Former Texas State Board of Education chair Don McLeroy testifies before the board on September 17, claiming that the theory of evolution is so "weak" that it actually proves a literal interpretation of the Bible.

He is right. The lack of proof supporting evolution theory supports the Creation theory. Even Darwin admitted there was a huge hole in his theory.

You would think, finding the missing link, would have been big news.

Why stop with evolution? Why not question the validity of mitosis? Are spindle fibers real or are they God's Magical Wands?

Don McLeroy is a fool. But to be fair, he hasn't been on the TBOE in over 2 years. There is still alot of superstitious chicanery over there, but McLeroy isn't one. He's standing up to the experts in the comment sections of online blogs.

Why am I not shocked? lol

Evolution is real whether you want to believe it or not. Evolution has been proven.


Creationism has not been proven.

BTW, evolution goes far beyond Darwinism. DNA wasn't even discovered until the 1950s. Nearly 70 years after Darwin died.

Get a clue.

Creationism has no place in schools? Isn't education about exploring all views?
