Pandas Thumb - Wisconsin Bill to Ban Teaching of ID

If the language quoted is corrected, not only does ID get the big E, but a whole bunch of other pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo is in trouble there (so long as the bill passes).

:D  :D  :D

Yes, that bill is a good idea.
What was it again? IIRC. "Only testable ideas are allowed to be taught in science class". Hoorah!

I admit I'm not getting any sense of the political viability of this ploy. After all, people drop bills into the hopper all the time that have zero chance of ever being reported out of committee. They do this so that they can then wave their bill in the faces of their constituents and get re-elected.

I learned early on to ask "who wants this?" If the answer is, the speaker of the house, or some well-funded influential lobby group, then it's real. Otherwise, like 99% of what gets dropped in the hopper, it's campaign fodder only.

So who in the Wisconsin political machinery wants this?
