In this article, the writer notes that for decades now the American school system has struggled with whether or not evolution should be taught in schools. The writer explains that the difficulty arises in that this scientific theory of origin appears to be at odds with the Judeo-Christian tradition of creation, and thus many conservative elements feel that it is a direct threat to the faith of their children. The writer points out that many religious scientists have in fact accepted that evolution and Christianity can co-exist, and moreover such a co-existence is the doctrine of the Catholic church at present. The writer concludes that if students receive proper education about the theories of origin, they will be able to understand that it is important to learn how to understand the world through science without devaluing other methods of understanding and the difference between science and faith-based knowledge will be one with which they are comfortable.
