 Oz Schoolkids To Be Shaped As Atheists
Australian school kids will soon be given religious education classes, which teach that there is no evidence God exists.

According to The Sunday Age newspaper, the Humanist Society of Victoria has developed a curriculum for primary pupils that the state government accreditation body says it intends to approve.

The paper said that accredited volunteers will be able to teach their philosophy in the class time allotted for religious instruction.

As with lessons delivered by faith groups, parents will be able to request that their children do not participate.

"Atheistical parents will be pleased to hear that humanistic courses of ethics will soon be available in some state schools," quoted Victorian Humanist Society president Stephen Stuart, as saying.

The society does not consider itself to be a religious organisation and believes ethics have "no necessary connection with religion".
