Palin is going to do more for education than Piltdown Man. Inspired by an article from – The York Daily Record

September 8, 2008

 Palin is going to do more for education than Piltdown Man.

The Piltdown Man was ‘discovered’ and offered up to the public at the turn of the 20th century. For a generation Piltdown was the ‘ missing link’, the affirmation of the true scientific fact of evolution.  However, analysis and time revealed Piltdown was a fabrication of a Darwinist zealot who joined a human skull with an ape jaw. Piltdown turned out to be a fabrication.  Many students in Universities during heydays of Piltdown were being taught ‘evolution’ as scientific fact.  They have grown needing to affirm the validity of their evolutionary science rather than engaging the scientific debate. The educated prodigy of the Piltdown era now insist that evolution is scientific fact.

I believe Palin’s approach will stand much better because it allows people to decide based on the best information/science available.  Simply forcing students to drink evolution or creationism ‘kool aid’ is not science. 

Yeah Palin!  I agree with Palin’s Stance.  Now the article that percolated this posting from yours truly.

Responding to a request for clarification of Palin’s stance, a spokesman sent a list of news stories from when she was governor. Based on quotes in those stories, it appears Palin believes children should be allowed to talk about alternatives to evolution in class, but does not believe creationism or intelligent design should be part of a mandatory curriculum.
