The Arizona Department of Education is considering implementing new science standards for its high school curriculum
The Arizona Department of Education is considering implementing new science standards for its high school curriculum, including altering several references to evolution.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas says the changes would reflect that parts of evolution are only theory and not scientific fact.
While Douglas personally believes in creationism, she told KTVK-TV that her beliefs about intelligent design are not included anywhere in the new standards, which have yet to be approved.
“What we know is true and what we believe might be true but is not proven and that’s the reality,” Douglas said. “Evolution has been an ongoing debate for almost 100 years now. There is science to back up parts of it, but not all of it.”
