Snarcasm: ciberido: Snarcasm: hailin: My textbook had creationsim, but it was more of a "some people believe there was a supernatural being (God) that created earth, some think it was extraterrestrial (aliens implanted us here), and some believe it was evolution. Choose whatever you want to believe. Moving on." If it is like that I don't see what the big controversey is all about. Offering a multitude of choices and letting the students actually think for themselves! What a novel concept!Exactly. Evolution is a science with no practical purpose. Peleo profs publish a paper every few years moving an extinct species around on the giant evolution wall chart.As a science it applies perfectly to mechanical engineering./unless I need to worry about those bobcat kittens turning into 500 pound maneaters.I would award you 10/10 if your name didn't give the game away. Or rather, I probably would have bitten hard and not given you a score until much later.Mostly serious.The problem with the "evolving e coli" is typical of most evolution science. It is too similar to the cold fusion hoopla, you can not replicate it or prove it and it is most likely a contanination error.Evolution is taught like philosophy. Teach Mendulson genetics, teach the scientific method.Right now evolutionary theory is being taught as "philosophical proof of no divine being." Commentors wonder how people can even survive in the world without evolution. Can you tell me when you used it for a practical purpose?
SharkaPult: ciberido: [Awesomeness in this thread]Cib, you are doing the lords wor-.... Err.. Um. Technically I guess not.But you are doing a great job. I'm fighting a similar fight in my neck of the woods. Much appreciated to see others carrying the torch so to speak.
