Science is generally regarded as objective and neutral, and evolution is taught as fact in most schools today. However, although scientists study the same evidence, not all agree on what this evidence points to. Differing worldviews gives rise to different conclusions.
The new Science Teaching Guides developed by Christian Education Europe aim to cover a variety of subjects in a comprehensive but balanced way. A distinction is made between established scientific facts and the way these are interpreted by those holding different beliefs about origins. While developed for independent schools that are not required to follow the National Curriculum, these guides have been designed to cover all the material required by the National Curriculum in at least as much detail as other teaching guides, while also providing an understanding of Biblical creationist views.
They are suitable for students, staff and parents to educate themselves on these important topics.
Genetics and Evolution covers subjects such as covers subjects such as heredity, variation and adaptation. It equips the student to understand more about the creation/evolution debate and explains how both sides view the data.
Space Physics includes the topic of cosmology and responds to the claim that Genesis teaches a cosmology that is in conflict with scientific observations. It also covers the required topics of gravity force, our sun and galaxy, seasons, and the light year as a unit of astronomical distance.
Science is often regarded as free from the values and beliefs of earlier, ‘less-informed generations’. But do current schemes of work accurately reflect the true history of science? Or is there an implicit assumption of materialism, permitting only naturalistic explanations?
Philosophy of Science explores these and related issues. The intention is that students will be taught how to think, rather than what to think!
