The guy Arizona tapped to help with their public school science curriculum thinks that there was plenty of room for dinosaurs on the Ark.

Arizona Superintendent Diane Douglas tapped a young-earth creationist to serve last month on a committee tasked with revising the state’s science curriculum standards on evolution.

Joseph Kezele, the president of the Arizona Origin Science Association, is a staunch believer in the idea that enough scientific evidence exists to back up the biblical story of creation. Douglas appointed him to an eight-member special working group at the Arizona Department of Education that completed a final review of the draft evolution teaching standards on August 30.

Kezele teaches biology at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix. He advocates teaching his version of “established, real science” in classrooms.

Evolution, he said, is a false explanation for life and should be taught so that students “can defend against it, if they want to.”

“I’m not saying to put the Bible into the classroom, although the real science will confirm the Bible,” Kezele told Phoenix New Times in an interview on Wednesday. “Students can draw their own conclusions when they see what the real science actually shows.”

He argued that scientific evidence supports his creationist ideas, including the claims that the Earth is only 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs were on board Noah’s Ark.

I think that if the students are exposed to actual scientific evidence they will laugh this bozo right out of the classroom. 

The problem is that when you are young and an authority figure feeds you bullshit, especially bullshit backed up with official-looking textbooks, they tend to believe the bullshit. 

This is why America is falling so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to science and our ability to use our critical thinking skills. 

Stupid children become stupid adults, and stupid adults elect stupid people to run their country. 

And that boys and girls is how we got to where we are today.

    As Americans we have been heading back to the dark ages for some time. Of coarse, the religious entities that like to take advantage of tax free dollars and big airplanes haven’t helped. If you read Carl Sagan’s demon haunted world he talks about how he’s talking to a cab driver who keeps wanting to veer towards the supernatural. It’s kind of a thing with us as humans. We like to sit around the campfire and talk ghost. Back in the day when people were coming to consciousness in a slow and steady way, they kept finding these dinosaur bones and it befuddled them to no end because back then was about the time all the churches ran things. So it took a few brave and sometimes ostracized individuals to enlighten those that would hear, that there was life before our lives as human on this planet once. Now, you have this Trump thing in the white house and his constituents who want to catapult us back into the dark ages where the churches again have the upper hand. We all know they are just a white version of the mafioso.
    People are watching it before their eyes .Every day we have a president who denies reality. It’s a KGB method to overcome those that have fear and doubt in their minds about what reality really is. So now, just anyone can come out and spew bullshit and it’s accepted as truth? That’s where we are headed. But maybe it is nature’s way to winnow out those less discerning.

    “This is why America is falling so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to science and our ability to use our critical thinking skills.” You are so correct, Gryphen. The sort of nonsense these bible zealots want to introduce into your public education system would never be tolerated in other free thinking nations. Keeping my fingers crossed that when the White House idiot is removed from office we will see the ignorance he encouraged diminish.

    In the years to come it will be discovered the Ark had a Weather Channel satellite feed and GPS positioning to know when the flood was to occur..Oh wait, those were not needed since the world was flat. The animals could see the Ark like it was across the street

    FUCK TeXa$>”Texas State Board of Education votes to erase Hillary Clinton from history curriculum” “It was reported that the insane decision to re-write essential history was simply part of an overall effort to “streamline the state’s social studies curriculum.”

    In Texas “streamline” means get rid of information and people that don’t align with your political views.” “Members of the volunteer work group that made such recommendations to the 15-member board of education said the state has been forcing children to learn about “too many historical figures.”

    As a result, the volunteer work group graded historical figures and decided who was “essential” to learn about and who wasn’t.

      “$O, the volunteer work group was tasked with creating a rubric for grading historical figures to deem who was “essential” to learn about and who wasn’t. The group would ponder things like whether the historical figure triggered a watershed change or if he or she were from an underrepresented group.

      Clinton reportedly scored a five on the 20-point grading rubric, and Keller scored a seven.

      Though the vote on Friday was preliminary, the board, whose members are elected to represent specific geographical areas, is scheduled to cast a final vote on the decision this coming November.”

    I was raised in the Lutheran church, and my comeback to him would be, “define ‘real’ science,” then watch him sputter like the confederate flag dude.
    Religion and science are apples and oranges. He wouldn’t want me in his classroom, that’s for sure.

    This thinking results in works of art like Teen Mom OG.

    ““He is obsessed with sharks” “Terrified of sharks. He was like,
    ‘I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.’ He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It’s so strange, I know.”

    Heaven`s here on earth…
    Delusional Fairy: Absolutely so true and well said!! Tracy Chapman is a wonderful musical and humanitarian individual whose lyrics are so powerful. If only we the entire world could Wake-Up and understand who is factually behind this insanely planned New World (totally enslaving) Order” then just maybe… we the entire human-race can begin to understand and respect what true miracle of life we are all born to be living on this equally miracle of life sustaining planet… many thanks :-)

    Oh, for Christ’s sake (pardon the irony here)! Mr. Kezele, the origin of the universe or the Big Bang theory (what was then called the “hypothesis of the primeval atom”) was first proposed by Georges Lemaitre, a Catholic priest.

    Dinosaurs on the Ark? The animal crap alone would have sunk the boat, or did Noah’s family pull straws on who would get latrine duty?

    I forget where I saw the cartoon, but it depicts a scene of Noah’s Ark. In the foreground is the Ark, with the animals walking together two by two. At the end of the line are two T-Rex. One says to the other, “Oooh yeah!”

    Is Arizona fighting with Texas for #50 in education in the nation? Oh, excuse me. #52. I forgot Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
