Schools of Thought

From Zay N. Smith's QT column in the Chicago Sun-Times:

President Bush endorses the teaching of the Old Testament
story of creation alongside the evolution theory in science
classes, "to expose people to different schools of thought."

And when is someone going to inform geology students that Earth
is only 6,008 years old?

There are many changes that need to be made in our science classes.

Bush must not have been exposed to the "school of thought" that states there is a separation of church and state. The Old Testament story is not a "school of thought" it's the basis for a religion. Does Bush think we should also add the creation stories from all other religions as well as those from the Native Americans, Aboriginies, Pygmies, etc. to our science curriculum. I doubt it.

God help me if I'm ever exposed to Bush's "school of thought."
