And here we go again...This isn't lowering the bar, it's digging a trench and dropping the bar in. Reported by CTV, in an effort to garner the completely ignorant voting bloc, Ontario Conservative leader John Tory barks out this jet of dung gas,
"It's still called the theory of evolution," Tory said. "They teach evolution in the Ontario curriculum, but they also could teach the fact to the children that there are other theories that people have out there that are part of some Christian beliefs."
The comment thread over at CTV is a text book example of the gaping idiocy that infects the populace as soon as the great sky bully is questioned. For every rational voice there seems to be some jabbering loon decrying the tenets of common sense, harping on that because evolution is a "theory" that it shouldn't be taught either. Anyone with a scintilla of wit should be able to recognize that the "theory of creationism" and "intelligent design" are euphemisms for fantastical bull shit. If there is anything that justifies questioning the theory of evolution, it would be that the religious haven't been selectively bred out of the gene pool.
