Freshwater Defense

For those of you who have been following the pending dismissal of a teacher from the Mount Vernon School District in Ohio, the defense has been revealed...he was just "teaching the controversy."

Evidently, burning crosses into the arms of your students is one way of doing that.

This whole thing reminds me of a quote from Martin Luther:
Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.
Given that mindset, is it any wonder that science is under attack from religious zealots?
