History Repeats

Tennessee really wants to corner the market on "monkey trials." A piece in the National Center for Science Education says that the Tennessee legislature has passed a new bill that encourages
teachers to present the "scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses" of topics that arouse "debate and disputation" such as "biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning"

The only thing standing it its way now is whether or not Governor Bill Haslam has the backbone to veto this ridiculous legislation.
