Baum, Christopher
June 2009
Skeptic;2009, Vol. 15 Issue 2, p42
The article presents the author's views regarding the teaching of creationism in the classrooms. He states that the teachers and educators must teach the real controversy about the origin and development of life based on rational, scientific and intellectual point of view and not on nonexistent idea of creation. He argues that creation science and intelligent design do not present scientific ideas because their fundamental claim is based on the influence of a supernatural entity.
