FYSP 166 - The Crusade Against Evolution

4 HU, WRi
First Semester. The teaching of evolutionary theory is under attack in many secondary school districts in the US. This course will research the history, science, politics and legal maneuvering of this particular conflict between science and religion. We will explore the structure of scientific research and methods, what distinguishes science from pseudoscience, the history of the creationist and intelligent design movements, and how the two sides in this debate are often talking past each other, with little common ground.

Prerequisites & Notes
P/NP only.
Enrollment Limit: 14.
