In a self-congratulatory bit of bloggery, the Texas "Freedom" Networkiacs made no effort to hide their anti-freedom agenda:
Of course, science is determined by research and evidence, not "freedom of choice." "Intelligent design"/creationism isn't supported by a shred of scientific evidence. So it's very good news that the review teams and education commissioner have rejected International Databases' materials.Oh yeah? Well science may not be a democracy, but democracy IS a democracy! And in a democracy, the majority rules! It doesn't matter one whit that the majority in this case is a thinly-veiled wedge strategy designed to surreptitiously insert unconstitutional religious instruction into the public-school curriculum - it's still the majority!
If Intelligent Design isn't valid science, why are people still arguing that it is valid science? If people are still debating, the debate isn't over, no matter how much the scientifical-arithmetical conspiracy wants to say it is.
Someone should tell the Texas "Freedom" Network that true freedom also means freedom from facts.
