Warning: This Science Textbook Teaches “evolution”

Some school science textbooks contain such dangerous information that they should have a disclaimer added to them.

Designed by Colin Purrington from Swarthmore College, you can add these spoof disclaimer stickers to science textbooks that promote such “spurious” theories as evolution, gravity, and plate tectonics.

Below are some examples, and you can see them all here.

Apparently, the text of the sticker at the top left is taken directly from the Georgia Cobb County School District (un-ironic tagline: “A community with a passion for learning”).

The other stickers on the site (which can be downloaded as a PDF) were all made up.

Unsurprisingly, the site has come in for some flak. My two favorite comments by far are these:

Be gone with your foul pagan gravity. We ain’t haven’ it.

If you’re going to argue factually, then you will lose…In truth, facts can neither prove or disprove the unprovable.

So there you have it!


What do you think of these textbook disclaimer stickers? Are they (as one commenter suggests) “Kinda meanspirited and… anti-religious” or are they totally spot on? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
