Truth, Lies and Science Education
The inbuilt bias of National Curriculum Science and US education system is examined. The teaching of Science under the National Curriculum (in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) is far from neutral. Rather, it is influenced by an inbuilt bias in favor of evolution and against Christianity. In areas pertaining to evolution, the curriculum acts against its own precepts of investigation and enquiry. This talk analyses the history of the National Curriculum, its implementation and the misapprehensions and miscomprehensions of educators.
About the Speaker:
Paul Taylor is the new Director the 7 Wonders Museum of Mount St. Helens. He taught science in state schools for 17 years, eventually becoming a Head of Department, and gained a Master's degree in Science Education at Cardiff University.
As a schoolteacher, Taylor frequently challenged pupils to think through the issue of origins for themselves, rather than accept evolutionary orthodoxy. These teaching methods, particularly as Taylor began developing curricula, frequently brought him into conflict with more evolutionary-minded staff.
Taylor joined the staff of AiG (UK/Europe) in August 2005 as a writer and speaker and eventually became the UK's Senior Speaker and Head of Media for AiG-UK. Taylor contributed regularly to the AiG website and Answers Magazine and continues writing numerous articles, many of which are published in various Christian magazines.
