Breaking the Darwinian Monopoly in Science Education

The Tennessee House of Representatives voted 70-28 on Thursday, April 7 to pass a bill that would protect teachers from discipline if they challenge the mainstream theories on "biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning." All of these have been questioned by scientists themselves.  Consider this disagreement between two environmentalists on global warming.

Of course, the Tennessee bill will be challenged by evolutionary science addicts.  Still, it is a good step in the direction of breaking the Darwinian monopoly in science education. Even the Russians think its time that other theories be considered also.
