Science and Creation: Geological, Theological & Educational Perspectives.
Hanson, Robert W., Ed.
This book provides working examples of how different teachers, scientists, and theologians have dealt with problems of "creation science" versus evolutionary concepts. A 1982 symposia on the topic of science and creation was so well received that the participants were asked to submit formal presentations; this book is a collection of these papers. The papers include: (1) "Introduction: Science or Belief, a False Dichotomy" (Robert W. Hanson); (2) "The Age of the Earth, of Life, and of Mankind: Geology and Biblical Theory versus Creationism" (James W. Skehan, S.J.); (3) "Science, Rationality, and the Creation/Evolution Dispute" (Dorothy Nelkin); (4) "Science versus Revealed Truth: Meeting the Challenge of Creationism in the Classroom" (Wayne Moyer); (5) "Creationism in Iowa: Two Defense Strategies" (Stanley Weinberg); (6) "Creationism in Kentucky: The Response of High School Biology Teachers" (William E. Ellis); (7) "A Two-Model Creation versus Evolution Course" (William M. Thwaites); (8) "Educational Approaches to Creationist Politics in Georgia" (Kenneth Saladin); (9) "Creation, Evolution, or Both? A Multiple Model Approach" (Craig E. Nelson); (10) "Skepticism: Another Alternative to Science or Belief" (Stephen G. Brush); and (11) "The Creationism Issue: A Theologian's View" (Langdon Gilkey). Included in the appendices are "The Arkansas Creation Science Statute" (Act 590 of 1981) and "Creationism in Schools: The Decision in McLean versus the Arkansas Board of Education." (TW)
