    Fortunately, Texas` influence on the overall market for textbooks is being significantly impacted by digital formatting. It used to be that whatever way Texas went with their textbooks, so went the rest of the country (due to Texas` market share). Fortunately, digital formatting makes changes and additional versions, etc., very easy to write, edit, proof and publish.

    Doesn`t mitigate the extreme stupid outlined in this story, but at least it`s not *quite* as influential as it once was. Now Texas is mainly just hurting their own kids` educations.

    We are better than this, we have been taken over by the religious right of our republican governor. He`s into cronyism and finding his political donors great jobs on his team. We, I, feel like we`ve seen the last of the new century, the 1950`s are moving in. Down with Perry!

    If theyre going to put creationism in the Biology books. Which myth are they going to include and from which religion. Through out history there are hundreds of creation myths and as far as scientific evidence supports them All are equally valid. Infact there is far more evidence to support the Hindu religion`s creation myths than the Judeo-Christian myth of God creating the world in 6 days and Man and women on 2 seperate contradictory occasions.

    Let me get this out of the way immediately:
    Oh well! 2 out of 3 ain`t bad... (he`s an IDIOT! Just fyi...)

    "Creationism" should be included in textbooks! Just like Tiamat, Quetzalcoatl (MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!) and 100 other "creation theories".

    Seriously? Hopi Creation Stories are my favorite! There`s 10-15 variations but mostly they`re REALLY great! Quetzalcoatl shows up later... in some of them... he`s really cool, mostly...

    @SmagBoy1: You make a valid point! I`d add that California and New York also play heavily on "textbook content" but yeah, that`s still an intelligent insight into the situation!
    ~takes off his hat~

    @emmettyville: Yes! Darn tootin! He argues against one "faith" while spouting another = BullPoop!

    @Dead-Kittens: Also yes! Just teach them ALL! What`s the fuss? Oh I forgot: the LEFT only wants ONE thing taught, THEIR idea. No others need apply...

    @Essersmith: No, @CrakrJak is on record as NOT being into that stuff. Doesn`t stop the "IAB Liberal Brigade" from REPEATED FALSE ACCUSATIONS though...

    @HolyGod and @madest: He has said no, point blank, yet you continue to LIE ABOUT IT.
    What does that say about you two? Or are you actually the same person??? Hee hee hee...

    @QueenZira and @TheZigRat: YES! Put them ALL IN! Who opposes that? The liberal left!!! Irony eh?

    What the f.uck are you babbling about now?

    HolyGod: "You and I finally disagree on something."

    What "he" are you referring to? What did we "LIE ABOUT"?

    Now I can`t even parse through your stupid and crazy to figure out what point you think you are making.

    @HolyGod: In a recent post, Mr.Madest blurted out the accusation that @CrakrJak was a "6000 Year Earth Creationist" DESPITE being told 100 times BY @CrakrJak otherwise.

    I then speculated that you and Mr.Madest were one and the same person ;-) Because you both flog dead horses to death!

    I am, of course referring to YOUR slanderous accusation on another thread, along with @madest`s continued slanders.
    Is that "too complicated" for you to understand?
    I was referencing in in reply to @Essersmith`s question.

    What the f.uck are you babbling about now?
    With your following "quotes" I ask you the same!
    @madest: Talking about Texas.
    @HolyGod: Talking about @davymid (with regards to Texas)
    WTH?

    @5Cats: Talking about overall patterns of abuse.

    See? Both you and @madest continually say the same thing DESPITE the truth being continually told to you.

    It`s as plain as the face attached to your nose:

    YOU have no idea what the heck you`re talking about.

    BUT YOU KEEP ON TALKING!

    What "he"? Learn the English language please!
    The last "he" refered to in my post is... @CrakrJak (noun) so DUH that`s the "he" invoked.

    This is really simple stuff, dude. You smoke the pot like @madest does? Like, a LOT of pot?

    I`m SO FREAKING SORRY that the IAB character count forces many abbreviations and for-shortenings! TOO BAD if you`re too "slow" to keep up, boy.

