Evolution and science – a series of op-eds

A series of three articles dealing with science, evolution, and intelligent design / intelligent origin theory (ID/IOT) is up.

Intelligent science education policy: What are we not teaching about science, that we should? What are the rules that make something "science"?
Evolution and science: Does evolution fit those rules?
Evolution – How scientific are the alternatives? In particular, is ID/IOT science?

And then back in May, I wrote Evolution, Education, and Critical Thought – a look at what the call to "teach students to think critically about evolution" might result in. If we think critically about evolution, it's only fair to think critically about the alternatives, right?
