The article is titled, “An Evolving Controversy: The Struggle to Teach Science in Science Classes” (Summer 2012, pp. 12–23). The authors, Michael Berkman and Eric Plutzer, are professors of political science at Pennsylvania State University. They have written about the creation vs. evolution controversy before, but this article highlights their bias toward evolutionary belief in stunning ways.
He goes on to suggest that because Scientists have not observed evolution, then debate remains. Except… we have observed evolution in process. Of course, they make up excuses for this.
And he pretends that Creationists produced respectable science – that’s like saying mythicists are respectable.
Wait for it…
I am unsure how teaching Creationism, something unsupportable biblically and scientifically, is teaching children to think critically. Isn’t that like asking them to question why we have no evidence against Santa Claus or honest Republicans?
Oh come on, Hambone…
Teach the kids science. If you can, teach actual biblical criticism at the high school level so that they can understand just how bad Hammy K and others are abusing it to fit their own needs.
