Teaching Evolution

There was an interesting article on some issues related to religion and the teaching of evolution in the New York Times on Sunday. I particularly liked this quote from a teacher:

“Faith is not based on science,” Mr. Campbell said. “And science is not based on faith. I don’t expect you to ‘believe’ the scientific explanation of evolution that we’re going to talk about over the next few weeks.”

“But I do,” he added, “expect you to understand it.”
