Re: World History student needs our input

For your paper I might compare the current debate between creationism and evolution with the previous debate between geocentrism and heliocentrism. This debate happened many years ago between science (ie Galileo) and religion (ie The Inquisition). It has a lot of similarities with the debate between science and religion today.

Re: World History student needs our input
Exactly, there is your debate. I, a christian say GOD created. You say (I assume) that life, in general, evoloved. And so it goes. I say we should teach creationism and evolution with the same vigor and let the students study it for themselves and come to an educated conclusion. Anybody here have a problem with that. -Z

That is the discussion. Should religious views be part of a natural science? This is what led to the debate between the Church and Galileo. Galileo, using science, said that the earth orbited the sun. The Church, using scripture, said that the sun orbited the earth. Which should we teach, that science is wrong if it contradicts the bible or that our interpretation of the Bible is wrong if it contradicts science?
