A legislator in MIssouri is standing up for academic freedom and has put forth a bill to preserve it. The title says it all, in that this legislator is open to debate and willing to discuss the issues instead of simply shouting down the opposition as the Dawkinsists do.
Rep. Wayne Cooper, R-Camdenton, introduced legislation Tuesday that would give teachers academic freedom to offer alternative evidence to Charles Darwin’s 19th century theory of evolution.
“I believe what is packaged and sold under the label of science is not science, but is people’s personal world view,” Cooper said…
And, he’s right. It seems that more and more people are waking up to this realization, and that’s a good thing.
