Petition to the Scottish Government

Nobel Laureate Kroto backs Scottish Secular Society's call for guidance to keep creationist teaching out of Scottish schools

"Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to issue official guidance to bar the presentation in Scottish publicly funded schools of separate creation and of Young Earth doctrines as viable alternatives to the established science of evolution, common descent, and deep time"

Sir Harold joins human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell, Chief Executive of the British Humanist Society Andrew Copson and President of the National Secular Society Terry Sanderson who have all signed the petition.

The petition itself, if you haven't yet signed, is at http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/gettinginvolved/petitions/creationismguidance

More on the petition and why we need it, Sir Harold, and his links to Scotland here
