Perhaps this "critical thinking 'bout creation" bill by Rep. Bill "Circular Reasoning" Dunn will actually end up being good secular legislation - imagine a classroom discussion wherein during a lecture to students gathered in a science class is the following "critical thinking" discussion about the fallacy of circular reasoning ("...an argument that uses its conclusion as one of its premises is most often called "begging the question" or circular reasoning"):
"But is there a God?"
"How do you know?"
"Because the Bible says so."
"How do you know the Bible is correct?"
"Because it was inspired by God."
In this fallacy, the premise, the Bible’s statement that God exists, derives its authority from the attempted conclusion, the existence of the God who allegedly wrote the Bible."
Thus, the entire biblical account of creation is grounded on the fallacy of circular reasoning.
