The National Center for Science Education said [science teacher John] Freshwater should never even have mentioned creationism or the theory of intelligent design [in a public school classroom].
[As said by the NCSE] “The theory of evolution is universally accepted by scientists and Freshwater’s ‘alternatives’ to evolution are religious beliefs, not science.”
If an idea is “universally accepted”, does that mean it must be true?
