    Default Bill 44 - Alberta's Evolution Bill (we really are the Texas of the North)

    A friend at the U of A forwarded me an email that was distributed out to students there. I searched I didn't see that this was posted yet.


    I was sent this petition letter from the U of A. This is a sad day for Alberta.

    Dear UAAA members,
    As you may have heard, the Alberta Legislature is considering a bill that would require teachers to notify parents in advance if a class will be discussing subjects related to religion, sexuality or sexual orientation. For some reason this is deemed to include the study of evolution. Once notified in this way, the parents would have the right to withdraw their children from such classes if they contradict their religious beliefs. Some people joke that since the bible (apparently) says that pi=3, any math class that teaches otherwise would also be optional.

    Here is one of the news stories that have appeared on this topic: http://technology.sympatico.msn.cbc....=abc&date=True

    There are numerous reasons to oppose this bill (or, more specifically, some of its sections), as you may guess. The most vigorous opponents seem to be the representatives from NDP. They are vastly outnumbered, but they've launched a petition to demonstrate the support for their position from the public. If you agree that religious parents should not deprive their children of good science education, please sign this petition, linked to below.

    The petition itself: http://www.ndpopposition.ab.ca/uploa...20Petition.pdf

    All the best, Zoya

    they are "considering" I doubt it will get passed but the fact that they are even considering it makes them look bad

    That's why there's the option of private schools in this province... did someone fail to notify our fearless leaders of this fact?

    If this goes thru, time to burn the churches.

    I wonder if the church crazies know that evolution and creationism are not mutually exclusive.

    How often do you hear Buddists come out interfering with education system or evolution in general?

    Buddhism in any form is compatible with the rest of the world and other religons. Can't say that for either Islam and Christianity in extreme/radical form.
