Tim: I know that...and spaceman: that is the argument used by Kopplin, not me: "if passed, Kopplin says HB580 could have a chilling effect on teachers all over the state. “If teachers are now being graded on students’ scores, how can we expect them to succeed when the textbooks are not in line (with what students must know to pass standardized tests)? That is why I asked the question......Just commenting on the above article.
You see, people can explain things without calling them "dumb" or other names. Thanks for your responses. I agree that it is very helpful to our well being. My next question concerns the legislative deal. My kids attended catholic school and received information, lectures, etc. on average, about an hour a day, about 180 days per year, on pure "creationism." Both attained very high ACT scores. Three kids in my oldest son's class got "perfect" scores on their ACT test. Many in my graduating class,(also a catholic school 40 years ago), are doctors, lawyers, educators, airline pilots, physicist and such. How would a paragraph in a high school text book stating that some people believe in 'intelligent design" or God or something screw up their test scores or put them at some educational disadvantage?
An honest question directed to people who have more knowledge about evolution than me. What is the scientific importance of evolution and its teachings? If all that is taught about evolution is true and provable, how does it improve the quality of human life. I am admitting that I ask this from a point of ignorance. What does it do for me or my kids future? What I'm asking is like chemistry, we produce things and combined with biology we cure disease and make our quality of life improve. I always considered evoltion like a history course or something. Enlighten me, please.
I'm just sick and tired of all the smart people in the world that think all of us are dumb. I have degrees coming out of my a**, but I am dumb because I don't agree with a bunch of nobel laureates. I choose to live my life the way I was raised and the way I raised my children...with a little faith and respect for people. I placed flowers on fathers grave this morning..scientifically that was dumb and waste of time. A nobel laureate would say he's dust and a gone pecan. But I like being dumb and living my life the way I want. There was a hundred or so people at mass this morning that I attended..all dumb people (some were doctors and lawyers and very sucessful businessman, but all dumb according to comments on this board. I passed a 3 baptist, a lutheran, a methodist, and two other catholic churches all filled with scores of dumb people from all walks of life, white black, indian, hsipanic and people of mixed backgrounds all dumb as Michele Bachman. I'm happy and dumb and just love it, so take your evolution theory and waste all of you time and money prove something that will absolutly add NO value to anyones life while here on earth and mostly because I could care less what you a**hole's think about my level of intelligence.
Dear hijackthemic: "If you're dumb enough to think someone as dumb as Michele Bachmann" Why don't you try to prove that Bachman is "dumb". Maybe you are the dumbest person on this board. After graduating from high school, Bachmann spent time working on a kibbutz in Israel.] In 1978 she graduated from Winona State University with a B.A.. In 1986 she received a J.D. degree from Oral Roberts University, followed by an LL.M. degree in tax law from the William & Mary Law School in 1988. She was a member of the final graduating class of the Oral Roberts University law school, and was part of a group of faculty, staff, and students who moved the ORU law school library to what is now Regent University.
From 1988 to 1993, Bachmann was an attorney representing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Where does the DUMB come in?
Charles Hard Townes, winner of a Nobel Prize in Physics and a UC Berkeley professor; Dr. Robert Gange is a research scientist (cryophisics), engineer, and adjunct professor the David Sarnoff Research Center in Princeton.Nobel Laureate Eugene P. Wigner; Richard E Smalley, winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize in chemistry. I could cut and paste all day but it won't satisfy anyone on this blog that are dead set on the THEORY of evolution as being scientific fact. everyone knows it is a THEORY and not proven science The "I have more smart people on my side" argument is weak. Remember, at one time, the overwhelming scientific community thought the world was flat.
What a weak article.Mr. Dubois; repeated himself over and over. Vitter, bad, Vitter bad, Vitter bad. Google image Stormy Daniels and it's pretty difficult to find one without sperm on her face. So if you are a blogger or driveby media person and hate Vitter I don't mind expressing your dislike,but please don't take the image of the state any lower by thinking we would vote for such a person...this isn't Minnesota. Let this story die...Please.
