I am for teaching evolution.
I don't exactly believe in it, but I still want it taught. And I don't mean as some kind of museum thing to remind us how dumb evolution was, either. I want to be taught how species differentiate, how things happen.
I don't believe Adam and Eve evolved. Beyond that, I don't have much to say on the subject that's very smart. I've heard lots of whacky theories from a shifting speed of light to full-blown deistic evolution, but straight, scientific evolution has some things going for it that none of the other theories have.
Scientists have built the many little details they have found into a compelling narrative that successfully predicts new discoveries, and allows us to make generally sound decisions about things. You can USE evolution to decide stuff.
Ancient pagans developed no science largely because they believed everything was spontaneous. If a bunch of capricious gods kept randomly deciding to throw droughts and floods at you, you could only placate them and survive. If you tried to beat the gods, they'd just beat you back even worse. What they wanted was what they got, and despair was the only hope.
Christianity came along and taught everyone that there was one God, and He was reasonable. Droughts came, but they were not biblical. You could irrigate, and take control of the environment, and God would not rise up and send something worse at you. Instead, you could make your crops yield twice a year with a couple little ditches, and God would not send Wormwood to dry up all the seas.
Science, though, took it a step further. Christianity leapfrogged paganism, but science has lept over us. They measured the results of their experiments, and found better ways to everything. They self-criticized, and found truths they didn't want to hear. Peer-review made the most brilliant scientist smarter, by making him dig deeper to find the real reason things happen instead of the first thing that convinced everyone at the local pub (or cathedral.)
Christianity is based on Truth, but it's based on truth, too. If we are going to pass science back again, we need to start showing a little courage in that area. We need to start submitting to review and correction. We need to let the facts trump our ancient dogmas, and find the truth that the Truth laid out there.
Evolution explains the world I live in better than young earth creationism.
Admit it or top it.
Don't rail against it.
