Teach the Debate!

This article in the San Francisco Chronicle is about as good of an introduction to the evolution wars going on in public high schools, and now in the courts. While I am not as suspicious of evolutionary theory as many say I should be, I am annoyed at the fact that any challenges to the ubernarrative of Darwinian evolution must be squelched. Because the Left has bought into determinist materialism and evolution's supposed ability to explain "why" rather than just "how," even questioning the prevailing orthodoxy must be immediately silenced, less their own special Genesis story be undermined. I say, "teach the debate." Evolutionary theory has obvious holes, like the lack of evidence in the fossil record, so why is there such a relunctance to say so? As Orwell said, "smelly little orthodoxies."
