Meet Maine’s new education commissioner: He thinks creationism belongs in schools. Maine’s governor, Paul LePage, just appointed Bill Beardsley as Maine’s acting education commissioner for the next six months. If LePage wishes, he can appoint Beardsley for the position permanently. Perhaps even more worrisome is that both LePage and Beardsley agree that Maine’s young should be taught creationism alongside evolution in public school. When both men ran for governor in 2011, this was a scene that actually unfolded at a debate. Asked “Do you believe in creationism, and do you think it should be taught in Maine public schools?,” LePage impressively backed up his creationist belief: “I would say intelligence, uh, the more education you have the more knowledge you have the better person you are and I believe yes and yes.”



Beardsley simply replied: “I would teach creationism.”

This is example of why our education system is going down. I mean we have a man who wants teach kids that unscientific facts are real.

Where are headlines school/college hires socialist teacher.I'd have have a creationist teach my kid than a socialist. One teaches bad but useless fiction, the other teaches a destructive ideology.

How is this worse than having a Socialist or Atheist appointed? I would much rather have someone that at least believes in God and Capitalism.

Considering the first two posts, I'm wondering when the inquisition starts again. May as well burn a few witches at the stake, and behead some atheists while we're at it.

When did God start caring about money? "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
It doesn't sound like religion and capitalism mix very well.

the other teaches a destructive ideology.

There are nations in the world that would laugh at you for that comment. They would also say we enjoy a higher standard of living and are happier also we imprison bankers that tried to crash our economy while you give them bonuses.

Between the responses here saying they want creationists over socialists and the thread yesterday (that finally got closed) where we had countless people openly calling for the outright extermination of every Muslim on the planet I think we're pretty much screwed. Just a bunch of people that want to teach about their God and the elimination of any challenge to that teaching through whatever means are necessary.

Christian Capitalism is all about mixing the two and it warps both.
