It seems the plan is to make students as scientifically ignorant as possible.
It stupidity makes kids more apt to accept the right wing christian agenda, does that say anything about that agenda
Also is Jindal doing penance for the sin of telling the truth about the party of dumb.
He's just one of the boys now

Louisiana is a backwater which no one would visit but for New Orleans and Mardi Gras. It's no surprise that their rightie twit of a Governor seeks to bolster his support on the nutwing of the GOPee by pushing an anti-science, anti-learning agenda.

Embarrassing. They're the new Arizona or Texas.

Real science rots the minds of Red State students.
Quick, dumb them down!
Make them fit for conservative dogma.

The Earth was created 6,000 years ago and people
coexisted with T-Rex.
Not scientific, but a faith-based fact.
Is there any other kind?

I read where a coupla illegals while digging a hole,( not unlike our govt) found a saddle still cinched to some bones. When asked what they were gonna do with their find, they said they were gonna haul them to the Creation Museum in Kintuky. Said the head curator was wetting himself over the news.

Attention theturd!!! Compared to Governor Jindal's intellect you are nothing but a dead bug on a windshield. Furthermore gun states like Louisiana, Texas, etc. are waaaaaaaay over your tiny demented pinhead...For your health and well being I suggest you stick to stench of your smelly Rat's nest.

Attention buffaloshthead!!! How is that 7 round limit workin' for you while that self-serving filth bloomturd and cocomo enjoy heavily armed security 24/7? When it comes to security it's seems clear to me that when you compare the heavily guarded pompous elite to a lowly lintlicker like you the answer is, "you and yours ain't worth spit." I know the truth hurts son but sometimes ignorant punks like you need a good Louisiana-Bytch-Slap or two or three...you know what I mean?

Only a wacked-out Rightie like you would be adoring Piyush's "intellect" in such a silly way. Glad you admit those are "gun states" (quite true, and rare for you!), but rest assured I'm quite happy where I am, far away from the Bible and Ignorance Belt....LOL

Are they avoiding teaching the effects of having kids with your sister? Yes, no time for science with bible study, instead.

Ok, that was funny. Creationism is NOT science.(It's not even very good religion.) Evolution is.

If they want to teach "intelligent design" as part of metaphysics in a philosophy class, that's fine. That's not hard science either.

This is just nuts.

I think Bertrand Russel was interrupted during a metaphysics lecture one time by an old lady yelling: "Wrong, wrong, wrong! The earth is flat and it's supported by an elephant who is standing atop a huge turtle."

Russel replied: "Indeed Madam? So pray, do tell us: what is the turtle supported by?"

She yelled back: "Another turtle! It's turtles, turtles, turtles all the way down!"

So at least metaphysics might teach them some humor.
