Regarding the bills running through the House and Senate:
Something is definitely fishy. The bill states that this in no way serves to promote any religous or non-religious viewpoint, but to point out the controversies in the various theories on the origins of life. So what will that look like? "Okay, class, I am required by law to tell you that the theories on the chemical origin of life and evolution are controversial. Unfortunately, I am unable to discuss any other theories because they all have to do with some sort of creator/space alien involvement and that falls under forbidden categories." The bill seems a little unnecessary, since to my knowledge (which may in fact be limited), the only controversy is between mainstream science and religion.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
House Bill 368 passed on April 7, now watch out for Senate Bill 0893. This bill is disguised as promoting critical thinking and scrutinizing scientific evidence, but in actuality is a classic creationist "Teach the Controversy" bill. Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this.
The bill, or at least I believe it to be the current version:
A committee meeting that makes abundantly clear the intent of this bill:http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/default.aspx?BillNumber=SB...
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Hi all. Thanks for maintaining the group, Brad. The membership has more than doubled just since I joined. To borrow a line from Martha Stewart, "That is a good thing." I look forward to participating, and getting to know some of you.
