We all know of the big debate within the American school system: teaching intelligent design. It seems all that I am hearing from that side is "evolution is not true! fill the gap with god!" However, I haven't heard one thing about the actual curriculum of intelligent design. They say "Teach the Controversy!" but what exactly do they want to teach? I'm also quite puzzled how they will teach anything in biology (specially as a honors high school course) without invoking the word evolution. From what I can gather, it seems the entire class would be spent just 'debuking' evolution and not actually teaching anything that would progress our nation's students.
Has anyone here seen any sort of curriculum guide? textbooks? or even evidence of an intelligent designer/agent?
it seems the entire class would be spent just 'debuking' evolutionThat's all ID is. It doesn't have one single original idea. It's all "This doesn't quite make sense to me so god did it"
Yeah, this is what I'm saying. I don't know how you can go to a school board with any purposed teaching idea without having any type of material to support it. Shouldn't they have to show how it would be taught (like do a mock classroom in front of the board) before it is approved?
