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

Nor does it work by allowing religious dogma to substitute for scientific evidence.

It’s not a matter of teaching anyone’s dogma.

It’s a matter of teaching students the scientific method; so that they will be able to evaluate things themselves — or, perhaps even go on to a career in science, and make new discoveries.
