|Three new statements on teaching origins in schools|
The past week saw the publication of three major new statements on the teaching of origins in schools.
These statements were covered in the media reports below:
The Independent Creationism should be tackled in science lessons, schools told
The Guardian Experts call for creationism in the classroom
The Daily Telegraph Creationism can be a topic in class
Evolution by natural selection...has lately come to function more as an antitheory, called upon to cover up embarrassing experimental shortcomings and legitimize findings that are at best questionable and at worst not even wrong.
Robert B. Laughlin, A Different Universe (New York: Basic Books, 2005)
