Good Stuff On TV And Radio Tonight (Tuesday)

Daniel Gonzales

November 13th, 2007

Ex-gay survivors Peterson Toscano and Christine Bakke will be on a gay radio show called Strictly Confidential tonight starting at 9:00PM (eastern time). The program can be streamed online right here. Also, I’m told it’s a call-in show.

If I don’t call to harass Peterson during his interview then I’ll be watching NOVA which is doing a program tonight on the Dover school board’s promotion of intelligent design and the ensuing trial and election.

Watch a preview here.

Thanks for the trailer Daniel. I set my DVR.

One guy in it says:

Very important things were at stake. One is, the future of science education in this country.

The root of the word science, scire, means “to know.”

I guess, technically, one could say that science, is the “science” of the pursuit of knowledge.

At the heart of which lies the need for the ability to think and reason for the purpose of discovering the most accurate information. And to that extent (thinking and reasoning based on facts), one could say science education is the teaching of intelligence itself.

Given that, like much if not most of the far right’s manipulative endeavors, it’s supremely ironic that their desire to teach “Intelligent Design” as science, is precisely a design to undermine and compromise intelligence itself.
