This won’t come as a surprise to anyone, but Kentucky is officially stupid. Back in 2009, the legislature in Kentucky passed a law that made it easier to compare student performance within Kentucky with students in other states.
Then they got the results. Kentucky is downright stupid. See, there’s this funny thing that they didn’t realized in science classes, kids actually have to know about evolution and Kentucky students just don’t understand it.
But instead of joining reality and teaching kids what they’re supposed to know, legislators from Kentucky are asking that special SAT and ACT tests be made up just for Kentucky that eliminates all questions on evolution. The people responsible for the tests replied in the negative, taking the nicer response that it would be too expensive and time consuming to make a new test just for them. Let’s be honest though, what they really meant was “fuck off, you ignorant hicks, join the 21st century!”
I’m really surprised some of these people can manage to keep on breathing on their own. Representative Ben Waide said:
The theory of evolution is a theory, and essentially the theory of evolution is not science — Darwin made it up. My objection is they should ensure whatever scientific material is being put forth as a standard should at least stand up to scientific method. Under the most rudimentary, basic scientific examination, the theory of evolution has never stood up to scientific scrutiny.
Hey Ben, too bad you don’t even listen to the experts in your own state who probably face-palmed as soon as they saw your idiocy. Take Vincent Cassone, chairman of the University of Kentucky biology department:
The theory of evolution is the fundamental backbone of all biological research.
There is more evidence for evolution than there is for the theory of gravity, than the idea that things are made up of atoms, or Einstein’s theory of relativity. It is the finest scientific theory ever devised.
Sorry Ben, guess you’re just wrong. No surprise there, maybe you should have spent more time paying attention to science and less time with your nose in a Bible. Science works, bitches and nothing… NOTHING fails like science.
I guess you shouldn’t ask questions if you really don’t want to know the answers.
