Scottish creationists under attack

How strange that militant secularists never seem to be bothered about islamist schools. From Herald Scotland -

"A parent has called for action to be taken by a school after a teacher allegedly told a science class evolution was 'not proven'. Adrian Smales says he was shocked when his daughter told him the assertion was made during an S3 physics class at Lasswade High School in Midlothian. During a discussion on the Big Bang - the scientific theory explaining the origins of the universe - pupils were also said to have been told by teacher Leonard Rogers that people must stop putting their faith in things that cannot be proven."

Well, so what? Evolution from one species to another (as opposed to the evolution of subspecies) can never be proven, simply because no-one lives long enough to watch it happen. At best scientists can only say that it is a reasonable hypothesis, given the fossil record. And it's not as if the teacher was ramming his ideas down the pupils' throats. Besides, why should one bigot decide that schools should preach evolution as unquestionable dogma?

Or the Christianity-bashers of the Midlothian education authority, come to that. As the article continues -

"Education chiefs launched an investigation earlier this month after it emerged that members of a US pro-creationist Christian ­religious sect, the West Mains Church of Christ, had been working as classroom assistants for eight years at Kirktonholme Primary in East Kilbride."

Yes, the same education chiefs who condemned parents for pulling their children out of a mosque visit.
