Tennessee Governor Allows Creationism Bill To Become Law | Addicting Info
- Facing a certain override by the state legislature, Governor Bill Haslam is allowing HB 368/SB 893, a creationism bill, to become law in Tennessee without his signature. Under Tennessee law, if there is no action by the Governor on a bill, that bill automatically becomes law after ten days. Such is the case with the creationism bill.The bill allows educators to teach creation myth alongside real science. Thereâ€™s really no other way to put it. Even students can feel free to question the validity of evolution by bringing up religious views that have no scientific evidence. Students and teachers can even use religion to question global warming and the chemical origins of life. And teachers are totally protected by the law to allow this. Itâ€™s a recipe for confusion and division in schools.
