Critical Thinking Skills

In a story about two "critical analysis" bills now before the South Carolina Legislature, UPI reports:

"They'll tell you this only deals with science and intelligent design, and this is not true," Rep. Bob Walker, R-Spartanburg, told the newspaper. "What this is doing is asking that when we look at textbooks, we look at the process a textbook uses in teaching when it comes to critical thinking and analysis."

Last fall, Walker tried unsuccessfully to revise state biology standards to allow the teaching of alternatives to Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.

Where did these ultra-right ID advocates and legislators learn their contempt for the people of this country.
