I pity the American schoolkids, I pity freedom of thought of this kind of stuff goes on.
Schoolkids have a right to religious studies (and there are many religions, and interpretations apart from what a fundamentalist might like).
But they also have a right to a Science curriculum that hasn't been neutred by censors.
Dogmatism is the software version of lobotomy.
I'm glad (at the moment) that I live in Australia. But there have been campaigns to do the same here. This kind of thing sets a precedent the world over.
--- PS (re a post elsewhere in this thread) I don't think it's fair to associate anti-g*n attitudes with creationist fundamentalism, just as strong a case could be made for associating pro-g*n attitudes with fundamentalism. I don't think it helps anybody to conflate the issues. Mike _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Get your free @yahoo.com address at http://mail.yahoo.com