    Goto /4/chan/ or whatever it`s called to talk to your "intellectual peers"... Nit picker! Horse flogger!! Subject changer!!!

    Ah, I feel... refreshed! :-)

    Hahahaha.

    You are so full of s.hit.

    Someone ELSE on here accused Crakr of being a young earth creationist.

    Neither Madest nor I said anything about it.

    But instead of being a man and admitting you made a mistake you say that it was because of something we may have said in ANOTHER post? Jesus Christ. You are a sad little man.

    "Subject changer!!!"

    I take a shot at texas and you start calling me a liar for things I didn`t even say about crakr? Then I`M the subject changer? You are such a joke.

    Neither Madest nor I said anything about it.
    On THIS post? That`s true, yes. Did I SPECIFY "on this post"?? NO I did NOT. What`s your problem?

    @madest has repeatedly, for a very long time now, openly accused @CrakrJak of being "a 6000 year creationist" despite repeated denials from @C. And also a retard, his favorite word!

    So: If you really have never "weighed in on" that discussion? I apologize for mistaking you for another.
    And the whole "madest = HolyGod" just seems funny to me! And still isn`t disproven... ;-)
    (Note: That is a JOKE, ok? Don`t get your knickers in a knot over it! I don`t actually care if you are two people or not, really I don`t!)

    Only female underage horses... I`m not GAY!

    (See: That`s another joke! Sad day when I have to spoon-feed an IAB person who cannot or will not understand things...)

    He has said no...

    I have seen what happens when they put crationalism in Biology classes. Where I live the schools were forced to teach from a book called "Of Pandas and People" a creationalist book back in the late 1980`s and with pressure from the conservitive and ultra religious it is the only text book they are allowed to use. Most of the scientific facts such as mitosis, ect are no longer tought in these schools let alone forbidden subjects such as evolution or sexual reproduction or even natural selection. The biology students have no concept of how a virus or microbe might mutate over a few generations to form a new strain. In fact the biology idiology being tought is more in line of the 1690`s era of thought. Then the schools wonder why they are falling behind in academics.

    "Only female underage horses... I`m not GAY! "

    I never said male horses! Not once!

    Do you know how infuriating this is? I make a simple statement, that you like to have sex with young horses. Then instead of simply replying to that you make up something I NEVER EVEN SAID and start arguing against THAT.

    If you make up my statements and your statements I guarantee you`ll win every argument. But hey, whatever helps you sleep at night (obviously a soft bed of hay in a discreet windowless barn).

    @HolyGod: But you weren`t SPECIFIC!
    I never had sex with underage MALE horses, but someone reading your accusation MIGHT draw that false conclusion!

    If you blather on about non-specific nonsense? Don`t be alarmed if someone, occasionally, misunderstands you!

    I apologize for mistaking you for another.
    Rather than your two names. My mistake!

    Perhaps those needed to be IN ALL CAPS since you (apparently) don`t actually read what I type before `spouting off` about it...

    Then instead of simply replying to that you make up something I NEVER EVEN SAID and start arguing against THAT.

    So... the term "playing along" is an anathema to you? Like a foreign language or something? Oooo-kay then!

    So me continuing to play along went over your head. SHOCKING. I`m aware that you were being a good sport and playing along when you replied "seriously", that is why I returned the favor as if we were arguing seriously.

    I can be very literal at times, I`ll admit it! In real life too, I mean.

    And sarcasm (or other subtle forms of humour) are easily lost on the internet, yes?

    The barn can have windows, anyone who "peeps" is a pervert too! ;-) No worries!

    Yes. I agree. But holy s.hit. No matter how much we disagree I`d like to think you know that I`m not truly insinuating that you have sex with horses. So ANYTHING I say on the subject is a joke.

    Was my "hamburger joke" on this thread or the Catgirl thread?

    "I like hamburgers too, but I`d never have sex with one!"

    Applies to horses, cats, cars, trees, most inanimate objects...
