“Ironically, the evolutionists argue that creationists want to force their religious views on the texts. But just the teaching of biology does that and teaching evolution demonstrates that’s not how God did it. Since true, testable science trumps dogmatism, strike the final blow to the teaching of evolution–support the Bible, and adopt these books.”
The debate over the books pitted creationists– who found the text too filled with all those annoying fact-y things about evolution and who sought to interject some good ol’ Biblical principles in the books– against sound science advocates who think the text is just fine as is, sans the Bible. Then there was McLeroy, a devout creationist, who strangely considered the books weak when it came to evolution instruction and therefore, should be green lighted as is– for wholly different reasons.
