Faith is Bliss

Louisiana is legislating that other theories of life can be debated/taught in schools in the name of "academic freedom".


Now I'm all open to debating the flaws of evolutionary theory and where it breaks down. And I am pro challenging it with strong and convincing evidence/arguments/experiments. However, I am against the monumental intellectual dishonesty that will surely follow in this case.

At the same time, do a people have a right to miseducate themselves? If a corner of society wants to teach that 2+2=5, I'm tempted to say, "let them". I'd get the fuck out of there myself because I'm not interested in participating in it nor do I care to associate myself with people who get behind this kind of thinking.

Here's my question: if I was a Federal educator, would I try to prevent that or let it be fought locally? Do I have a duty to stop it?
