The new dark age

We have definitely entered a new dark age. Read this:

Next week, the religious right will take a bold new step in its campaign against science education in America. The creationist organization, Answers in Genesis, will open its $27 million "Creation Museum" in northern Kentucky. The Disney-like museum is dedicated to promoting the falsehood that science supports the notion of men and women cavorting with dinosaurs on a 6,000-year-old Earth.

From denying the facts of evolution to lying about the known age of the universe, the "museum" represents an assault on our children's basic understanding of fundamental scientific principles.

Please sign the petition to voice your opposition to the religious right's campaign of ignorance.

If you're an educator - a teacher, a professor, an academic administrator - please take a stand against this latest attack on science education by signing the
special educators' petition.

Please click through and sign the petition. And stand up for legitimate science education every chance you get.
