Florida falls behind in crazies race. ... Which is good.

Remember how Florida just tried to pass a bill that was unpleasantly reminiscent of the old Texan 'Strengths and Weaknesses' anti-Evolution crap? Good news: it's a FAIL.

Anti-Evolution Bill Still A Fruitless Exercise

TALLAHASSEE - A bill aimed at undercutting acceptance of evolution in Florida science classes, which kicked up a fuss but didn’t pass in the Florida Legislature last year, apparently is going nowhere this year.

A Senate version of the bill has yet to receive a committee hearing and has no companion bill in the House.

That means, said one proponent of the idea, that the bill has little chance of passage in this frantic session, heavily devoted to cutting and balancing the state budget.

“With no companion in the House, it doesn’t have much likelihood,” said Rep. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla.

Another small battle won in the great war against Creationism. Next!
