These Atheist Billboards in Brazil Get Right to the Point



Applause for the Texas victory


In the wake of the Texas state board of education's July 22, 2011, vote to approve scientifically accurate supplementary materials and to reject creationist-inflected materials, newspapers around the state are rejoicing.

The Austin American-Statesman (July 25, 2011) was relieved by the absence of "the Bible-thumping rhetoric that has become a board trademark." "We might miss the fireworks," the editorial concluded, "but we'll gladly trade the show for balanced policy making that will enable Texas students to compete in an increasingly complicated and increasingly global economy."
