Now its in my backyard. What do you guys think about tagging the movement:
"intelligent design creationism"? Fair or unfair?
>In Fairfax County Virginia, there are three at-large candidates for the
>school board who support teaching intelligent design creationism in Fairfax
>County public schools.
>The issue is sure to come before the board over the next four years, as it
>has in Ohio, Georgia, Texas and elsewhere. Given how carefully intelligent
>design creationists avoid explicitly mentioning God or religion, we may not
>be able to count on the courts to defend science education.
>The next phase of the battle is going to be at the school boards.
>All three of these candidates are well-funded, and endorsed/aided by a major
>political party (the Republican party in this case.) It will be a lot easier
>to keep these people off the school board, then to attempt to convince them
>to change their deeply felt views once they are in office.
>The creationist candidates are: Rita Thompson, Nell Hurley and Steve Hunt
>The pro-science education candidates are: Janet Oleszek, Illryong Moon, and
>The three candidates with the most votes join the board, along with district
>I encourage any one who cares about good science education for our children
>to support the pro-science education candidates - either at the ballot box,
>financially, or by spreading the word to mainstream voters.
>Please help Fairfax County avoid being taken over by creationist activists!
>Support the following mainstream candidates.
>Ilryong Moon School Board At Large Candidate - Pro-science education
>Janet Oleszek School Board At Large Candidate - Pro-science education
>10500 Indigo Lane, Fairfax, VA 22032, 703-323-1771
>Lynn Terhar School Board At Large Candidate - Pro-science education
>PO Box 230462, Centreville, VA 20120 703-631-2238
>P.S. I suggest always referring to this new fake-science as
>intelligent design creationism, and not just intelligent design,
>to highlight the connection that they are trying to blur.
