Then there is the continuing evolution debate as well


Here we have yet another case of the government getting its panties in a bunch over the question, "What happens next?" If they claim that evolution is not fully proven (and it isn't), that also means they have to say the same thing about quantum mechanics (also not fully proven) and Freud (who will NEVER be proven).

What is the problem with telling students that this stuff isn't fully proven? Our physics teacher does a unit on STRING THEORY, and THAT is simply an exercise in extreme mathematics. It is ENTIRELY theoretical. . .and yet is taught in a science class.

I fail to see how evolution, quantum theory and especially Freud can't also be taught that way. Heck, I ALREADY teach Freud in that way.
