Pete and Repeat go to…oh wait, this isn’t Fark.

Congrats to the Dover teachers for stepping up to the plate!!!

Now, to hit it out of the park, they should work on a 5 minute lesson plan which teaches the kids why “ID theory” and a century worth of creationism is anti-science crap of zero worth to biologists.

What could be unconstitutional about such a lesson plan?

Congrats to the teachers!!! Professional responsibility to teach science trumps personal concessions to please people.
