DesktopWeb FormText   put warning stickers on biblesFri, 14 Jan 2005 16:40:49 GMT # 

some county in GA has had stickers on their science books that read, "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered." they just recently had a court order to remove the stickers. of course the religious fundamentalists are probably going to appeal. but as an atheist, i think we are going about this the wrong way. instead of being on the defense ... we need to make an offensive move. i'm thinking that we should use their same techniques against them. imagine a child opening up a bible and seeing a sticker that read, "This theological book contains material on religion. Religion is a theory, not a fact, regarding faith and god. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered." and how about scrapping the religious section in book stores. i dont mean banning the books ... i mean properly categorizing them as fiction
