TheConversation.com touts itself as having “academic rigor” combined with “journalistic flair”. In polite society today, creationism is usually out of bounds for this milieu. However, I was surprised to find that, in a recent article, they at least seemed to promote the idea of treating creationism with respect not just in history, but in STEM subjects.
The article says that modern ways of teaching are problematic for students because the subjects
prevent them from using their cultural worldviews, spirituality and language in the STEM learning setting.
So what, specifically did they mean by spirituality? I clicked on the link, and lo and behold, it was about teaching creationism in the classroom!
Anyway, I would not have guessed that TheConversation would have had such an overnight shift from calling creationism a conspiracy theory to saying it should be a part of science class.
It’s possible I’m misreading the article somehow, but I don’t think I am. I would love to have other people’s take on this.
