We need to go to e books so texas can change history and science till its hearts content without effecting the other states. Anyone who has looked into this realizes that a publishing company can't risk offending the religious beliefs of texas, they buy too many books.

Good point, if we can't change history, Obama will look like noting more than a minor league president who gave us more debt and obamacare. His historic efforts to bring the country together might be forgotten.

Ii was thinking of things like there were dinosaurs, the earth is like 4.5 billion years old not like 6000 years. Neanderthal man, homo-erectus and all those other skeletons we found came from people who lived and walked the earth, they are not bones put here by the devil to trick us.
