It seems like this teacher is honestly appraising the situation and listing what we know and what we dont know. Both sides have spent years saying we know it all and anyone who doesnt agree with us is wrong. Good on him.
I disagree that science says it knows it all.
I thing the problem we are seeing is that science deals with a particular kind of evidence, and scientists do not react well to those religious fundamentalists who approach the subject with religious belief and a "certain knowledge" that science is all wrong.
We see this particularly in the evolutionary sciences, where some religious beliefs are unalterable opposed to the findings of science.
Are we to treat their beliefs as scientific evidence? What would you have us do?
The teacher’s name is Doug Cowan and the article refers to Doug as ‘he.’ It isn’t so much the scientists pushing the one possible interpretation of the evidence view as it is zealots who view Darwin as a god beyond question.
Religion, at least Christianity, is a matter of faith, not fact. I do not agree with people who insist that they have demonstrated scientific proof of the teachings of Jesus Christ. That’s not what it’s about.
