Area 4. Definitions . As found in this Act:
Flat earth science” (Zetetic Astronomy) means the medical evidences when it comes to planet’s as an outstretched air air plane and inferences from those medical evidences. Flat earth science includes the medical evidences and related inferences that indicate: our planet is definitely an outstretched air air plane; The understood, inhabited earth is about circular, using the north pole during the center and a 150 base wall surface of ice during the southern limitation (outer advantage);
our planet floats regarding the waters of this Great Deep, and there’s fire below those waters (often called Hell); our planet is included in a dome that also rests in the waters associated with Great Deep; the sun’s rays and moon are 32 kilometers in diameter and circle the location regarding the equator at an altitude of approximately 1500 kilometers; Eclipses associated with moon are due to an unseen dark human body moving right in front from it; (7) our planet and world had been produced about 4004 B. C.
“Spherical technology” means the systematic evidences for the sphericity associated with the planet and inferences from those systematic evidences. Spherical technology includes the clinical evidences and associated inferences that suggest: (1) The planet is a rotating ball; (2) The earth circles the sunlight, that is 93 million kilometers away; (3) Eclipses regarding the moon are brought on by the planet earth’s shadow; (4) Other planets are big systems, a lot of them larger than the planet earth; (5) the planet earth it self is only a small earth of a small celebrity within an undistinguished galaxy; (6) The world is huge amounts of light years in level; (7) our planet and world are huge amounts of yrs old.
“Public schools” means public secondary and schools that are elementary.
Area 5. Clarifications . This Act doesn’t need or allow instruction in almost any spiritual doctrine or materials. This Act doesn’t need any instruction within the topic associated with model of the planet earth, but merely calls for instruction both in systematic models (of spherical earth technology and earth that is flat) if general general public schools decide to show either. This Act will not need each textbook that is individual collection guide to provide balanced treatment towards the different types of spherical planet technology and flat planet technology; it will not need any college’s publications become discarded. This Act will not need every individual class room lecture in a training course to offer balanced treatment, but merely calls for the lectures in general to provide balanced treatment; it permits some lectures presenting spherical planet technology along with other lectures to provide earth science that is flat.
Area 6. Legislative Declaration of Purpose . This Legislature enacts this Act for general general public schools with all the purposes of protecting scholastic freedom for students’ differing values and opinions; ensuring neutrality toward pupils’ diverse spiritual beliefs; ensuring freedom of spiritual workout for pupils and their moms and dads; guaranteeing freedom of belief and message for pupils; preventing establishment of Theologically Liberal, Humanist, Non theist, or Atheist religions; preventing discrimination against pupils based on their individual values regarding the model of the planet earth; and assisting pupils within their look for truth. This Legislature doesn’t have the objective of causing instruction in spiritual principles or making an establishment of faith.
Area 7. Legislative Findings of Fact . This Legislature finds that:
(a) the main topic of the shape, figure, and origin associated with the planet and universe is addressed within numerous general public college courses, such as for instance basic science, planet technology, physics, astronomy, history, philosophy and social studies. Just spherical earth science is presented to pupils in practically all of the courses that discuss the design and beginning associated with planet. General general Public schools generally censor flat planet technology and evidence contrary to your spinning ball concept. The spherical concept isn’t an unquestionable reality of technology, as it can not be shown beyond any doubt, and since it is not accepted by some experts.
