The purpose of this originseducation.org web-site is to provide scientific information that challenges the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution and promote the New Mexico Controversial Science Topics Education Bill.
Education about biological evolution has implications pertaining to where we come from, who we are, how we view the world, and pertaining to our religious beliefs.
Darwinian evolution is often taught in our public schools without critical discussion. In addition, relevant scientific evidence that challenges Darwinian evolution is often excluded. Excluding evidence on one side of a controversial scientific issue prevents scientific objectivity. Our students must be exposed to relevant scientific evidence on both sides of neo-Darwinian theory to develop an informed and objective understanding of this controversial topic.
The proposed New Mexico Controversial Science Topics Education Bill stipulates that teachers cannot be prohibited from including relevant scientific information on either the strengths or weaknesses pertaining to controversial scientific topics (including biological and chemical evolution) when those subjects are taught in the public schools. The bill pertains solely to the teaching of scientific information and specifically does not protect the promotion of any religion, religious doctrine, or religious belief.
Students may be held accountable for knowing and understanding material taught, but they may not be penalized because they subscribe to a particular position on the controversial scientific topic being taught.
