In Defense of Keeping Science and Spirituality Separate

Mike (of Can of Worms) had the second place entry in Blognonymous' "I Love My President Because..." contest, and as a prize, I offered to reprint a post of Mike's choosing. So without further adieu...

In Defense of Keeping Science and Spirituality Separate in American Classrooms

What a great article. Thanks Kvatch.

Lily, it's a Blogger thing. In order to get an article that doesn't show up in the index but that has the same formatting, I have to post it; copy it; then withdraw it.

I wish I could use Bloggers post processing facility through a web-service or something so I wouldn't have to go through these hoops.

Oh well...

Mike, I rarely have the patience to so thoroughly cover a subject and commit my opinions to print. Makes your post that much more important. Thanks for sending the article on.
Thanks for giving me the ability to share it with a wider public.
