An answer to the "teach both sides" argument


Red State Rabble exposes the hypocrisy in the recent statement by the President with regards to "intelligent design" creationism that "Both sides ought to be properly taught [evolution and intelligent design], so people can understand what the debate is about."

Remember this the next time you hear ID advocates pontificating that students should be exposed to "both sides of the debate" in science class.

I would suggest that kids might take more interest in evolutionary theory if teachers prefaced it by saying that, "Kids, we're gonna talk about something today that your parents don't want you to know! They're afraid you'll go KA-RAZY when you learn about EVIL-LUTION!" It wouldn't really work, of course...
