Senator earmarks funds for Creationist group

According to this source, Senator David Vitter, R-La, earmarked $100k in a spending bill for a Lousiana Creationist group that has challenged the teaching of Darwinian Evolution in the public school system.

The bill specifies the payment is “to develop a plan to promote better science education.”

So, I’m wondering – shouldn’t the scientific community have a say in the creation theory that’s going to be introduced into the science curriculum?

The reason I bring this up is because the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has a creation theory that also challenges Darwinian Evolution, and it is supported by more scientists than the one they’re planning to introduce. I guarantee it.

And we don’t need $100k. We’ll do it for free.

You can send Senator Vitter an email using this form.
