If we let this fool get one heart beat away from the Presidency then we risk intellectual devolution and the downfall of our country.  Instead of teaching math & science we will be debating burning bushes and walking on water. 

Just to put things into perspective: China has more honor students than the US has students.

Do you think that the Chinese, or India, spend a whole lot of time debating or teaching whether Abraham begat his only son?  No, me neither.

Instead of leading in medical and technical research, Palin would have us put our fate in the hands of Jesus.  Local school boards should stick to legally compliant math and science doctrines and reject creationism as nothing more than literature. 

This sounds harsh, but the next Jonas Salk could be livng in a town where the likes of Palin preside on a school board that have decided that teaching science is the devil’s work, when, in fact, it is the other way round.

Time:

COURIC: Should creationism be allowed to be taught anywhere in public schools?

Gov. PALIN: Don’t have a problem at all with kids debating all sides of theories, all sides of ideas that they ever–kids do it today, whether it’s on paper in a curriculum or not. Curriculums also are best left to the local school districts, instead of big brother, federal government, telling a district what they can and can’t teach.
