Some Jive About Truth

So I am about to watch a series of videos called Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution. It is a set of videos created by Dr. Jobe Martin, a dentist and former “Darwinist” turned creationist.

How dare they call themselves educators

I caught wind of this story a few minutes ago reading twitter. Man did it piss me off. Here’s the ground work: A city school in Rochester, New York gave essentially an extra-credit assignment to its students. One that I think was actually a fantastic assignment.
