A Texas legislator is waging a war of biblical proportions against the science and education communities in the Lone Star State as he fights for a bill that would allow a private school that teaches creationism to grant a Master of Science degree in the subject.
State Rep. Leo Berman (R-Tyler) proposed House Bill 2800 when he learned that The Institute for Creation Research (ICR), a private institution that specializes in the education and research of biblical creationism, was not able to receive a certificate of authority from Texas' Higher Education Coordinating Board to grant Master of Science degrees.
TVNL Comment: Science? This is science? Some guy just made everything in six days and left us some rules. That's it? The ultimate conspiracy "theory" is considered science in Texas! Proof? No. But it must be true because so many people believe it! It's even on TV!
