A Republican lawmaker in Alabama has introduced a bill that would allow Biblical Creation to be taught in public schools in the state, alongside evolutionary theory.
H.B. 258 was recently presented by Rep. Steve Hurst, R-District 35, and provides allowance for teachers to explain to students both Biblical Creation and evolution, so that youth can formulate their own conclusions as to what they believe.
If a student adheres to a belief in the Bible’s account of the creation of the world, he or she would be permitted credit on exams if the student answers test questions in accordance with the Scriptures. In other words, the student would not be punished in any manner for answering the questions in alignment with the Bible, as long as the answers are correct and reflect what was taught.
“In any public K-12 school instruction concerning the theories of the creation of man and the Earth, and which involves the theory commonly known as evolution, any teacher may include as a portion of instruction the theory of creation as presented in the Bible, and may read passages in the Bible as deemed necessary for instruction on the theory of creation, thereby affording students a choice as to which theory to accept,” the bill reads.
