RE: darwism taught in school question
Ok i get all of this. But im still bot understanding how it is taught in schools? Are we saying its darwism or is it obsorbed into evolution?
Im asking because she says they are still teaching darwism in science as a science and as true fact how darwn wrote it up.

I did explain to her tjat it was refined and not taught how it was in its original content as we get new info we refine the theroy as we do with all theroies.

Am i understanding it right?

Oh for fucks sake..

Which class did you learn about evolution?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Darwin's ideas (Which he published etc) are 150 years old.

So, to say they are 'Out dated' is to say Newton's ideas about gravity etc are 'Out dated'.

They haven't been 'Replaced' so much as 'Refined'.

Newton's ideas have been tested and found to be correct. Since Darwin's time we have discovered that living beings are much more complex than he realized. That complexity means that the odds against life developing without intelligent guidance are much greater than Darwin believed they were.

The information in ancient libraries came from real minds of real people. The far more complex information in cells came from the far more intelligent mind of God.

Posting from phone.

To Theophilus, you're wrong.

What previous two comments convince me is to post at home with more time and and keyboard etc.

It's scientific history; in the world of modern science, what was Darwinism no longer has any strength, having been supplanted and built upon many times, it is irrelevant in function.
But, much like the history that has become of Ancient Rome, it still has ramifications as the foundation of modern biology.

I see no problem teaching it in history as history, or in science as scientific history within the context of evolutionary theory today.

So how is it taught in schools? As history or science or is it obsorbed into evolution? Or is it taught as something separate issue? Im not quite understanding how it is taught?

I don't understand why that is even a question.

The Theory of Evolution (the modern synthesis) is taught as science because it is science.

"Darwinism" isn't taught anywhere that I know of. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Funny enough, seeing as newton's idea of gravity was replaced by eistein's, and natural selection is still relevant.

You or she (or both) seem to be missing the point. Darwinism is just a mostly Christian term for evolution. That's all.

Technically Darwinism isn't taught in schools evolution by natural selection is. But religious types call it Darwinism.
