I’m happy to see a supportive letter to the editor in response to my column in the Tampa Bay Times.
Bad science at voucher schools March 20, commentary
Torch of reason
As a retired science teacher I am very pleased that Brandon Haught is keeping the torch of reason alive to shed light on what creationists have cobbled together as a “science curriculum” in some voucher schools. For religious conservatives to disregard the evidence produced by scholars and researchers in the form of fossil collections, results of carbon dating, millions of pages of data and man-hours of study — all of which is subject to review and verification — strikes me as 16th century thinking. If we have separation of church and state, why are we paying them public money for this “non”science?
