It is absolutely alarming that they are filling kids’ heads with this garbage in the 21st century. These “faith-based schools”in the UK are using a very popular curriculum imported from the good ole U.S. of A. These taxpayer-funded schools also include Muslim schools teaching their own brand of Medieval bullshit.
This is child abuse. Read at Coburg Atheist:
… They think that you can teach children that the bible (or Qur’an) has all the answers – they even believe it themselves. This means they are deliberately pushing the next generation backwards. At this rate, if this was done in all schools, in a few decades we would be back in the Inquisition.
“Oh but that only happens in the backward U.S. South” you say. Or maybe only in backward Muslim countries like Iran and Pakistan – that’s why they are under-developed. While it is true that Science text books for children that teach creationism are produced in the U.S., they are moving to the U.K. into “Faith based schools”. See the following video:
