In Louisiana, Loch Ness Monster Learns YOU!
Louisiana students have the ability to use state-funded school vouchers to attend private schools. That’s fine, on the surface. BUT … some of these private schools are teaching “science” classes using textbooks that use Nessie as proof that evolution is false and that the Biblical creation story is the only way onto the highway to heaven.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Their theory goes something like this: Plesiosaur gets flooded after not making it onto Noah’s Ark. Plesiosaur gets stranded in Scotland. Therefore, evolution is wrong.
I’m pretty sure this is not how you create the great scientifically literate nation of tomorrow. I think we can allow the creation story of the Bible to be taught in the right place at the right time without making a complete laughing stock of biology, no?
