Darwinist group's open letter to LA Gov. Bobby Jindal

Here is the text of the letter from the "Louisiana Coalition for Science" urging Jindal to veto Senate Bill 733, which calls for "critical thinking skills," "logical analysis", and, worst of all, "open and objective discussion" about scientific issues. It would appear that these things are all a part of the Evil Creationist Plot to Take Over Schools.

No one really expects the governor to do anything but gladly sign it, however, at which point we can expect a reign of terror in Louisiana schools wherein students will be required to think critically, practice logic, and conduct all discussions openly and objectively.

How could this happen in America?

If you don't believe this bill is about creationism, check out the Louisiana Family Forum. They've acknowledged drafting the bill for its Senate sponsor. They also distribute what they call "textbook addenda,"

filled with references to creationist literature (such as Jonathan Woodmorappe's work on flood geology) and repetitions of creationist falsehoods about Darwin's finches, etc.

So if I checked out the background and references behind those who oppose it, I wouldn't find any atheist influences?

This is the type of information ID wants to teach.

The Video - Louisiana Coalition for Science - is afraid of!

Is this something you would not let your children see?
