Prof Alice Roberts Ban creationism in school science

Posted by doctore0 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 doctore0 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.”

Apostacon was my first specifically Pastafarian event, and it went very well. It was held at the Ramada Plaza Omaha Hotel & Convention Center in Omaha Nebraska on 2013/09/22. If you're in that area, and you're bringing your kids, check out the arcade and the giant indoor water park downstairs.

Texas student wins scholarship after outing teacher for comparing atheism to smoking

Posted by doctore0 on September 18, 2013

A student recently told a group of humanists in Texas in that she won a scholarship by standing up for her beliefs after her high school teacher compared atheism to smoking cigarettes.

At a Humanists of Houston meeting last week, 19-year-old Sara Elizabeth Sheppard explained that she decided to use her cell phone to record her high school economics professor after he “started to talk about religion in an inappropriate manner.”

During the one lecture, the teacher claimed that atheism was against human nature, and that “the mind rejects the concept of atheism” just like the body rejects smoking. The next week, he taught a lesson advocating prayer for a positive state of mind.

Sheppard provided the recordings to the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), which contacted the Katy school district. The school superintendent replied with a letter thanking Sheppard and FFRF.

“We have conducted a thorough investigation and have taken appropriate action,” the letter said.

A friend who was in the same class the next semester told Sheppard that the teacher had said that she “took away his right to talk about Jesus.”
