Creation vs. Evolution Debate

"For administrators and many members of the governing board at Bryan, the new language is a buffer against what they see as a marked erosion of Christian values and beliefs across the country. But for critics, the clarification amounts to an assault on personal religious views, as well as on the college’s history and sense of community."

My comment about this article: Hopefully this will get people thinking and talking and writing bout the negative results of teaching evolution. Animal-like behavior is no longer the exception. We see it around us, not only in the media, but in our communities as well.  The use of animal training methods (Skinner/Pavlov Mastery Learning/Direct Insruction/Effective Schools) is accepted across the board as the method to teach  low-level academics and train for the workforce. 

This conversation is long overdue.
