A teacher in East Kilbride, Scotland, openly admitted to being a creationist, and promoting creationist beliefs in the classroom. They’re everywhere, so this is unsurprising, but this is what I have to apologize for:
Education chiefs launched an investigation earlier this month after it emerged that members of a US pro-creationist Christian religious sect, the West Mains Church of Christ, had been working as classroom assistants for eight years at Kirktonholme Primary in East Kilbride.
American creationist fifth columnists seeking to corrupt education in Scotland! I thought we were allies.
At least we sent you the stupid ones.
During a discussion on the Big Bang – the scientific theory explaining the origins of the universe – pupils were also said to have been told by teacher Leonard Rogers that people must stop putting their faith in things that cannot be proven.
Wait. “Stop putting their faith in things that cannot be proven”…well, there goes the entirety of religion, then.
