My kids watched Bill Nye the Science Guy when they were little. As many of you know, he’ll be debating creationist Ken Ham tonight. I’m going to make sure my 15-yo watches, so he can decide for himself what he thinks about the argument. Here’s the link if you and your kiddos would like to see it live tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET.
I’m hoping that Texas’ candidates for Lt. Governor will be watching the debate, too, since they all want creationism in the schools (or so they say). I’m a little suspicious that perhaps they’re just pandering to the Tea Party. I mean, what are the odds that four….errrr…intelligently designed men would be in favor of teaching myth in science class?
One last thing, while I have your attention. I was truly saddened for this mother of two boys who lost them both to gun violence within a week. I know that Oakland is known as America’s worst city for crime, but there must be something we can do to help that city and our fellow citizens. I don’t care if it’s the churches that reach out and mentor these kids involved in gangs. They obviously need attention and intervention when they’re young. If anyone has and ideas, I’d love to hear them.
