7. An incredibly silly law

B.(1) The State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, upon
request of a city, parish, or other local public school board, shall allow and assist teachers, principals, and other school administrators to create and foster an environment within public elementary and secondary schools that promotes critical thinking skills, logical analysis, and open and objective discussion of scientific theories being studied including, but not limited to, evolution, the origins of life, global warming, and human cloning. (2) Such assistance shall include support and guidance for teacher regarding effective ways to help students understand, analyze, critique, and objectively review scientific theories being studied, including those enumerated
in Paragraph (1) of this Subsection.
C. A teacher shall teach the material presented in the standard textbook supplied by the school system and thereafter may use supplemental textbooks and other instructionalmaterials to help students understand, analyze, critique, and review scientific theories in an objective manner, as permitted by the city, parish, or other local public school board.

Only one of the four listed is even a scientific theory (evolution). No reputable scientists thinks a theory of the origins of life exists - we have several hypotheses that are being pursued. Global warming is either a fact or it is not. Anthropogenic Global Warming caused by CO2 build up is a hypothesis with a strong consensus that should eventually be a scientific theory. Human cloning is a procedure - it has nothing to do with a scientific theory.
