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

‘-ism’ is an appropriate english suffix for someone holding tightly to or advocating for believe or system. Seems less cumbersome to use than than to use ‘proponents of Evolutionary theory’.

it's an article from a Christian magazine - I doubt they are trying to hide their interests here. Evolution as a theory will only benefit from students taught to think critically in these areas. The students will benefit also.

I’m a firm believer in evolution, but I didn’t get the impression you got from the article. There are holes in the theory of evolution, as there are holes in any theory. There are millions of people who believe that those holes can be explained best by something other than a lack of evidence. To say that their opinions must be disregarded, which the ACLU has done for years, is as wrong as it is to say that the Bible teaches the only possible history of life on earth and no other will be tolerated.

IMO, more power to him. Teach what we know and don’t gloss over what we don’t know. The kiddies aren’t stupid and they don’t need to be indoctrinated. They can make up their own minds.

He might mention to his students that the author of Evolution: A Theory in Crisis has done a 180.

Once I saw “Neo-Darwinism” I quit reading. There’s nothing “neo” about Darwin.
