Athebots evolve

Johninnit has a fantastic cartoon on the subject of teaching creationism in schools.

For myself I’ll be going to a variety of school concerts over the coming period and expect to hear a fair bit about the birth of Jesus.  I don’t guess any will go beyond the bounds of what you’d expect from the story.  And I know that my kids learn about other religions and their festivals in school and nursery.

I’ve yet to hear anything about atheism or agnosticism

Perhaps (via Cubic Garden) its time to sign the petition

    Heh – that petition thingy is very interesting. Wonder what it will settle out into – if they give it enough rope it could actually be a sort of useful barometer, once people get tired of p*ssing about with it. So far, the faith in schools petition has 950 signatories, so is at a tenth of of the support for legalising fox hunting, but more than three times as much as for Mr Tony resigning. 😉

    Maybe you’ve hit on something here though – if atheism had its own annual festival, special sugary food, copious booze, bumper helping of James Bond on telly and cute school performances, it might look a bit less nerdy. What would the kiddies UnChristmas play look like though?
