I agree with Richard Lucas that our young people should hear “the evidence-based rational case” for a more demanding and protecting moral stance against alcohol and drugs etc.
Will he agree with me that they should also hear the evidence-based rational case against the existence of supernatural agency?
This is not currently the “official line” in what we teach in our schools on this subject, what with forced religious observance at every opportunity in the name of spiritual development.
I have no problem with evidence-based education, based on rationalism. I suspect, however, that Mr Lucas might.
