Brad Templeton's Blog

I usually don't link to other people's blogs, but this is a good point that is worth expanding on.

The ability to discern the truth is perhaps the most important skill anyone can ever be taught. Creationists do us an unwitting favor when they insist 'Just a Theory'. It is just a theory, everything is science is just a theory. We should be inculcating our children, not with scientific platitudes, however detailed or certain, but with great and hard won process of scientific acquisition of knowledge. With the ability to use science, use math, use simple uncomplicated things that are hardly worth ten questions on a multiple choice exam, and hardly anyone knows to separate fakirs from researchers at a glance.
