"Roger Taylor, a SUNY Oswego assistant professor of psychology, wants the next generation of science educators to understand that teaching evolution as doctrine, diametrically opposed to those who believe in intelligent design, sends an arrogant, counterproductive message to their students".
Immediately uses a strawman. Doctrine? Evolution is the only scientific theory for the subject. as is the germ theory for disease, the theory of gravity... doctrine?
"“When you start talking about the evolution of humans as people, it can be very frightening for some students and parents,” said Taylor
So? Tell them to grow up.
“In terms of the language they use, I would emphasize humbleness,” he said.“We seem to want to make firm statements. The more you know about science, the more you know that it’s tentative. In terms of evolution, let students know that this is our current theory, but it could be overturned".
The possibility of falsification makes no room for creationism/ID.
“Intelligent design can be considered a scientific theory,” he said.
"Taylor argues for an approach to evolution that involves showing, not telling—in an evidence-based, non-opinionated way – about the origin and development of species, and letting students learn to think for themselves".
It is called teaching.
“Science is a way of understanding the world. Science doesn’t talk about ethics and morals and how you should live your life,” Taylor said.“Religion deals with that.”
Actually, he isn't much of a psychologist if he thinks scientific disciplines haven't addressed ethics and morals.
Sounds like another godbot.
