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.

(Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.)
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.
