Sen. Elbert Guillory, D-Opelousas, said he had reservations with repealing the act after a spiritual healer correctly diagnosed a specific medical ailment he had. He said he thought repealing the act could “lock the door on being able to view ideas from many places, concepts from many cultures.”

“Yet if I closed my mind when I saw this man—in the dust, throwing some bones on the ground, semi-clothed—if I had closed him off and just said, ‘That’s not science. I’m not going to see this doctor,’ I would have shut off a very good experience for myself,” Guillory said.

That’s why. I wonder if “being able to view ideas from many places, concepts from many cultures” includes Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and Native American creation stories and/or medicine instead of science?

Because, you know, historically speaking, Young Earth Creationism isn’t Jewish (nor Christian)… Wonder if we can teach Jon Levenson and John Walton believe the author of Genesis 1 meant ?
