7 days worth of rants & raves

Great idea!

There's been a story out in the last day or two about a court fight in Georgia. Seems some fools down there put warning stickers in science textbooks to let the poor students know that there are alternative theories to evolution. Creationism? Intelligent design? Whatever. Anyway, I saw a great idea on Boing Boing:
So here's my proposal. Let's allow the religious right to paste their stickers in all the biology texts they want so long as they affix the following text to each and every one of their Bibles: "This book contains material on Judeo-Christian theology. Judeo-Christian theology offers insight into the origin and meaning of life and is the basis for several of the world's great religions. But it does not encompass the full range of religious beliefs held sacred by members of our diverse American society. Moreover, this material is based on ancient texts, and significant errors may have been introduced through subsequent translations and omissions. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered."
Sheer genius.
