Darwin Does Dover. Hee Hee. Do you remember the Intelligent Design Debate? Of course you do. Well folks, I live in the land of Intelligent Design, Dover, Pennsylvania, US of A. Back in February I drove to the end of my road to find this sign. Darwin in Dover. Ha Ha, HeeHee. I wanted to take a photo, but missed the opportunity. I found this on Flicker. Yay Flicker!
I lived through this. The right-wing, uber-conservative Christians tried to take over the school district and enforce the teaching of creationism. We went to the school board meetings and tried to convince these eejits that they were eejits but they would not listen to us. They would not let us speak.
I know you think we Dover-ites are a bunch of po-dunk rednecks but there are some of us that are a bit more educated. We did defeat these bastards. They lost their court case and they all lost their school board positions.
We chose to live here because of the natural beauty of the area (you have seen the photos) and the proximity to major metropolitan areas such as DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York. We love this area. Do not let these people take over your school board. It was an organized effort during the Bush administration. I think they are still around. Whoever posted the sign, "Thank you!" I laughed every morning on my way to work.
