Today I received in the mail my latest t-shirt: Darwin '08! With all the candidates scrambling to show that they are religious (ironically except McCain), I felt that it is important to remember that science education is also affected by politics. When did you last hear a candidate emphasize the importance of science education apart from economics? I am shocked at how many of my students either reject evolution out right or consider it as one of several viable possibilities to explain how life has progressed on the earth. Inevitably, these discussions lead me to sigh and admit that "I need a beer..."
In any case, the New York City Skeptics are selling these sweet t-shirts for the low, low price of only $18. Get 'em while you can!
