A NEW government-pioneered high school religion course has baffled scientists.
Spanish high school students will be examined on their ability to ‘recognise the divine origin of the cosmos with amazement, make effort to understand it and be aware that it does not originate from chaos and chance.’
The PP-approved curriculum has been published in the Official Gazette.
This fits in with the education law, the LOMCE, passed in 2013 in spite of opposition party disapproval.
The 2007 curriculum was adapted in that issues including abortion, euthanasia and references to religions outside Christianity were eliminated.
The course also raised eyebrows by measuring the individual’s ability ‘to achieve happiness all by him or herself.’
The curriculum, drafted entirely by bishops since 1979, is an elective module but the marks now count towards final grades, making it more relevant.
