Any article that harps on “Darwinism” paragraph after paragraph can be expected to be typical creationist propaganda. This one is no exception.

I know an eighth grade science teacher that allowed the students of have a debate of Darwin ‘evolution’ against alternate theories. He was fired from his job for this. There is no ability to question or have open ended debate regarding this topic. Anything that smells like ID, or Creation Theory will be attacked as a violation of church and state and you will be thrown out, or at a minimum asked to stop, or lose your teaching position. Let’s face it, Darwinism is more of a religion than people are willing to admit.

This article twists the truth around to make it sound like a good thing for your children to be taught pig-ignorance in school. The DI is a well known Moonie front organization and it’s amazing that the same conservatives who’ve previously succeeded in keeping the Moonies out of their circulum are now cheering them in under the guise of demonizing post-Darwin science on paranoia based superstitious grounds.

The only scientific way to teach anything is to consider alternate hypothesis. Teaching evolution in complete isolation — as if it were the only “theory” or even as if it were indisputable fact — is distinctly unscientific -- no matter how well grounded the Theory of Evolution is.

Students need to learn how the scientific method works in practice — it does not work by acquiescence to authority.

Parents think it’s really neat that I’m allowing kids to weigh the evidence from both sides and make their own informed conclusions.”
***Sounds good to me.
