From Science, where there is a paywall so I can’t swatch a bit of it for you (but you might be able to read it), there’s this big worry, via Michael Baltzley: Some students might earn credits for learning “creationism.”
Would that include reading Suzan Mazur’s The Paradigm Shifters: Overthrowing “the Hegemony of the Culture of Darwin”? Or anything about rethinking evolution?
Should we punish such students by forcing them to join the Pants in Knot war on creationism in Louisiana? Except, if they had any brains, they’d probably either go home (preferred option) or switch sides (well, we all gotta learn).
Note: Many countries have just avoided these wars, saving the taxpayer time, grief, and money. Some fellow tried starting anti-creationism up in Canada yay years back, but he couldn’t get public funding at that time for starting a big stink for no valuable public purpose.
