I came across this one in my daily news feed:
I find this incredible. This is straight from the Royal Society's Director of Education!? Somebody whom I would expect to know better.
Not that I mind creationism, but since it cannot be called science, it should not be taught during the science lessons. Creationism has been de-bunked more times that I can count. If they really wanted to teach that in schools,it would fit better in other subjects, such as social sciences or theology. But definitely not science. Science is about evidence, logic and proof. Not belief despite the facts.
I have children whom I expect to be educated. They will have very little chance of understanding science if they start teaching non-science subjects in the science lessons.
Call me a cynic (I won't be offended). I would not be surprised to see other pseudoscience subjects appear on the school curriculum soon,for example:
- Feng shui
just to name a few...
Something is definitely rotten in the United Kingdom.
It is time for me to take a more active role in teaching my children important subjects, such as:
- Critical Thinking
