Evolution, Shmevolution!

My niece is graduating this weekend with a teaching degree from a school in New York State.  She says she can almost write her own ticket if she looks for a job in the deep south.

Maybe this is the reason:

In Alabama, a state PAC recently went on the air with an ad attacking one of the Republican gubernatorial candidates for supporting the teaching of evolution in schools and for saying that parts of the Bible aren’t true.

The candidate, Bradley Byrne, responded with a lengthy press release vehemently defending his belief in creationism and the infallible truth of the Bible.

“As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God,” Byrne wrote.  “As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books.  Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.”

This looks very bad to anybody with half a brain (not these guys).  If Alabamians want to compete in the global economy, they’ll need to get their minds out of the fourteenth century.

They can start by weeding out the morons running loose in Montgomery.
