Can subjects like biology and astronomy be taught accurately without covering evolution?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 17, 2005
“No, because it is a fundamental part of those subjects. That would be like talking about politics without mentioning money.”
“No. Absolutely not. The theory of evolution is an overlying theme that biology is based on. They may be able to get away with teaching astronomy without it, but not biology.”
“No, because they wouldn’t be teaching everything they know about the subject. They should teach children everything that is available without any exclusion.”
“No. I think it’s better to teach those subjects by sticking to scientific theory and fact. That way they don’t have to worry about religious beliefs weighing in.”
