Creation Science/Intelligent Design Propaganda in Rogers High School?

Posted By on Fri, Feb 13, 2009 at 2:05 PM

Darrel Henschell of the Fayetteville Freethinkers reports that:

A senior high student at Roger's High School has reported on our Fayetteville Freethinker board that a biology teacher has had the class watch Ben Stein's "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed."

And no, it wasn't an exercise in discerning what propaganda looks like.

The student observes:

"He [the teacher] denies any evidence of fossils between reptiles and birds (even after I handed him an article discussing several) and probably all other fossils. The man claims that apparently the only eight* ancestors of men's fossils have been disproven, or something like that. He also made the argument from authority, "I can't believe you're arguing with a biology teacher about this."
