Imbalance -- It's Even Worse at Stanford

Some complain that the MCPS curriculum is unbalanced, since it doesn't contain anything about "ex-gays."

But just take a look at how unbalanced a curriculum can get. Aaron Swartz,, of Aaron Swarz: The Weblog has uncovered imbalance of massive proportion on the campus of Stanford University.
... [M]y preliminary research has discovered some even more shocking facts. I have found that only 1% of Stanford professors believe in telepathy (defined as "communication between minds without using the traditional five senses"), compared with 36% of the general population. And less than half a percent believe "people on this earth are sometimes possessed by the devil", compared with 49% of those outside the ivory tower. And while 25% of Americans believe in astrology ("the position of the stars and planets can affect people’s lives"), I could only find one Stanford professor who would agree.

Watch for a web site,, real soon.
