- Some questions frequently asked by houseowners : i keep asking in vain for this: a creationist to explain what material you would teach in a biology class?
♥ some (not all) creationist want creationist material and subject matter covered in a biology course right alongside evolutionary principles. but i have yet to learn what would be taught as an addition to the course. obviously, if intelligent design were to be added, one could present and critique the theory of irreducible complexity (as in dr. hugh ross). but beyond that, i really have no idea beyond a few minutes of the first lecture where one summarizes the creationist concepts of various major religions. (the "controversy" can also be taught from supplementary readings and perhaps discussed in a current events class.) i'm just baffled as to what material creationism could add to a biology course. i'm not trying to mock anyone. i'm simply trying to understand what some creationists want to add to such courses. fed up with the crap here got confused so: repeat after me: " reading comprehension is important. reading comprehension is important." as in: "one could present and critique the theory of irreducible complexity " present and critique: look up the word "critique" and then you won't have to take extra medication unnecessarily. bizarre: you foam at the mouth over what you don't understand and then you explained why it was obvious that ross' theory had played a role in an important trial. you ended up making the very point that i had made! (or would you prefer to leave students clueless about how these theories have clashed.?) let's start over again. i will cover it slowly: the question i've been trying to get creationists to answer is what is it they are demanding to teach in the classroom? and i took a stab at it and assumed that they would be ross fans. (read it again. remember: reading comprehension is important.) wow. you'll never qualify for tenure at this rate. ++++++++++++++++++ kiwisda: it is interesting that i have a friend from grad school who i got to know when we lived in the same dorm. he could have written the post you wrote. he was definitely a yec, very literal 6-day creationist and he had a phd in theoretical physicals (or was it particle physics? i don't know the exact wording but it basically was theoretical physics which he did in his thesis because i did some proofing for him.) anyway, i just thought it was funny that psycho-teen had a cow over your self-description -- and he would never believe that even though i don't know you, i had that close friend who fit your description so closely. but it is interesting how so many people can lack the maturity to simply discuss ideas in a civil manner. (i never advocated anything in my question. i just simply asked those who have advocated adding creationism to the curriculum exactly what they would add. i guess that is just too threatening to the thought police out there. "questioner" wrote: a lot of helpful information. thanks! i'm saving the links for further study. it is also a breath of fresh air to see someone actually rationally comprehend that creationism and id are not the same thing!!! (so it is possible for some people to figure out the obvious!) many good reflections in this response.
