In South Carolina This Is A Science Test


Yesterday I poked a little fun at the people of Tennessee for their continuing reelection of anti-LGBT, pro-NRA, delusional wingnut Stacey Campfield, but today I’m gonna aim the spotlight on South Carolina.

This is a test, in a science class at a school In South Carolina; ALLEGEDLY. The “test” was reportedly given to a fourth grade class at a Christian school somewhere in this state. The man, whose daughter was given this test, says he will reveal the name of the school in June because next year his child will be going to a real school where science is fact not fiction.

Oy. South Carolina. Really?

PS: for what it's worth, Snopes rates this story as 'probably true.'

i did get to teach real science in catholic school. i had one student who was a creationist opt out of a test, and her grade reflected it even after bullying from the parent. i was so glad to have a supportive administrator behind me on that one.

point being, if the catholics can figure it out, it must be pretty obvious that the bible's timeline is not a literal one....

This is so damn frightening! But perhaps it explains why uneducated stupid voters put uneducated stupid people in political offices. I've always wondered how some of them got elected - well, just maybe this explains it.
