Michigan Creationism Bill Evolves

You remember Rep. John Moolenaar, a Republican from Midland up in Michigan, not far from where RSR grew up. He's the one that wrote legislation requiring science teachers there to present competing theories to evolution and global warming.

That bill was defeated after reasonable people called attention to the fact that it would require public schools to teach religious theories about creation. Something the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional almost 20 years ago.

Now -- like Freddy -- Moolenaar is back. He doesn't want to teach creationism or intelligent design. Perish the thought. No, he wants to require teachers to use scientific methods to evaluate scientific theories.

Moolenaar's latest evolution of creationism was approved by the Michigan House Education Committee Wednesday, 15-2 after specific examples of global warming and evolution were removed.
