The volatile issue of teaching creation science in public schools popped up in the Alaska governor’s race this week when Republican Sarah Palin said she thinks creationism should be taught alongside evolution in the state’s public classrooms.
Palin was answering a question from the moderator near the conclusion of Wednesday night’s televised debate on KAKM Channel 7 when she said, ‘Teach both. You know, don’t be afraid of information. Healthy debate is so important, and it’s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both.’
Nice. And she can even use McCain as a specimen (hey-yo!).
The more I look into this lady, it looks like she’s a fundy reformer. Doing some good stuff on the corruption-side (well, one good thing).
Frankly, it seems she could do the U.S. the best work by staying in Alaska and fighting the oil companies there.
