Secret reports

In the Evo.Sphere blog, Steve Schafersman reports that creationist members reviewing Earth and Space Science (ESS) standards submitted secret "minority reports" to the State Board of Education. The post in lengthy, but provides important documentation of the general smarminess going on in the Texas State Board of Education review of science standards. This is relevant to evolution because earth science has things to say about the age of the earth.

Additional: Only about 5 hours after I initially wrote about this, the post I referred to was taken down for as yet unknown reasons. The content of the original post can be read here.
