Jake at Page One Kentucky has come out in opposition to a bill calling for "critical thinking skills, logical analysis, and open and objective discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of scientific theories" on the grounds that doing this things would "keep Kentucky’s kids dumber than rocks, once again, by denying evolution."
This is the language in a bill introduced in the Kentucky General Assembly by State Rep. Tim Moore (R-Elizabethtown), HB 169.
Apparently, Jake thinks that evolution would somehow suffer from the practice of critical thinking skills, logical analysis and objective discussion. We thought he had a higher view of evolution than that.
Alas, the things you have to give up in modern scientism.
The National Center for Science Ignora ..., er, I mean Education (NCSE), which is also on record as opposing critical thinking skills, logical analysis, and open and objective discussion, is once again ringing the alarm bells. But we are not surprised. This is, after all, the organization that employs Josh Rosenau, whose opposition to important mental skills is well documented.
