Sir Says, ‘God created the World’ – Questions About Teaching The Controver[sies] In Schools

Recently I read a link via Twitter about allowing a homeopath to present to a group of schoolchildren and I had some doubts about the wisdom of teachers doing this – primarily because I don’t know much about the context of what the students really knew about the topic (and whether their parents, and other staff members knew of the lecture, but I guess you can ask on the site) – and also because of ongoing debates about teaching claims like creationism in schools. Are they equivalent?

Here’s Alom Shaha on Voice of Russia London:

VOR’s Brendan Cole discusses this with Andy McIntosh, the co-director of the group Truth in Science; Geoff Chapman, the director of the Creation Resources Trust; Peter Williams, from the group Catholic Voices; Roger Stanyard, the spokesman for the British Centre for Science Education and Alom Shaha, the science teacher and author of The Young Atheists’ Handbook.
