← Biology test omits creation theory, complains Kentucky educator

In many states, as well as Kentucky, and, even some educated educators, prove that nuts grow on more than trees and bushes (no insult to the trees and bushes intended).

Consider the article's final sentence: The superintendent remained defiantly skeptical in the face of scientific consensus, noting that it was "interesting that the great majority of scientists felt Pluto was a planet until a short time ago, and now they have totally changed that."

What in the hell does that statement have to do within a rational discussion about the "Theory of Evolution" versus the cockamamie, crackpot theories of reality dreamed up by uneducated goat herders , having faith in talking snakes and donkeys and flying horses, etc. -- pure, childish, B.S. storytelling.

Wow, so science changed the description of what identifies a planet versus smaller cosmic bodies, but the reality of Pluto existing hasn't changed one whit. For example, there may be a time a-coming that I find a better descriptive term for crazy religious persons -- other than "Nuts!"
