I hope you're right. I hope that one teacher in Tennessee is willing to risk getting shunned by their town and actually DOES use this bill to teach critical thinking.
"Class, we're going to talk about alternative, non-scientific explanations for creation and evolution. Since science deals with evidence in the natural world, we're going to talk about the alternatives - namely, the supernatural. Who here can list things they think are "supernatural"?"
"That's right, ghosts, afterlife, gods, demons... all good examples. Now, let's have a serious discussion about the evidence supporting the existence of these things..."
When little Sally comes home that night to explain that the science teacher explained there's no actual evidence of a supernatural God - just a bunch of conflicting stories from different cultures, all pretty much sounding like they were made up by the authors - Sally's parents will throw a fit.
And the teacher can wave this bill in the face of the parents and school board who criticize him for daring to question the existence of god(s) in science class.
And if that teacher gets into the press for fighting the good fight, I promise to personally write a $1000 check to them (which is a pittance compared to what I give to our church).
