Teen Skepchick's Reality Checks

Teen Skepchick’s Reality Checks 3.21

The “Why do we still have apes if we came from them?” edition

Florida tries to insert “intelligent design” into the science curriculum. *facepalm* “Stephen Wise, chairman of the [Florida] Senate Education Committee, has resurrected legislation he authored in 2009 that calls for a ‘thorough presentation and critical analysis of the scientific theory of evolution.’ Wise’s bill failed to pass in 2009. The critical analysis approach originated at the Discovery Institute, a think tank that supports the teaching of intelligent design, which holds that evolution alone cannot explain life, which is so complex that it must have had a creator.” (via The Tampa Tribune)

New research indicates that human sex roles influences animal research. (via Physorg.com)

Sad news. World famous polar bear Knut died unexpectedly on Saturday. Post mortem to be performed today. (via Yahoo! News)

Hilarious satire that claims atheists are delusional. (via Punctuated Equilibrium)
