The best reason for humanism

Guy Horden, chair of Birmingham's standing advisory council for religious education, holds that "maybe there are people who do not believe in God, but in the main that's because they never had case for the belief of God presented to them" (TES Cymru, November 5).

Such arrogance is spreading and is reason enough to ensure that students are taught a secular, humanist view of morality and philosophy.

Perhaps we should add more time to the teaching and discussion of modern Darwinism in GCSE and A-level science classes instead of rushing through a crowded AQA syllabus.
