You Know Who Else Banned the Teaching of Evolution?

No, not Hitler, ISIL (boldface mine):

The new Mosul curriculum, allegedly issued by al-Baghdadi himself, stresses that any reference to the republics of Iraq or Syria must be replaced with “Islamic State.” Pictures that violate its ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam will be ripped out of books. Anthems and lyrics that encourage love of country are now viewed as a show of “polytheism and blasphemy,” and are strictly banned.

The new curriculum even went so far as to explicitly ban Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution — although it was not previously taught in Iraqi schools.

Meanwhile, in the Great State of Louisiana, demonologist and Governor Bobby Jindal waffles, once again, on the issue of teaching creationism (boldface mine):

“The reality is I’m not an evolutionary biologist,” the Republican governor and possible 2016 presidential hopeful told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

“What I believe as a father and a husband is that local schools should make decisions on how they teach,” he said. “And we can talk about Common Core and why I don’t believe in a national curriculum. I think local school districts should make decisions about what should be taught in their classroom. I want my kids to be exposed to the best science, the best critical thinking…”

The reporter interrupted Jindal, a Rhodes scholar who studied biology and public policy at Brown University, to press him on the original question of whether he believes the theory of evolution reflects the best scientific thinking about life on Earth.

“I will tell you, as a father, I want my kids to be taught about evolution in their schools, but secondly, I think local school districts should make the decision,” he said.

First of all, you don’t have to be a professional biologist to accept the reality of biological evolution–I know he learned the basics of evolution at Brown. Second, just like education ‘reformers’ would never subject their children to the policies for which they advocate, Jindal wants his kids to learn about evolution. Creationism is for gulling the rubes.

Same as it ever was.

    The governor should insist on state standards for the curriculum and allow (or limit) local school boards to make decisions about local government (mayor, city council, etc and city form of governing).
