Study Break

A research paper assigned in a 10th-grade biology class at Franklin High School in Macon County, North Carolina has sparked a local controversy, according to the Smoky Mountain News.
“The student is to present SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCES for BOTH SIDES of the debate,” according to the teacher’s instructions. Students were given specific
topics to expound on: the age of the earth, radiometric dating, dinosaurs, Darwin’s theory, and the fossil record, among others.

“Make your argument using SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCES to support your stance,” the
teacher’s instructions stated.

That's the kind of assignment RSR used to love. Listing the scientific evidences for creationism or intelligent design wouldn't take any time at all. With an assignment like this, you're half done before you even start.
