A Montana legislator is pushing a bill in the state house to reintroduce creationism to the state’s public school science classes.
Rep. Clayton Fiscus, R-Billings, said evolution isn’t settled science and called it a “monumental leap” to believe it is true. His bill would allow teachers – if they want – to address perceived weaknesses in evolution studies in the classroom.
“This is just a bill to instruct what we have presently in the science on the origins of life,” Fiscus said. “We should teach what we do know. We should also teach what we don’t know.”
Yeah, evolution is a “monumental leap,” whereas the bit about the talking snake is a proven scientific fact. Got it.
