Creationism in Schools

According to the Guardian

Pupils in England will be required to discuss creationist theories as part of a new GCSE biology course being introduced in September.

If you must discuss creationism in schools then it belongs in religious education classes along with all the other superstitious nonsense. It certainly doesn’t belong in a science class.

Update: The same story covered by the BBC.
