Fighting Against Creationism in the UK
Well.... shit.And I thought this kind of crap was a purely American phenomenon.
I have asked the CST which materials they use to teach science and they wouldn't tell me. I wonder why.
The attitude of the headteacher was very telling - totally unwilling to definitively say how old he thought the Earth was. Anyone would think creationists were either ashamed of their views or they know they're not acceptable.I got quite angry watching this thinking "There's a whole load of kids who'll never go onto doing anything worthwhile unless they can break their brainwashing."
In fact I think that is a very telling response - I have seen it several times with creationists - perhaps some part of them really does realise just how far out and how silly this "belief" is.
I am appalled. This is child abuse.
