Texas wins victory over Creationists

The whackos who would like to introduce superstition and pseudoscience into the public school classroom lost some foot hold recently:
Quote:
The Texas Board of Education has tentatively adopted new teaching standards that would make it more difficult to teach creationism in Lone Star state schools.

Board members voted eight-to-seven last night to drop controversial language in the state's curriculum that requires science teachers to discuss the “strengths and weaknesses” of scientific theories.
