I suppose that these bills would make laws allowing the teaching of creationism in the science classroom along with evolution.
So what would the teachers say about creationism? Would they bring a Bible to class and contrast it with science and teach that the book of Genesis is an accurate account of the beginning of mankind? OK, lets say that they do this the first half hour, and the next half hour they would then discuss the evolution of man.
Talk about monkeys and bibles I think this would trigger some interesting science-class/Bible moments that might not be favorable to the right-wing extremists in Oklahoma. If I were a student, I might raise my hand and ask a few questions.
First half hour: How old is the earth?
Teachers answer: Approximately 4.6 billion years old.
Second half hour: How old is the earth? Teachers answer: As old as your preacher says it is.
Next day, first half hour: Which species evolved first? Man and woman or monkeys? Teachers answer: Monkeys, of course.
Second half hour: Which did God make first, man and woman or monkeys? Teachers answer: Man and woman in the Garden of Eden.
The next day, first half hour: Is evolution of the species a theory?
Teachers answer: It is a theory. Second half hour: Is creationism a theory? Teachers answer: Creationism is a fact, just like in the Bible.
Then you believe only in creationism? Teachers answer: Yes, Im going to run on the Republican ticket for the Oklahoma House of Representatives next year.
