Prof Alice Roberts Ban creationism in school science

Posted by Mr DoctorE on February 6, 2014

There is a role for discussing creationism in religious studies at schools, but it has “no place in science education”, according to the academic and television presenter Prof Alice Roberts.

In her personal film, she said there should be more debate on the issue’s role in schools, as she fears “creationism has the potential to ruin a scientific education”.

One Sixth Grader’s Bully? – His Ignorant Bible-Thumping Teacher

Posted by Mr DoctorE on January 27, 2014

“The American Civil Liberties Union is suing a school board in Louisiana, alleging officials at one of its schools harassed a sixth-grader because of his Buddhist faith and that the district routinely pushes Christian beliefs.

The lawsuit was filed against the Sabine Parish School Board Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Shreveport on behalf of Scott and Sharon Lane and their three children. According to the complaint from the ACLU and its Louisiana chapter, the Lanes enrolled their son — a lifelong Buddhist of Thai descent — in Negreet High School and he quickly became the target of harassment by the school’s staff.

“Public schools should be welcoming places for students of all backgrounds,” said Marjorie Esman, executive director of the ACLU of Louisiana. “No child should be harassed and made to feel like an outsider in his own classroom, and students should not have to endure school officials constantly imposing their religious beliefs on them while they are trying to learn.”

Like, ~5000 years before gawd created the universe, this cancer was there :P

The world’s oldest-known living cancer dates back 11,000 years, according to UK scientists.

It arose in a single dog and has survived in canines ever since, with the cancer cells passing between animals when they mate.

A team led by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge decoded the DNA of the cancer.

It revealed the “genetic identikit” of an ancient husky-like dog, which first developed the disease.

The animal was of a medium size with a short, straight coat that was coloured grey-brown or black.

“We do not know why this particular individual gave rise to a transmissible cancer,” said lead researcher Dr Elizabeth Murchison.

“But it is fascinating to look back in time and reconstruct the identity of this ancient dog, whose genome is still alive today in the cells of the cancer that it spawned.
