Motion ref. S4M-12149

Creationism and Evolution

Submitted by: John Mason, Glasgow Shettleston, Scottish National Party.
Date lodged: Friday, January 23, 2015

Supported by: Richard Lyle, Dave Thompson

That the Parliament notes that South Lanarkshire Council has issued guidance concerning the appointment and input of chaplains and religious organisations in schools; understands that some people believe that God created the world in six days, some people believe that God created the world over a longer period of time and some people believe that the world came about without anyone creating it; considers that none of these positions can be proved or disproved by science and all are valid beliefs for people to hold, and further considers that children in Scotland’s schools should be aware of all of these different belief systems.
