They thought they were simply voting to rename "evolution" in the classroom "the scientific theory of evolution." LOL. In fact, as part of the vote, they inadvertently voted to teach the scientific method, definition of the word "theory" as it pertains to science, and the huge body of work and testing needed to go from a hypothesis to theory. :clapping:

The board didn't quite mean to do that, of course. In a 4-3 vote, the Board accepted a proposed curriculum that replaced all references to evolution with the phrase "the scientific theory of evolution." In so doing, the board inadvertently made evolution central to public school science education, and also, almost incidentally, mandated education on just what constitutes a "scientific theory."

Until now, Florida's schools weren't required to teach evolution. The old curriculum guidelines didn't even mention it by name.

If you are too stupid to understand evolution, you're likely too stupid to figure out what you are voting for as well...
