"He said the teacher admitted to not believing in the scientific theory to his daughter but told her that the government forced him to teach the lesson."

Smells like bullsh*t to me.

FTA:Despite Miller's attacks on Washington's influence on education, Minnesota's academic standards in science are set by the state Department of Education.

Maybe she can help him out with geography.

Yeah, because being competitive in the global market is for Commies or something...

"Yeah. All these equations are like miracles. You take two numbers and when you add them they magically become one new number. No one can say how it happens. You either believe it or you don't. The whole book is full of things that have to be accepted on faith. It's a religion!"

While I haven't read On the Origin of Species myself, I'm sure there is much in it I'd disagree with, since it's 150 years old and certainly quite obsolete at this point. We've gotten a much better picture since then.

Also, "Miller, a hospital account manager and Iraq War veteran, said during the congressional district's Republican Party convention in Albert Lea on Saturday that Minnesota needs more religious freedom. He cited an incident in which his daughter was forced to learn evolution in school."

This is why the ID people will never win a court case, because everybody knows that it's not a problem with the science, it's a problem with the religion, and espousing a specific religion in school is a no-no.

/that second bit isn't directed at you Marcus

This is the worst thing, for me. In an attempt to create more religious freedom he's going to insist that kids are forced to learn nothing but what his religion says?

Does he not see the problem there? Has no one pointed it out to him?

Hmm, since Darwin gives credit to God for being just really darn amazing for making evolution happen in the last paragraph of the book, he would have a hard time with that...

But then again, he is a hospital admin, being who rarely if ever evolve past pond slime.

I'm sure there are plenty of details in The Origin of Species that have been challenged by legitimate scientists - I mean the book is a century and a half old.  But the main theory is universally accepted.

It's quite simple.  His beliefs are the One True Religion(tm), and all other beliefs are heresy.

MY god was able to make the big bang and not have to do a single thing after that.

Indeed.  Once creationist so much as admitted that of course inheritable traits that increase an organism's ability to leave behind lots of viable descendents would become more common in the gene pool--and dismissed it as a tautology.
