Good question, Barney. We’d like to know the chairman’s answer as well.
Barney was also seen handing out a flier with some advice for state board members. See Barney’s flier after the jump.
A flier being distributed by a lifesize purple dinosaur at the State Board of Education on November 19, 2008:
State Board of Education Chairman Don McLeroy
says there are many “weaknesses” of the theory of
evolution. He says that there are two systems of science:
“You’ve got a creationist system and a naturalist system.”
– New York Times, June 4, 2008
Creationism isn’t science. Let’s listen to scientists.
Physicists know that the universe is billions of years old.
Geologists know Earth is more that 4 billion years old.
Biologists know that life has evolved over eons.
Shouldn’t Texas kids know at least as much as a purple dinosaur?
