This how I see it,
Depending on the political balances of in our nation that is what will dictate which way the teaching of evolution or creationism will go.
Anybody can teach Creationism or ID if you have a bible.
But when it comes to science Biology teachers they will go either way if their jobs depend on it, scholastic science can go into a once a week class
while the rest of the week ID, Creationism and any other mumble jumble make up theory will take curriculum time.
Taking the state of education many adult Americans have not clue of what evolution is all about beside the “Monkey link” so you can imagine what
our children will be relegated at.
Mr. Bush and his fundamentalist friends and supporters have already gone far with the issue in Pennsylvania and Kansas. Perhaps with all the money the
Bush family spend in Grooming their son to be president they should have spend more time in the science classes so he could understand better what
science is all about.
I guess is not enough with teachers that will bend to the wishes of the few but now it has to be made mandatory.
By all means, teach creation in humanities classes — not just Genesis, but Norse myths, African myths, Indian myths — so, to paraphrase the
president, all sides are "properly taught." (Then watch the fireworks as the parents and the clerics storm in to demand more pages in the textbook
or a teacher more sympathetic to their version.)
If these religious rights get away with this supported by our politicians we not only will have creationism and ID in the schools but theocracy will
become the norm in the classrooms. After all the Historical roots of our nations have been sold to the American public as been part of our Christian
I agree with this quote and it applies to ID very well
There are virtually no scientific studies that even mention intelligent design. It rests largely on the argument that DNA is too complex to have
evolved through random selection. To shove it into the classroom as science is an attack on science itself.
At the end . . . can we trust our politicians to tell us what is good for the education of our children? Unless they are on a religious or political
agenda they will pull all of us including our children into illiteracy and oblivion after all American doesn’t need to be educated they just need
Jesus and the bible to guide their lives.
