. . . funding the teaching of pseudoscience at Sydney’s Pacific Hills Christian School, where, according to Friendly Atheist,
students were being taught the following spectrum of beliefs in regards to evolution:
Somehow, this teacher places Intelligent Design to the right of Theistic Evolutionist. That makes sense…
More at Open Parachute and Maralyn Parker. I’m not opposed in principle to federal funding of private schools: every dollar spent on the education of students is money well spent, as far as I’m concerned. But the emphasis in that previous sentence should be placed on education. I don’t support telling lies to schoolchildren at the taxpayer’s largess ($200,000 in the case of Pacific Hills, as of June 2007), thanks. If you want to lie for Jesus to your kids, do it with your own money.
And while you’re at it, fire that sad excuse for a teacher, whose lesson plan appears to have been inspired by this creationist website.
