South Carolina Fills the Hall of Shame

Are there any politicians in South Carolina who believe in evolution? It doesn't seem like it. State superintendent of education hopeful Karen Floyd said she'll run in 2006 on an intelligent design platform. State Sen. Mike Fair wants to require schools to teach intelligent design, and he has support from U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis.

I wonder if, even in the more progressive parts of South Carolina, any politicians have the guts to stand up for evolution.

I find this anti-science trend very worrying.Particularily that it is making its way into political decision making and education. Intillegent design conjecture has no more place in the classroom than ufo theories like "Chariot of the Gods".
