Florida on the road to dedoomification

Brandon Haught from Florida Citizens for Science just sent me a note that things are actually looking up in Florida in fighting the creeping crud of creationism©:

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

The American Institute of Biological Sciences released a letter in support of the science standards.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State also released a letter in support of the standards.

The Florida Academy of Sciences presented a supporting resolution at Monday’s public forum meeting in Orlando.

Links to those letters are on the FCS site linked above. Also, Monroe County, one of the contested counties, has passed a resolution in favor of the standards that support evolution!

This is great news, but the stare BOE meets next week, and we'll see where things fall then. But this bodes well.
