It is interesting that these anti-science bills are sounding more and more like pro science bills except for just a few words that allow, encourage, and even require funding for the teaching of climate science denialism and creationism.
Michael Zimmerman has a nice write up on how the big boys in creationism have been rather flustered by a former High School Student (now College Student) Zach Kopplin who, as I’m sure you know, has been challenging creationists in halls of government and elsewhere for a few years now.
When Ham was asked if he had seen an article about Zack Kopplin, a Rice University sophomore who has been fighting creationism since his high school days in New Orleans, he responded simply and clearly: “Yes — he is a product of the system — brainwashed by secularists — is so ignorant about what science really is — we are writing a blog about it.”
