In Honor


An observer from PBS recently speculated to what Rosa Parks is looking at in the above photograph. After several ideas he ended by saying that Ms Parks was looking at a white male, any white male: young, old, bigoted, progressive, poor, or affluent it need not matter. And as she looked at him, she thought of how her actions as the catalyst to the Civil Rights movement would ultimately free him to think rightly of African Americans. For that I say thank you Rosa Parks, your legacy will be honored.

In case anyone is curious, yesterday Kansas passed the amendment requiring the teaching of ID alongside evolution. Details here: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2005/nov/09/criticism_evolution_added_science_standards/?evolution

Indeed they did. I'm going to write more about it on my Xanga blog, if you're interested. It should be up later today or tomorrow.

Indeed. They had a nice blurp about her on NPR. She was quite the activist till the end of her days.

I saw there is going to be a federal case for Intelligent Design in Pennsylvania. Do you ever feel like we are going backwards? What about Native American creationism and the numerous others?

What is wrong with teaching students the several different religious views about the origin of the earth? We could teach them the Native American legends, Greek mythology, Christian creationism, and so on. It could fill the gap of, perhaps, what caused evolution.

Again, I ask, what is wrong with teaching all these different ideas?
