaching of creationism, a religious belief.”
Really. Get a job, morans.
