Wise, I support the truly, important principles stated in the quote you provided. Curriculum independence and scientific principles should be left to the real sciences and hypothesizing about truth to politics.
I do have concerns about politics and curriculum in any context. I see too much interference on a daily basis and find the lack of independence by all governments and from individuals of any party persuasion to be abhorrent.
Two somewhat, picayune issues:
I went to the original website and my concern with the arguments made in the earth sciences section arise from the authours stated interest in earth sciences becoming the "fourth" science taught in Texas. I didn’t read the other science page arguments and so I may be overstating my personal conclusion based on incomplete information on my part; and,
additionally, if the authour of this section in the Texas Citizens for Science documents was a reasonable writer of the English language I might have been more convinced as to his/her arguments.
I will wait for someone to parse (trash?) my writing or lack of writing skills so that I can learn from my mistakes.
My undergrad and grad studies are in earth sciences and I have been teaching earth sciences for a long time. This of course followed my own bias after kindergarten graduation during the my "plasticene age" of the 1960s.
