Bill to overhaul teaching in Louisiana passes

Yesterday the bill in Louisiana passed in the Senate.

…the Senate voted 36-0 without debate to go along with the same version of the proposal that the House passed last week 94-3.

The measure, Senate Bill 733, now goes to Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is expected to sign it.

It would allow science teachers to use supplemental materials, in addition to state-issued textbooks, on issues like evolution, global warming and human cloning.

What supplemental materials might these be?

You can read more about it here.

Also, if you’d like to email the governor of Louisiana to tell him what you think, see this link: http://www.gov.la.gov/index.cfm?md=form&tmp=email_governor

Thanks to Stacy for the contact info.

    I’m guessing that you are going to get a lot of traffic tonight! 😉

  3. You say you are a “religious” person- hummm? What “religion” would that be- the religion of atheism? If you consider yourself a Christian- do you just ignore Genesis or do you believe the bible is just a made up book of fairy tales? Not quite getting your take here on being a “religious” person…

  4. That would be the religion commonly called Christianity. If you read my blog a bit further, you would have answered your own question. But no worries.

    No, I do not ignore Genesis. However, I do not agree that the creation account in Genesis is supposed to be read as a science text, nor do I feel it was meant to be read as a literal historical account.
