McLeroy Lets the Cat Out of the Bagby
Watch this short clip of State Board of Education chairman Don McLeroy explaining the true motivation behind his two amendments to proposed Texas science standards dealing with common descent and natural selection:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKw-odMIKjU&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Etfn%2Eorg%2Fsite%2FPageServer&feature=player_embedded]
We’ll say this for McLeroy – he’s not trying to hide his intent. The purpose of his amendments is to cause kids to question the validity of the “two key parts of the great claim of evolution, which is common ancestry by unguided natural processes.” McLeroy – and by extension those who voted to support this amendment – want to convince students that evolution is not true.
And can we ask, if the natural process is not “unguided,” then who is guiding it?
