This week a part of Ohio’s state legislature determined college students have a proper to be mistaken in terms of their faith; screw no matter these nutty scientists say!
On Wednesday the Ohio House of Representatives handed the “Student Religious Liberties Act,” a legislation prohibiting college students from being penalized when their work is scientifically incorrect as long as they attribute it to their spiritual beliefs, a neighborhood information outlet reported. Rather than utilizing foolish metrics primarily based on logic and demonstrable info, lecturers ought to as an alternative grade college students on “ordinary academic standards of substance and relevance” in these instances in accordance with the invoice.

Ever.
