Science Article Summary for ENSI by Craig E. Nelson (26 Feb. 2002)


This site prefers to focus on lessons which clearly point to evolution as a viable explanation of the real world, rather than engaging in argumentative dialogue with young-earth creationists. However, part of that reality is the fact that all teachers can expect verbal challenges from students and parents from a deeply entrenched creationist perspective, usually based on misconceptions of the nature of science and evolution. Therefore, teachers should be prepared to deal with such confrontations, both tactfully and knowledgeably. The following are excellent resources for this. Remember, even as science teachers, we can talk about religion (if appropriate), but we cannot legally (or ethically) advocate nor ridicule any particular belief system.

Articles Effectively Addressing the Evolution vs Creation Issues for Teachers
These articles, mostly appearing in the Reports of the National Center for Science Education, and many of them written by its Executive Director, Eugenie Scott, provide excellent insights and strategies for dealing with these issues in the classroom. Here are are the titles to some of the best articles:
Design YES, Intelligent NO - A Critique of Intelligent Design Theory and Neocreationism
[This link takes you off-site] An essay by Massimo Pigliucci, published in The Skeptical Inquirer, Sep/Oct 2001, pp.34-39. The claims by Behe, Dembski, and other "intelligent design" creationists that science should be opened to supernatural explanations and that these should be allowed in academic as well as public school curricula are unfounded and based on a misunderstanding of both design in nature and of what the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution is all about. Clear and revealing, addressing some of the rebuttals of IDT proponents to their critics. If you are getting challenges from your students about ID, read this.
Is Life Too Complex to Have Simply Evolved?
A Critical Review of Behe's Darwin's Black Box, with many useful bits of information.
David Ussery
Associate Research Professor at the Danish Technical University in Denmark
Answers to Jonathan Wells'
"Ten Questions to Ask Your Biology Teacher"

From the National Center for Science Education
Jonathan Wells, the author of Icons of Evolution, composed "Ten questions to ask your biology teacher about evolution", based on the anti-evolutionary claims he makes in his book. However, many of Wells' claims are incorrect or misleading; Icons of Evolution and "Ten questions..." are intended only to create unwarranted doubt in students' minds about the validity of evolution as good science.
Wells is wrong to think that his questions pose any challenge to evolution. In the interest of responding to Wells' erroneous claims and setting the record straight, NCSE has prepared answers to his ten questions.
You will also find a very nice PowerPoint presentation available from this page (thanks to SENSI teacher Tony Hiatt).
Design Isn't Science:
Why Biology Classes Shouldn't Teach Intelligent Design

Craig E. Nelson
ENSI Co-Director Craig Nelson wrote this article for the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette Perspective page, Sunday, Aug. 28, 2005. He discusses four common reasons why ID should not be taught in biology classes: 1. It is not science; 2. It would be unconstitutional; 3. Defending such requirement would require substantial legal costs; and
4. It would hold back local or regional economic development.
He adds a crucial fifth reason: teachers would be forced to critically confront religious beliefs of students, probably resulting in non-productive defensiveness by students, and precious time focusing on the false claims of ID and creationist proponents.
