A Sad Day In Qld Education

According to the Courier Mail, Intelligent Design (the way of teaching people about Christianity without mentioning God or Jesus, using sneaky pseudo-science and treating mythology as fact) will now be taught in Qld State Schools.

If it is being taught alongside other creation mythology such as Mithraism, Islam, Judaism, Aboriginal, Witchcraft and so on, clearly mentioned as mythology, and taught in History class, then this is maybe acceptable - people need to know the thoughts and beliefs of previous generations and how they lead to some of the things that were achieved (including being the leading cause of discrimination and war), but these should NEVER be taught in Science class, unless Science class also teaches about Ancient Rome, Crocheting and The Dutch Royal Family - equally unscientific topics.

I sincerely hope this will not be taught in science classes. If it is, then it is a victory for the flat-earthers.
