Suppose several Christians take a biology class and as they explore the
complexity of a cell, it becomes a religious experience for them.
Everything they see they interpret as evidence of a brilliant, all-powerful
Creator. Does their personal experience suddenly transform the biology
class into an EC violation? Seems like the "religious experience" isn't
being "caused" by the state. Do we really want to make the students'
personal experience a litmus test for EC compatibility?
