Letter: Are we back at the Scopes Monkey Trial?

(Al Hartmann | Tribune file photo) Eleventh graders make glass slides and count Paramecium through microscopes, part of a national science competition in biology class Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016 at Salt Lake Center for Science Education.

I am appalled that meetings are even being held to determine what should be taught in our science classes. Are we back in the 1920s with the Scopes Monkey Trial? What about the Flat Earth Society?

I’m offended that someone thinks the Bible and creationism should be taught in school, let alone in a science class.

If this is indicative of today’s school system, I’m not just worried, I’m horrified!
