Betsy DeVos . . . supports science teaching that “allows students to exercise critical thinking.” . . .

Within [the Intelligent Design] movement, “critical thinking” has become a code phrase to justify teaching of intelligent design.

  1. So “critical thinking” is code for “teach ID.”

Conversely, “teach science without critical thinking” must be code for “teach Darwinism only, positively and dogmatically.”

If evolutionists are positioning themselves as opposed to “critical thinking,” they have truly lost the rhetorical battle.

You go, Betsy!
