A Bill proposed by Arizona Republican Senator Judy Burges would allow teachers in Arizona public schools to tell their students that they think global warming and evolution are “myths”, and introduce alternative explanations for those scientific topics.
This of course means that teachers will be allowed to use the “God did it” scientific theory in their science classrooms. The bill, SB 1213, uses some seemingly innocuous language, but much of it is the same boilerplate language that was used in bills in other states as a way to permit the teaching of creationism in public school science classrooms.
The language of the bill includes the phrase “scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses”, which has been a mainstay creationist theme that has been proposed for (and in Texas introduced into) the science curriculum in public schools in other states.
Burges, a card-carrying Tea Party member, once introduced a bill based on her and other members of the Tea Party’s belief that clean energy programs in Arizona are a plot by the United Nations to create a single world government in order to control people’s lives.
Or in other words, as they are fond of saying in Arizona… “You can’t spell CRAZY without R-AZ!”
