Tennessee Passes 'Monkey Bill' To Teach The 'Controversy' On Evolution And Climate Science

Here's a great opportunity for West Bend's Creationist/Denier/Dominionist/TeaPartier/Anti-Education School board to push, once more, to have evolution sidelined in science classes.

I double dare you.

The National Association of Biology Teachers, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, the American Institute for Biological Sciences, the Knoxville News Sentinel, the Nashville Tennessean, the National Association of Geoscience Teachers, the National Earth Science Teachers Association, the Tennessee Science Teachers Association, and all eight Tennessee members of the National Academy of Sciences oppose  the legislation.

The bill now goes to Gov. Bill Haslam (R-TN) for his signature.
Also on Monday, a bill to permit the display of the Ten Commandments in public buildings (HB2658) passed the Tennessee House by a vote of 93-9.
