Some state legislators try to push Creationism into science classrooms by using coded language. For example, they say they want schools to teach the “strengths and weaknesses” of various scientific ideas. But South Carolina Republican Reps. Dwight A.

    Oh, oh, what about macromolecules?  Or how about the valency of carbon and life?

    No, no, let’s start with the properties of water that arise from the all-important hydrogen bond!  Have you ever considered what would happen if ice didn’t float?

  • I’v never been in the Sistine Chapel, and I had no idea that there were Raphaels in it.  Certainly a shortcoming in my education!  I’ve looked them up and I agree with you Laurie.  Besides which, who wouldn’t prefer Raphael to Michelangelo?
