Well, the Darwinists are certainly up in a tizzy over Chris Comer resigning from her position as the director of science curriculum of Texas. Yes, she resigned; she wasn’t fired as some Darwinists are claiming. That’s not all they are claiming either. Apparently, the Darwinists are convinced that she was “fired” because she dared to believe in evolution and her superiors are all dyed-in-the-wool creationists that are secretly plotting to take over the world. I wonder if there’s any evidence for this. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Texas Science Curriculum Director Canned for Mentioning Evolution
That’s the title. You know it’s going to be bad when there’s two falsehoods in the title alone. Anyway, the evidence?
Huh, there isn’t any. Oh well, let’s try the next one.
Here’s how much officials at the Texas Education Agency (TEA) hate evolution: They hate it so much that TEA staff members can now be forced out of their jobs merely for telling people about a speech by a noted opponent of “intelligent design” (ID).
So they claim, so where’s the evidence to back up such a claim?
In an effort to cover the agency’s butt, TEA officials drummed up some other reasons that Comer had to be let go. But they all sound picayune — because they are picayune. Let’s be clear about what happened: It is 2007, and the woman was fired because she dared suggest that some people might want to hear a speech backing the teaching of evolution.
More allegations, but no evidence so far. Well, maybe the next source will have some. Let’s see.
But the truth is that Comer, who has decades of experience as a science teacher and had been director of science for the Texas Education Agency for nine years, was shown the door.
Her indiscretion was sending out an e-mail in November that informed readers about a lecture in Austin to be given by a prominent supporter of evolution. In turn, this spurred disciplinary action by TEA officials who accused her of misconduct and, most tellingly, for taking sides against intelligent design.
Again, more allegations, any evidence of those allegations?
Huh. So, wait, you mean there’s no evidence what-so-ever of this nefarious plot to destroy evolution in favor of creationism in Texas, yet the Darwinists “know” that Comer was “fired” for believing in evolution?
I think there’s two things going on here. First, I think the Darwinists are acting out their well-known tendencies to attack anyone or anything they see as a threat to their worldview. Second, I think the evolutionists are trying to play the “You creationists are just as bad as us” game after the documented evidence of Gonzalez being denied tenure from ISU because of his link to ID science came to light. The Darwinists are desperate to try to get one back on those that threaten their worldview.
Of course, the most glaring part of this is that the ID advocates have brought evidence to this battle while the Darwinists have not. It sort of reminds me of the scientific debate where ID advocates are increasingly using evidence and logic while Darwinists are clinging to fallacious thinking, power plays, and a distinct lack of evidence.
