My daughter was told by her high school Biology teacher at the start of this year, 'If any of you don't believe in evolution, you should leave my class now.' She left. Evolution is *not* a scientific theory as it is neither disprovable nor provable. It is a position or viewpoint taken up by those who wish to not believe that 'In the beginning, God made ...'
I am quite content that there are people who wish to believe in evolution over creation. But, they should stop calling it 'science' and be honest: it is a 'credo', an 'I believe in ...' kind of position.
From my viewpoint, as a three-times graduate, the problem is that Biologists push evolutionism beyond what is scientifically reasonable. No-one can prove anything they believe as no-one was there when it happened. A good Historian would warn them of this.
I heard a BBC radio programme last week on the evolution of singing, and its purposes. It was as scientific as a blog from the extreme wing of creationism. It was speculation predicated on evolutionism packaged up as facts.
As a Christian, I believe that I already know why people can sing: in order to praise The LORD God who made heaven and earth. No amount of pseudo-science from the evolutionists can change that.
And, if evolutionists insists on teaching atheist evolutionary ideas, they should not be surprised that the smartest kids (which kids from religious backgrounds often are) opt out of their classes.
