I used to work in education and the idea of removal of science from school curriculum is so disturbing.
The religions, while forced to give ground to scientific realities as time has progressed, can still badly affect human progress in the modern day. Enough people are convinced that if the religious organizations feel strongly enough about something, that horrid tentacle from the more heavily religious past should be allowed to stretch it’s destruction into its future and into our future.
How many disorders, illnesses and diseases has religion taught us to treat and cure?
How much useful and helpful technology has religion discovered to make our lives easier?
It seems to me that pressure from religion to reduce the prevalence of science simply to reduce the ‘temptations’ that may draw people further away from dogmatic belief is a disgusting, arbitrary motive that no good will come from for the development and progress of our species.

All the best,
Woody
