Creationists sue Texas after being ruled stupid

Well, that header is my definite thumbnail version.

Longer version? The Institute for Creation Research is suing the state of Texas after the Higher Education Coordinating Board denied it the right to offer graduate science degrees last year, saying its academics weren’t up to snuff.

I love people who are ignorant, often willfully so, of science, when they talk about evolution being “just a theory,” per some of the people commenting on the Morning News story.

Isaac Newton developed a “theory” of gravitation. I cordially invite you all to see if it’s “just a theory” by walking off the top of the TXU building here in downtown Dallas.

I’ll even give you a posthumous Darwin Award for the courage of your convictions.
