Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal this week signed into law the Louisiana Science Education Act, which allows school districts to permit teachers to present evidence, analysis and critique of evolution and other prevalent scientific theories in public school classrooms.
The law came to the governor’s desk after overwhelming support in the legislature, including a unanimous vote in the state’s Senate and a 93-4 vote in the House.
The act has been criticized by some as an attempt to insert religion into science education and hailed by others as a blow for academic freedom in the face of pressure to ignore flaws in politically correct scientific theories.
Robert Crowther, director of communications for The Discovery Institute, a Seattle-based think tank on science and culture, called the act necessary.
As a studier of science I welcome this move. So Called Science has been held back by this theory. There is so much more out there to offer.
Yes, Religion is out there. Get Over It.
It is about time Evolution is put back into the category of theory and open the door for alternative theories.
