Glidie

(no subject)

so. interesting news piece here.

do you think it was fair to force them to take out the stickers?

personally, i think it wasn't. the stickers didn't say anything about creationism or any other theory. all they said was that the theory of evolution is just that. a theory. they can't prove it, it isn't fact. so they're getting the students to look at it with an open mind, rather than just accepting it as fact and teaching it as such. that's always how i was taught. i would have been happy if just one teacher stopped to mention it's just a theory, not fact, so to take it with a grain of salt.

after all, it was fact for a while there that the world was flat. and it was accepted for years until one guy decided to take a boat over the edge of the world and oops. found out it was round.

thoughts?
