I'm not sure how much 'settled science' is actually fact.

// yeah, the earth isn't flat but it's not round, either.

The other 33% are better teachers and know that science is never "settled?"

Any time I see the words, "Settled science", I know I'm dealing with people who are anti-science. When you've decided that an issue is closed because we know for a certainty that it's one way, it's not science any more, it's belief and dogma.

Well, he certainly did believe that white people are more advanced from an evolutionary standpoint than black people.

Opposition on the basis of pedantry to using the word 'settled' as shorthand for 'an abundance of evidence so overwhelming to render competing theories fanciful' in order to challenge the actual premise that evolution's evidence is so overwhelmingly more plausible and demonstrable than other explanations is the behavior of a fundamentally dishonest person.


Well, at one point in time, it was settled science that the Earth was flat and the center of the universe. Only science deniers use the term.

They're the poster children for regressive evolution.


Consequence of the local control of curriculum in the schools.  Much as I'm areligious and a big science fan, I wouldn't have it any other way.  Sure, there are downsides to local control of school curriculum, but think about this:

Do you want Donald Trump in charge of what your kids teachers are allowed to teach?

wejash: I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: They're actually the sportsball coach.

See, you think you're funny.

Our HS chemistry teacher was also the swim and water polo coach. He almost made the Olympic squad ..
And not for sciences.


Pfft. My school's football coach was the principal's son. He also taught "American Goverment", which he proudly proclaimed he got a D in in college.

Dumb as a bag of rocks, but the football team went to the state finals.  Priorities, people.

/full disclosure: I was in marching band and we went to state finals, too.
