According to the Associated Press:
During his eight days as a part-time high school biology teacher, Kris Helphinstine included Biblical references in material he provided to students and gave a PowerPoint presentation that made links between evolution, Nazi Germany and Planned Parenthood.
They fired him shortly thereafter.
I would *love* to see a copy of that PowerPoint…
Helphinstine says that he was presenting information on bias in sources and that the “whole purpose was to give accurate information and to get them thinking.”
Except I’m not sure how any of his supplemental material is accurate. Hell, most rational Christians wouldn’t equate any of those things either.
Incidentally, outside of an emergency, what teacher would leave a classroom for nearly two weeks during the Evolution unit?
