The Louisiana Science Education Act, passed by the state legislature in 2008, permits science teachers to use supplemental materials to “critique” evolution, opening a backdoor that these teachers are using, as intended, to teach creationism. Such lessons are allowed under this Louisiana law, but they are illegal under federal law.
All it will take is for one Louisiana parent or student to sue the state for endorsing religion in public school.
And they didn’t because …
On April 22 the Louisiana Senate Education Committee voted on a bill to repeal the Science Education Act, referred to by many on both sides as the “creationism act.” This was the fifth vote since 2010, and legislators voted 4–3 to keep creationism in Louisiana classrooms.
Or else, it is just okay nowadays to criticize Darwinism?
We all know that Darwin’s metaphysical naturalism is in ruins. The big thing is how to bury it.
(Especially when so many “religious” people are rushing to save it. But one digresses.)
Also, what about the racism, based on Darwinism, for example? Why does that never matter when Darwin’s sacred name is invoked?
I (O’Leary for News) was only once in Louisiana, about forty years ago. But I sure got the impression that Darwinian racism should not be a big sell there.
