American Daily has posted an interesting article by writer Robert Myers, “The Face of Evolution,” making the case that neo-Darwinism may be unfit for the classroom as it is a religion itself and that if it is allowed in other theories should be as well.
“The first time that I heard the concept of evolution presented as a religion or philosophy, I snickered at the audacity of such a proposition. But the more I have taken notice of how the arguments are made, the more I see the religious aspects of the evolutionary position.”
I have to point out –lest we be misquote– that our position remains that intelligent design theory should NOT be mandated, but that it is allowable for a teacher to discuss any scientific theory, including intelligent design. It is the quetioning and challenging of Darwin’s theory from a scientific basis that must be allowed to go on in the classroom.
