← Science can't explain the big bang - there is still scope for a creator

Ygern's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Ygern

This is a disingenuous and dishonest article both on the level of the pseudo-scientific claim (still scope for a Creator? Which theory would that be, I can't for the life of me think of it?) and its sly insinuation that gullible Believers are somehow being browbeaten or victimised by science teachers who agree with Richard Dawkins.

I'd be rather surprised if they were treated any differently to other students; and almost certainly are taught with great tolerance, patience and care. But no, the fact that they have been led to believe in superstition over science should not be "respected". You know why? Because that gives people the false impression that their superstitious belief is one with a shred of merit.
