← MUST WE ALWAYS CATER TO THE FAITHFUL WHEN TEACHING SCIENCE?

Old Sarum is right, that there are a lot of scientists, like Francis Collins, who are willing to be trotted out to support reconciliation. As individuals, that's fine, that is indeed their job. Have you read Collins' book? It's just plain silly. Not only the triune frozen waterfall, but a ghastly misapplication of Bayesian statistics that must make one question his reputation as a competent scientist. That's their job -- to say silly things. But that is NOT the job of professional science organizations, and they should know better.
