Does God belong in the classroom? - Schools, Education - The Independent:

The idea that religion should be taught like other subjects is not only daft, but dangerous - as we have seen - in any culture.

Subjects like Maths, Languages, geography, and Science (history to a lesser degree) have facts, which although they are often manipulated, can be tested outside (the teaching environment).

Religion is only an opinion, one that cannot be tested. So why pretend its on a par?

As for morality: the most moral people I know are atheists. I suspect this is because morality is a human - as opposed to a divinely inspired - condition."
