Texas School Board in La-La Land


The Texas Board of Education apparently thinks that the age of the universe is something that can be voted on. Barbara Cargill apparently has been teaching science for over 20 years in Texas and is acting like her position on the Texas BOE allows her to decide the age of the universe. She comes across in the video as not accepting the current scientific consensus of the age of the universe and the expanding universe. It seems this science teacher fancies herself more knowledgeable than astronomers, geologists, physicists, etc.

You think that she would have learned a little bit about the scientific method in her 20 years of teaching science. But I guess not. Sorry dear, you're entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. What is it about the South? My home state of Louisiana seems to have more than its share of fantasy prone individuals like this. They act like all they have to do is wish for something to be true in order for it to be a reality.

And here's the video:



Pam mentions the legislating teaching of Pi as three instead of 3.14159... (Actually, Indiana tried this in the late 1800's). Here's one of my favorite cartoons:

I was on the internet (Mozilla Firefox) and I was just browsing then a message came up and said something like 'Windows defender needs you to restart your computer to solve a problem' so I clicked it and then it obviously restarted. I tried to log onto my user area and it took longer than usual to load up and when it finally loaded up it had a blank background and my documents, no task-bar or shortcut. The only way I got onto the internet was by going on my downloads going on Spotify and then clicking on an advert, for the past couple of days I've been getting warnings saying that I have a harmful virus so I clicked 'Remove' and it said it had gone but every hour or so it kept coming back up. Also I have Windows Vista. Sorry it's so long :( Happy New Year :) thanks :)
