Zach Weiner found a way to defeat all those teachers who want to teach Creationism in the classroom:
You can see how that plays out at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
You give leprechauns credibility when you add them as viable educational debate..
Why does patheos always try to crash my internet and shoot ads at me?
Next time somebody ends up with one of those “teach the controversy” nutjobs they should demand the teachers teach *all* of the creation myths. Before you can say “praise the Lord” the wingnuts will be whining about their kids being taught falsehoods and having no time for academics.
I would be happy to teach the controversy. I would be very happy to teach the political controversy, including an account of the efforts to repackage that political controversy as a scientific one.
Just like covering elections as a horse race and which candidate is getting the most money, rather than addressing issues. Sounds like a great job for journalism class and political science class, but not science class.
Love it. And also these t-shirts: http://controversy.wearscience.com/
