David Paszkiewicz takes students to Creation Museum

David Paszkiewicz, the Kearny, NJ high school teacher who was proselytizing for Christianity and creationism and then lied about it when his student Matthew LaClair complained, only to be caught because LaClair recorded the evidence, is taking students from the school on a field trip to the Creation Museum. Paszkiewicz, who is also the advisor for the school's Christian Club, wants students to be exposed to the "science behind creationism."

Apparently the original plan was to take this field trip during school hours using taxpayer funds.

Matthew LaClair will be discussing this tonight on Equal Time for Freethought on WBAI radio 99.5 FM in NYC at 6:30 p.m. EDT, 3:30 p.m. MST (Arizona). WBAI broadcasts on the Internet in several streaming audio formats, so you don't have to be in NYC to listen.

Something not likely to happen in any other natural history museum.

The White Man: Of course not, since creationism isn't science. There's no science going on at the Creation Museum, or behind their claims.

The phrase "science behind creationism" is somewhat ambiguous; it could refer to a scientific examination of creationist claims, which is legitimate--but it's a record of refutation.

Behe testified that not ONE scientific paper has been produced in favor of ID/creationism.
