Wayne Stayskal Is A Hack
First off, if I was a teacher I would send that little smart ass to the corner too.
Though aside from the poor concept, he's obviously trying to make a political point. For those of you who don't know intelligent design is what the religiously insane want taught in schools. It basically says that children should not be taught science in school because science is so complicated that it doesn't exist. So schools have the option of teaching "the Earth goes around the sun" or "the Earth goes wherever the magic man wants". Most schools choose to teach science. That's where Stayskal gets his idea for his cartoon. His cartoon basically says 150 years of science reaserarch and fossil records are all lies and have no place in the school. He uses no evidence to to back up this claim. So, as I said in the title, Wayne Stayskal is a hack.
