Prepare for the next Christian onslaught against education

The Intelligent Design movement seems pretty well crushed at this point. It was years ago that it was shown to be not-even science. But I'm still worried that the Christians have some tricks left up their sleeves. I propose that we make a list of the possible assaults that the Christians might bludgeon us with next:

  • Theory of Intelligent Flunking instead of Education Theory
  • Theory of Intelligent Stupidity instead of Education Theory (worse, yet more likely, I fear)
  • Theory of Intelligent Falling instead of Theory of Gravity
  • Theory of Intelligent Barfing instead of Germ Theory of Disease
  • Theory of Intelligent Plunking instead of Music Theory
  • Theory of Intelligent Flapping instead of Powered Flight Aerodynamics Theory
  • Theory of Intelligent Condemnation instead of Psychology Theory

And of course, Astrology, Alchemy, and Seance Theory.

Please contribute to this list so we can distribute it to every thinking person in the U.S., to inoculate them against these pernicious non-ideas.

  1. I wouldn't be surprised if they started teaching kids that the current relatively free society is "wrong" and that the world should be according to the Bible. I wonder if they'll have gender-segregated schools or take girls out of schools altogether in my lifetime.
