Call Louisiana Governor to support science education

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has the opportunity to veto a bill that was just passed by the state house that would undermine science education by opening the door to intelligent design and creationism as acceptable scientific alternatives. Signing this into law would be an embarassment to Louisiana, the nation as a whole, and would set a precedent that would further erode science education around the country.

Please take a minute to call the Governor's office and tell him that the nation's eyes are on Louisiana and he should prevent SB 733 from becoming law.

Phone: 225-342-7015 or 866-366-1121 (Toll Free)

It really only takes a minute. No one answered when I called the toll-free number, so I just left a voicemail. Go! Call!

Hi Wayne,
The video that you link to does not present an alternative scientific explanation to evolution. Therefore, it should not be taught as science in a science classroom.

The mutation analogy in Google Ads has potential but it was not executed in a way that makes it analogous to natural selection acting on mutations.

Science classrooms are for teaching science, not untested explanations masquerading as science.
