Here’s an article in the My Clay Sun section of the Times-Union about the Clay County anti-evolution resolution approval. The board members clearly made themselves out to be clueless about science, and they didn’t seem to care if everyone knew it. Additionally, they whine about the resolution not really having an effect. If that’s the case, then why bother with it, folks?
Though he voted for the resolution, board member Wayne Bolla said he didn’t think there is a difference in the word concept and theory.
Flagler College student Kristine Hoppenworth of Middleburg was in tears after the vote.
“They weren’t clear on what they were voting about,” she said. “They are not listening to the public, not listening to the experts. I think it is reducing the study of science to school board politics.”
