Science Fail #3

This is a second-hand fail, but still a winner loser. This was posted by RetiredSciGuy in the comments on the Sensuous Curmudgeon post: Theocratic Terror in the Classroom. The Curmudgeon is always a good read. Now prepare for failure!

I didn’t have any aggressively ignorant students trying to bait me into a science vs. religion discussion while I was teaching. Had some interesting conversations with a few parents during parent-teacher conferences, though. One that particularly stands out was a mom who said, “We’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, and we don’t believe in glaciers.”
Now that's what I call denial of the cold hard facts.

In an unrelated matter, if you read through the comments of another recent Curmudgeon post, you will learn that I have been appointed as Lord of the Outer Planets. Definitely the coolest thing to happen to me all week!

I haven't posted much lately - not quitting, just busy - and I refuse to be one of those silly bloggers that posts apologies for not posting.
