US lawbreaking



After reading an article in the New Scientist a US based magazine I was astounded to read the the teaching of creationism is against the law. it goes on to say a US court has decreed that creationism is a form of religious belief and should not be mooted in the science class as it is erroneous. It also says that 16% of teachers in America still flout the judicial ruling and carry on teaching creationism; here is the link to the article

Well in that great democracy of freedom I laboured under the impression that the original American colonists left Europe and looked forward to a life of the 4 freedoms and I was simply astonished that a belief could be banned being taught, ah well I was wrong again its not often I am right these days (old age and poverty perhaps )shocked_yellow jmb:P
