Prince Myshkin Posted March 29, 2011 Share Posted March 29, 2011 http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/8937867.Atheism_to_be_taught_in_Blackburn_and_Darwen_schools/ Inspired by this news story in my local paper (wrongly entitled ''Atheism' to be taught' due to good old fashioned shock tactics to sell newspapers). So they are going to teach children in my area about humanism (based on reason, justice and ethics) as a form of non-religion, alongside lessons about religions. What are you views on it, and would you want a syllabus similar to this to be taught in your area? Do you think it is a positive step? Do you think it will 'confuse' children? Give reasons for or against, or both. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
