I see no problem letting them frame the discussion. They end up wrong no matter who leads. One way takes longer but they always end up backing themselves into a corner.<quoted text>
OK. I see your point. I agree. I try to never let the Christian frame the discussion whenever I'm aware its happening.
Also, people tend to learn better when not directly confronted or told outright that their ideas are wrong. It works best to ease them into the concept than to attempt humiliate them into submission. I understand that with religion it is not as easy as it would be with physics because of the fall back of "godditit".
But what do I know?..
"when we teach, we must take into account what the learners know, including their incorrect knowledge."
I understand that his paper is on teaching physics with multimedia but it does cover how people learn and it is quite interesting.
