Meanwhile, Louisiana continues to debate how it teaches science to kids. Last year, the state senate spent hours deciding on a bill to repeal the Louisiana Science Education Act. The 2008 act "promotes critical thinking skills, logical analysis, and open and objective discussion of scientific theories being studied including, but not limited to, evolution, the origins of life, global warming, and human cloning." (See? It's already not as fun to read as the "Balanced Treatment" Act.) Critics say the Louisiana Science Education Act leaves the door open for creationism in schools. Supporters say that hasn't happened and isn't an important danger of the act. The bill was killed in committee.
