However, on the basis of the sciences, for example, atheism is the norm of which is taught in our public schools. I find it very difficult to separate atheism and secularism on this subject, because Darwinism is the only belief that is being taught, while a significant fraction of the population believes that the universe did not emerge by chance. Much of the blame could be made on the church itself, for it never offers a logical explanation of how religious texts can be used to explain anything but the knowledge of good and evil. There are those who see the Bible as not only a moral compass, but a contending idea of history, biology, geology, etc. I'm not one for removing Darwinism from our schools. However, a logical argument could also be presented in defense of intelligent design, and would be nice to see. Instead, our public schools serve as a state-sponsored form of atheism, in which alternative views are not tolerated in the classroom.

This really reeks of "playing the victim". Very much like the "Statue" thread, I'm sorry many can't differenciate between secularism and atheism, but you know what, that their fault and no one elses. Not once I have I heard of a public school teaching that God didn't exist. Not once.
