My name is Gabriella Fiorino, and I am currently a student aiming for a degree in Neuropsychology. I was home schooled with very conservative Christian textbooks, and taught to deny evolution. However, as I got older, I realized that I was being taught lies, and strove to learn science for myself. After reading Sam Harris’s Free Will, I became an atheist at the great displeasure of my family.
I am sending this message as I started a petition on Change.org that I believe this site may wish to support. The petition is regarding the recent documents leaked showing that many teachers in Louisiana are promoting Creationism in public schools. My petition shows how this act is unconstitutional due to the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment. If you agree with the petition, I would be elated if you could sign it and share. Below is the link to the petition. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Have your say...
