Wow. What country do you live in? I want to go there.


Kings were put to death long before 21 January 1793. But regicides of earlier times and their followers were interested in attacking the person, not the principle, of the king. They wanted another king, and that was all. It never occurred to them that the throne could remain empty forever. -- Albert Camus

Re: Uh oh.
Heh. Yeah, I did notice that meaning of the word when I posted, but I really was responding to the literal meaning of "impotent".

Any political force that can succeed in getting their agenda adopted by local school boards and governments and then waste months of court time when people oppose that is not quite, in my opinion, impotent.

Impotent would be when they testify at a school board meeting the main responses are simply snickers and rolling eyes.

All we can really hope for is that high schoolers come out with good fundamentals and a general grasp of science topics.

You mean like evolutionary biology?

All species can be placed on a single philogenic tree. Almost all of biology revolves around this fact. Hence, knowing about common descent helps in developing a general grasp of all of biology. How is this not a fundamental?

We're very certain natural selection happens, we are very certain speciation happens, these have all been tested by scientific experiments.

We're also very certain that all known species have evolved over three and a half billion years from a single ancestral species.
