I am teaching for the first time, a community college class on Human
biology. We just finished a section on evolution and I was STUNNED to
discover that the majority of my class thinks that science is out to
There was nary a person in my class of 60 who thought that scientists
could be Chrisitian. I pointed out that scientists have more than
enough inexplicable things to work on in the natural world without
delving into the supernatural.
But, I was hoping that a scientist in this group, who has put together
for themselves, a nuts and bolts explanation of how the creation story
works into evolution could pass it to me. Therefore, I could say in
class ... "some scientists believe..."
Feel free to nail me if this is a bad idea. My main goal is to give
these students who are unaquainted with science an appreciation for
science, especially biology. I sure don't want them to think scientists
are out to GET THEM.
Thanks for your help
