Normally I wouldn't think of posting something like this here, but this is so funny I almost spit out my coffee. My sincere apologies in advance to anyone who might take offense, but this is precisely the sort of thing that makes the rest of the country think Southerners are a bunch of inbred imbeciles. Paragraph #6 is priceless.

I think creationism vs evolution is going to be a new hot topic.
And, while I have been one of the first "yankee" folks to poke fun at the south (in the past, not now), it's not just the south that is doing this. I recall reading recently that something like this occured in Michigan or perhaps Wisconson.

There is also this article about some folks in Indiana. They want to rename route 69 to be less 'dirty'.

Unbelievable. It would almost be funny if it wasn't so scary. People are actually devoting considerable time and thought to this sort of thing...

I'll be giggling all day after reading those two articles. Welcome to "Jesusland".

If they want that sticker to say on school textbooks, I think they have to have the corresponding sticker placed on bibles in their churches:

"This Bible contains material on God and faith. The existence of God is a theory, not a fact. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."

I mean, if the churches expect to have influence over the material that is taught in schools, then they should be willing to accept influence from outside, as well. It's only fair.

About the interstate, they should be only be given two choices: It'll either stay 69, or they can change it to 666.

I love it. Of course, they should also do that with other holy books... And allow teaching of other creation stories along with the Judeo-Christian one(s)!

I can see this thread getting waaaaaaaaaayyy out of hand. Everyone here has there own beliefs and faiths about politics and religion, of whitch none should be ridiculed on a SPEAKER message board.

i like that very much peter.. great idea..

i will steal the tag-line from my wifes e-mail... she decided it was appropriate after 12 weeks of student teaching biology to 10th and 11th graders.

"We already have enough youths, how about a fountain of smart."

i dont know where she got it from, but its priceless...
