    Wilmington is right in my backyard. Literally. I can see the Wilmington Hwy from where I’m sitting right now. Apparently the county is populated with morons:

    The Brunswick County school board is looking for a way for creationism to be taught in the classroom side by side with evolution.

    “It’s really a disgrace for the state school board to impose evolution on our students without teaching creationism,” county school board member Jimmy Hobbs said at Tuesday’s meeting. “The law says we can’t have Bibles in schools, but we can have evolution, of the atheists.”

    When asked by a reporter, his fellow board members all said they were in favor of creationism being taught in the classroom.

    [snip]

    Board attorney Joseph Causey said it might be possible for the board to add creationism to the curriculum if it doesn’t replace the teaching of evolution.

    Schools’ Superintendent Katie McGee said her staff would do research.

    Babson said the board must look at the law to see what it says about teaching creationism, but that “if we can do it, I think we ought to do it.”

    If the idiots on the school board do this, the ACLU will eat their lunch and the folks in Brunswick County will be paying big bucks for the privilege.

    LOL – in our neck of the woods the quickest way not to get elected to the school board is to admit to supporting evolution.

    If it wasn’t so sad, it would be funny listening to how candidates step around the fact that they believe in evolution.

    I ought to run. I’ve got a great side step.

    Q: Do you believe in the theory of evolution?
    A: No. sotto voce I accept evolution as the best scientific explanation for all of the many connections life forms, past and present, evidence. Belief has nothing to do with it. 🙂

    Thanks for the great laugh, and from an *expert* on Brunswick County at that. I needed that.

    “I can see Wilmington from my house” should indeed qualify Daryl to run for office. . .

    I think he may be overqualified.

    He actually has a coherent answer to the evolution question.

    I basically cross-posted this one to the Fayetteville Observer blog. I have a feeling the commenters over there will follow a slightly different path than you heathens over here. 🙂

    Well, considering they don’t even seem to know what evolution is — and isn’t — you’ve got your work cut out for you. 🙂

    Those comments are all you need to disprove “intelligent design.” 🙂
