Conservatives are not stupid BUT…

Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.  

-John Stuart Mill

Case in point comes from one of our readers. A South Carolina state senator doesn’t believe in evolution (which, as written, even the local newspaper sees as a “philosophy”). He would like to nudge the “science” out of the science curriculum:

“Natural selection is a direct reference to Darwinism,” State Sen. Mike Fair (R-Greenville) said after the meeting. “And the implication of Darwinism is that it is start to finish.”

Fair argued South Carolina’s students are learning the philosophy of natural selection but teachers are not calling it such. He said the best way for students to learn is for the schools to teach the controversy.

“To teach that natural selection is the answer to origins is wrong,” Fair said. “I don’t have a problem with teaching theories. I don’t think it should be taught as fact.”

It’s always the Scopes Monkey Trial in the Palmetto State where thunder is just angels bowling and cameras steal your soul.
