Heh........

All that's needed is one brave teacher in a well-to-do suburban school who will do the Hindu creation first, and then very objectively go on to Scientology, Christianity, Yolngu, and Cree, treating all with exactly the same tone of voice. Repeal would come up within a week.


"The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails." H L Mencken

Heh.......
The little piece that mentions Scientology was put in there by a Democratic rep named Vi Simpson, who is my hero for this week. She added it to effectively "neuter" the bill, similarly to how a Texas rep tried (but failed) to sterilize the one here last year that allowed women who were forced to have a sonogram prior to an abortion to force the Y-chromosome donor involved in her situation to have a vasectomy.

Re: Opening Statements
to obviously bogus stories like the ancient Greek/Roman origin stories or to the creation story in Norse myths.

"Obviously bogus" as compared to what? Genesis?

The whole thing nearly makes me wish I was a biology teacher in Terre Haute.
