A Sidelined Debate

Primary school students to be taught there isn't a God
Victorian state primary school students will soon be able to take religious education classes which teach there is no evidence God exists.

The Humanist Society of Victoria has developed a curriculum for primary pupils that the state government accreditation body says it intends to approve, The Sunday Age newspaper reported.

Accredited volunteers will be able to teach their philosophy in the class time allotted for religious instruction, the newspaper said.

As with lessons delivered by faith groups, parents will be able to request that their children do not participate.
School kids are already taught that in a host of subjects. Will there be some balance allowing students to know there is no proof there isn't a god either? Will Islamic students in public schools also be taught there is no Allah?
Strange, but few seem to care that atheism is also a faith .. of a type. Followers of atheism seem to suffer a great deal in life ..
