British Government Bans Creationism Public Schools, Seen as Secular Triumph

In what’s being heralded as a secular triumph, the UK government has banned the teaching of creationism as science in all existing and future academies and free schools. The government released a new set of funding agreements in a little noticed document last week, including clauses which specifically prohibit pseudoscience. The funding agreement defines creationism as ”any doctrine or theory which holds that natural biological processes cannot account for the history, diversity, and complexity of life on earth and therefore rejects the scientific theory of evolution,” and goes on to note that this idea is rejected not only by the scientific community but most mainstream churches as well.
