…how can the people who work at a publisher in good conscience agree to write a biology textbook that treats evolution as a wild, unsupported idea? What if the Texas Board of Education demanded that their books discuss the “controversy” about whether the Earth travels around the sun or vice-versa, or the “controversy” about whether earthquakes happen because the turtle on whose back the world sits is scratching an itch, or the “controversy” about whether stars are actually faeries winking at us from up in the sky?
…surely there’s some level of deception aimed at children that the textbook publishers wouldn’t be able to live with themselves for propagating. I wonder where it is.
It’s an excellent question. I wonder where it is, too.
