VIDEO: Teen activist Zack Kopplin to John Fugelsang: Tax money is paying for creationism lessons in schools



My now-nineteen-year-old Louisiana pal Zack Kopplin is still fighting creationism law, and yes, Zack is one remarkable teen. Our previous posts by and about Zack here. His mission is to just say NO to creationist vouchers. Well, not just say no, he's an activist after all.

In fact, he has now become a leader in the fight to repeal the Louisiana Science Education Act, which allows creationism to be taught in public schools. Here he is on Current talking to our pal John Fugelsang:

Kudos Zack!


"This isn't just Louisiana any more."

“I’ve exposed that there are 19, 20 schools in Louisiana — at least, if not more — who are teaching creationism and receiving public money."

  •  Thank  YOU, Tim.

  • Got it. I agree, thanks!

  • The point is that it shouldn't be taught in schools. Separation of church and state. Evolution is theory that is based in science. Someone's god isn't.

  • Isn't it possible a god created evolving life?? (<--inner debate I'm having. Call me unenlightened or ignorant, if you'd like...) I think creationism should be something that is debated, but it shouldn't be considered sacrosanct and infallible, just as evolution shouldn't... Evolution is a theory, after all.
