  •  What if the teacher believes in creationism? (2+ / 0-)

    Would they be willing to tell their class that creationism is 'bad science,' as you say? I don't think so.

    Your idea is not a bad one but after having lived in states like Texas where I'm met teachers that truly believe that creationism is a valid scientific theory, I have doubts that you could have a fair discussion in a science classroom. It would be interesting if you required them to submit the theory to the scientific method - but I have no doubts that there is a lesson plan online that does exactly that and somehow manages to prove that creationism is a valid theory. Your idea would work only if teachers are willing to teach the facts.
