Amanda L. Townley: Evolution Education and Science Literacy in the South

Amanda L. Townley draws on her experience as a former middle school and high school teacher and work as a professor in science education to raise the next generation of educators.


to get misguided Christians to be at ease with evolution you have to ask them if they really think the bible really meant God was sitting at the riverbank making mud pie humans. It is a poetic description of reality that can be understood by illiterate and intellectuals alike to allow them to form a worldview that gives them a meaningful interaction with reality. being acquainted with the scientific understanding of reality gives one a more complex picture. Once as a Christian you understand that survival fitness is not the ability to feed and f*** fastest but the ability to love thy neighbour like thyself you can accept evolution as the execution of the word of God it allows them to be more positive towards the process.
