“Scientist urges teaching of creationism in schools” blared headlines after the director of education at the U.K.’s Royal Society merely suggested that teachers be allowed to discuss creationism in science lessons, if students raise the issue. Days later, the biologist Michael Reiss was forced to resign.
Under attack from other Royal Society fellows—who argued that Reiss’s affiliation with the Church of England invalidated his scientific credentials—Reiss asserted that “creationism has no scientific basis.” Yet soon after, the embattled Reiss resigned his Royal Society position.
By attacking one of their own, staunch evolutionists remind us that Darwinian theory can’t stand competition, not even legitimate questions from students.
