Florida’s citrus grower board member has opposed evolution

Oy vey and we wonder why Florida has the issues it does.
From the I can’t make this up file. The Tampa Times has said
our newest state board of education member has opposed the teaching of evolution.
Hey don’t have any actual teaching experience? Don’t believe
in science? Go with your gut rather than facts and evidence? Then the state
board of education may just be the place for you.
Here is an old quote from Andy Tuck our latest addition to
the board.
“As a person of faith, I strongly oppose any study of
evolution as fact at all. I’m purely in favor of it staying a theory and only a
theory,” he said. “I won’t support any evolution being taught as fact
at all in any of our schools.”
