No surprise, really.

Tennessee passes law allowing creationism in the classroom

Well, that’s it then. Tennessee’s governor, William Haslam, allowed a clearly antiscience bill to pass into law. It is now legal to essentially teach creationism in Tennessee public school classrooms.

You can read about the background of all this in an earlier post. The TN House and Senate both passed this terrible, terrible bill, and Governor Haslam allowed it to beome law, saying,

Quote :
I do not believe that this legislation changes the scientific standards that are taught in our schools or the curriculum that is used by our teachers. However, I also don’t believe that it accomplishes anything that isn’t already acceptable in our schools.

This is, to not to put too fine a point on it, a crock. The legislation is designed specifically to allow creationism to be taught in classes, something the courts have clearly stated is against the law, and which just as clearly is unacceptable in our schools.

I guess my next question is when do history teachers get to teach "alternative theories" to 9/11? They have at least as much "scientific" backing as "alternative" theories to global warming and evolution. If the mere existence of a competing theory makes it relevant rather than the facts involved, it should be allowed, right?
