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.

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