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?
"How would I.D be taught in schools?"
It would be taught over my dead body.
This reminds me of Jen McCreight's blog series on her visit to the Creation Museum in 2009. If you haven't read it, it's worth a read.
It just shows how uneducated the creationists and ID'ists are, and how ignorant they are of evidence pointing to evolution. Also how they prey on children to get them started believing in fairy tales as young as they can get 'em.
This is all I could really find right now. UTTER GARBAGE The foreword alone will make you sick.
There are some students in Louisiana fighting the good fight in trying to repeal the state's passing of SB 70, allowing creationism to be taught in the public schools. "In Livingston Parish, Jan Benton, Director of Curriculum, told the Livingston Parish School Board that the law’s purpose is to allow the teaching of “critical thinking and creationism” in science classes." Quite frankly, I don't think the terms 'critical thinking' and 'creationism' belong in the same sentence.
