Ohio Call to Action

| 12 Comments | 1 TrackBack

ID Creationists on Ohio’s Board of Education are renewing their attack on Evolution, and adding attacks on climate science, cloning & stem-cell research. Please write to Ohio’s Board of Education TODAY to urge them to follow through on their Feb directive –Resolution 31. Vote against additional creationist language in Ohio’s science standards!

Resolution 31 removed intelligent design creationism’s disingenuous “critical analysis” from Ohio’s science standards & lesson plans, and directed the OBE’s Achievement Committee to determine whether replacement language was needed. It has been over 6 months and the Achievement Committee still has not voted. While they’ve dawdled, creationist activists on the Board have been developing a “teach the controversy” proposal on the side that is on the Achievement Committee agenda for next week’s meeting.

What you can do below the fold:

DefCon warned today of an impending Monday sneak attack.



How meaningful are letters/emails from out of state?

This appeared on Ken Ham’s blog today:


Mike Riddle reports:

Last week Dr. David Menton and I were at the Muskoka Baptist Conference grounds. It is in a beautiful setting 2 hours north of Toronto, Canada. We each gave six different lectures over the week. Many people came to all 12 sessions demonstrating that Canadians are hungry to hear God’s Word defended from the very first verse.

We heard comments that ranged from “Thank you for teaching us and helping us defend our faith with others” to “I’ve never heard anything like this before.” Following one evening session Dr. Menton held a Q &A session that lasted for over 2 hours. Following another session on cloning, stem cells and abortion people were in tears from understanding the reality and horror of abortion and embryonic stem cell research. In addition to hearing the information, people were eager to purchase materials. There were an incredible number of people signing up to receive the new Answers Magazine.

While the location was in Canada, it might just as well have been Ohio. Obviously this type of thing is influencing a lot of people there as well !

We’ve been aware of that possibility for several weeks. Discussion of Resolution 31 is mentioned in the agenda for the Achievement Committee meeting on Monday Sept 11. It is not (yet) on the agenda of the Board as a whole (it would appear on the Tuesday agenda). We have been in contact with Board Members about it and we will have people at both the committee meeting and board meeting. Thanks!

They help, because they send the message that this is not a purely Ohio issue. Again, polite but firm. Thanks!


Perhaps these educators should read this article from abcnews.com What’s Wrong With Creationist Probability . Maybe someone from Panda’s Thumb could post this and make sure our friends at Uncommon Descent are aware of it.

Send Liz Craig and Jack Krebs over.

They are experts in personal attack.

“Send Liz Craig and Jack Krebs over.

Ah, the Jack Krebs fan club drives by. AGAIN. (Or maybe they should be called stalkers?)


That you again, JB?

We get trolls quite frequently at the KCFS Discussion Forums. One of them apparently believes Jack Krebs and I are experts in personal attack.

If that troll (whose identity I can guess with reasonable certainty) is still reading comments here (which I doubt), I invite presentation of evidence that either of us has done any such thing.

Evidence or retraction. Oh, I forgot. That would be the honorable thing to do. What in the world was I thinking?

I’m thinking about sending a thank you letter to the creationists on the board. If they dumb down things enough in Ohio, maybe we’ll start getting more jobs here in Michigan.

By all means, put KCFS behind the Ohio struggle.

Harry MacDonald should be able to give a testimony about how much his association with KCFS helped.

It really did!
