Our governments are complicit in perpetuating scientific ignorance. Parkes Christian School gets 78% of its recurrent funding from Federal and State governments and teaches in science that "All creation is the specific product of a loving and creative God." Bible Baptist Christian Academy gets 72% of its funding from governments and its science curriculum "teaches that God made the world in six, literal days."
No reputable scientific authority in the world accepts creationism as science, yet our governments not only allow this to go on but fund it with taxpayers money. Australian children deserve better.
