Texans have always been very independent people. After their war of independence against Mexico in 1839, the Texans have always been proud of being Texans first, Americans second. Well this also applies to their brains, it looks like.
Barbara Cargill, a born again Christian and a staunch Creationist, who by the way is a member of the Board of Education in Texas, proposed an ammendment on the study of astronomy in schools, saying that the universe is not expanding and that is only 6,000 years old!
ARE THIS PEOPLE STUPID?...Oh I forgot...they are Texans! This is the place that gave us George W. Bush, the worst president in US History!
Of course, this born again christians don't care that solid scientific proof shows that the Universe is not only expanding from the Big Bang but is expanding at an alarming rate and it's older than 6,000 years old!
Damn those American Born-Again Christian Jerks! They are giving Christians everywhere a bad name and reputation!
To prove my point, here's the video of the meeting where this piece of crap ammendment was introduced.
BTW it was approved 11 to 3!
