Evolution, theory or fact?
Renowned scientist Jimmy Carter was successful in blocking the brave Georgia educator's effort to remove the word "evolution" from the textbooks.
Why? Her concern was that evolution is theory, not scientific fact.
Declaring evolution to be scientific fact is scientific vertigo. Why is the use of the word evolution so important to the educators? Our textbooks are permeated with it and any subject's study of land, sea or air begins with "millions of years ago. This theory is important because it is the very heart of dialectal materialistic philosophy, the philosophy of change that is so vital to the social scientist. It is vital that the definition of science had to be changed so that it can be preached as fact and not theory. Quoting the new definition of science as taught in our schools today, "there is no single scientific method," write the authors of the widely-used high school physics textbook, "Physics: Principles and Problems," by Paul Zitzewitz and Robert Neff, "Knowledge, skill, luck, imagination, trial and error, educated guesses, and great patience all play a part." With a definition like this, you could prove anything to be science. Professors and instructors that teach absolutes, boundaries, and facts are ridiculed and forced from the system. "It may have been, or it probably was, or I feel like it should be or might be" is the common language of the university today.
It's not peanuts we are paying for these textbooks.
