Maybe someone can explain this to me. Most, if not all, Baptist churches and schools teach that creationism is true and evolution is false. Then, why does the largest Baptist university in the world teach that creationism is false and evolution is true?
“Evolution, a foundational principle of modern biology, is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence and is accepted by the vast majority of scientists. Because it is fundamental to the understanding of modern biology, the faculty in the Biology Department at Baylor University, Waco, TX, teach evolution throughout the biology curriculum. We are in accordance with the American Association for Advancement of Science’s statement on evolution. We are a science department, so we do not teach alternative hypotheses or philosophically deduced theories that cannot be tested rigorously.”
From Richard Duhrkopf, an associate professor of biology at Baylor, on teaching science in the public schools:
“We shouldn’t be teaching the supernatural in science classrooms,” Duhrkopf said. “It’s time to keep religion and faith in the Sunday schools and not in the public schools.”
