Academic Says Atheists Seek to Influence the Educational System

Professor Robert Davis, from Glasgow University, warned that the Scottish curriculum is “under pressure” from new atheist lobbies.

“They want to exclude other perspectives and suggest they are not only wrong, but are invalid and should not be given any kind of space in learning and teaching and that is where those attitudes become damaging.” There is an “abundance of evidence the new atheism has very clear designs on the role of education in a democratic society... Religion gets robbed of its right to be present in the curriculum and the new atheists would group serious religious enquiry alongside ghost hunting and astrology in terms of their intellectual validity”.
