Teaching the controversy is fine, as long as one is clear that the controversy is a social/religious one and and not a scientific one.

  1. Oh yeah, but the controversy is so much easier to understand, isn’t it? Also, immersing oneself in the intellectual thrust and parry of a controversy doesn’t actually require that one give up his or her beliefs if evidence fails to support them. The controversy, in fact, seeks to cloud evidence and obscure its meaning. A scientist can never do that and still call himself a scientist.
