Testifying before the Texas School Board of Education, Engenie Scott head of the special interest group says there are no weaknesses in evolution. First time ever a scientific theory has been proclaimed such status since Newton’s Law of Physics.
Conflicting data has often arises in the theory of evolution. For instance, evolutionists say the fossil record depicts one story while on other hand biological molecules tell a different story, as a result, it has lead to the dismantling of the Darwin Tree for some Darwinists who are looking for alternatives in the structure of evolution. This is most certainly a weakness in evolution (fossils saying one thing, and biological molecules saying another) which ought to be taught to school children who attend public schools.
What is generally the response to such conflicting data with evolution? To them, it’s not the issue of what is not explainable, but rather it’s the progress of science which is currently unable to explain it at this time but eventually will be able to explain the conflicting data with evolution. On the other hand, creationists are more concerned about substance, because true science will always confirm God’s Word.
Although I believe advocating no weaknesses in a scientific theory known as evolution (or any other scientific theory) which has to explain an array and diverse complexities of nature is certainly misleading the public and certainly not teaching children all sides in the realm of science. It’s more like indoctrination of science (remains dogma until replaced) rather than just teaching science or in this case, evolution.
So why are defenders of evolution like Engenie Scott so against in wanting the as-yet unexplained problems being taught in the public schools? Are they fearful, the evolutionary theory wouldn’t hold up in the minds of children? The answer is, most likely “yes” because creationism according to the courts is not allowed in public schools so there is no real present threat of creationism to be afraid of replacing evolution or being taught alongside evolution. Even if creationism was scientific in their minds, it still could not be taught, because “it’s religion” the likes of Engenie Scott would say.
But some teachers also say they do teach “weaknesses” in evolution alongside the strengths. Sure there might teachers out there who select a few particulars what I call “safe” items which are controversial (a term they like to use instead of weakness) in evolution which some might mention in passing with approval of others but over all as-yet explained problems in evolutionary theory alludes practical and balanced teaching in the public schools.
