New Florida Board of Education Chair: “I won’t support any evolution being taught as fact at all in any of our schools.”

A surefire way to tell if someone is a liar and/or ignorant about science is if they say a scientific theory is “only a theory,” like it’s a guess or a hypothesis and not a factual framework. That’s exactly what Florida’s new Board of Education chairman, a citrus farmer named Andy Tuck, said about the theory of evolution when he was the vice-chairman:

“As a person of faith, I strongly oppose any study of evolution as fact at all. I’m purely in favor of it staying a theory and only a theory. I won’t support any evolution being taught as fact at all in any of our schools.”

Tuck was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott.

  1. This religious crap has got to stop!

    They refuse to prove their gods – knowing full well that they cannot – so they deflect by attacking the sciences – which have no need of any gods!

  2. I have no problem teaching the theory of evolution as a theory
    So long as science is taught and explained and students understand the difference between a scientific theory and a fairy story

  3. I am targeted by FB!

    7 times x30 days immediately following each other,
    FB blocks me stating that I am offending religions
    (3 times within seconds by an algorithm)

    (FB states that it will defend religions automatically for respectful discussions in religions.
