Professor Michael Reiss of the Royal Society should hang his head in shame saying asinine things like this.
What people believe is nothing to do with science. Science is about provable facts and knowledge, not belief based on faith. There is no place for teaching fairy stories in science classrooms. People have a right to believe whatever they want, but unsubstantiated theories shouldnâ€™t be taught as fact. Creationism should be consigned to the religion and philosophy classrooms, and thereafter to the Dustbin of Stupidity and Ignorance.
Oh for a secular education system!
