Wrong. Political arguments are designed to get people to do 
or not do something they would not do or do otherwise.  In this 
case, create unity among those who get up every morning scared 
to death of the God they are told created them 1000 years ago 
by telling them He is really an intelligent old fellow and told 
Noah to load two of the dinosaurs on the Ark with the rest of 
his incest-ridden family.

It's boobery.  That 45% of the American voters are scared and 
easily made more scared is proof of the depth of the damage done 
by the boobs.

NO.  It'w wrong.  It puts superstition in the place of the scientific 
method.  It asks us to surrender inquiry to belief because the problem 
is tooo hard.  It scales for the same reason as presented for the web: 
it is easy.  But this isn't a technology; it is surrendering the education 
of our children and the future of our nation to self-optimizing,
undereducated, over-monied boobs who are sending our sons and daughters 
to the ends of the earth to kill and maim others in the name of their 
booby leaders.  But worst of all, it uses God as the excuse.  WWJD? 
The rough short stocky Jewish carpenter would take a board and ram 
it up their collective asses and then push them into the business end 
of a fully-engaged 757 turbine engine so the blades could dispose of 
their boobery and boobisms post haste.

Is that clear?  This isn't benign.  This is a fight for children 
who cannot be made to bow down to these hideously perverse people 
and their agenda to mask grabs for power with piety.

There is no issue of democracy here.  You don't get to vote on the 
design of the 757 engine and you don't get to vote on the means 
and processes of evolution.  You can investigate, hypothesise, 
experiment, observe, record, publish and repeat, but otherwise, 
take your faith to your church, synagogue, mosque or temple and 
I am with you, but push it into a science curriculum, and I am 
here with the carpenter, board in hand to ram it up your collection

That is an insidious message from pathetic liars whose 
faith is so weak that they want to rob science and democracy of its 
real strength to beggar a failing religion.

No compromise.  No controversy.  No bloody way.
