Wow. Just wow. The Darwinists are not happy with Florida’s new science standards because – get this – they will actually call evolution a theory. Gasp! Oh no! I can’t believe they are going to call evolution a “theory,” I mean how crazy is that to call it what it actually is! Are these people serious?
There are two reasons to oppose the new mandatory characterization of evolution as theory. The first is that non-scientists often use the word “theory” to describe assumptions based on limited information or knowledge, and public school classrooms are filled with kids, not scientists. Forcing this new theory label into the science curriculum is a transparent effort to confuse our children.
Huh? Calling evolution what it is – a theory – is an attempt to confuse children? What?
Let’s not forget that this all started because Darwinists insisted that Florida teachers use the correct terminology. The science standards already talked about the theory of evolution, they just didn’t name it, so students were getting the technical content, but not getting the specific terminology. So, the word “evolution” was added. Now, the Darwinists are upset because they want to use the specific terminology that describes what evolution is. What a bunch of hypocrites.
The second reason to oppose the theory label is we should not teach our children that faith and reason are interchangeable.
Again, what in the world is this person talking about? Can this person actually be serious about this? Calling evolution what it is – a theory – is the same as teaching our children that faith and reason are interchangeable? This is ridiculous.
The more cynical side of me wants to say that the Darwinists are looking for exactly that though, to teach that faith and reason are interchangeable, so long as the faith employed is Darwinian faith. Don’t teach kids about science and what theories are, just tell them that Darwinism is true. Don’t confuse kids with the facts, just tell them that Darwinism is fact. This is blurring the lines between faith and reason.
