I have recently looked at the AQA syllabus for RE , on science and religion theey have this nonsensical and polarised course . How on earth did this get through?
Could you explain what you mean by the following
'on science and religion theey have this nonsensical and polarised course .'
Just consider this silly false polarisation ;
Scientific versus religious truth through the followingtwo foci:• origins of the universe – Big Bang versusGenesis 1 creation story;
The only ones who would agree with that would be an extreme atheist or a creationist.
also what is the Cosmological Revolution?
'The only ones who would agree with that would be an extreme atheist or a creationist.'
Both sides have their proponents, both sides claim evidence. Shouldn't students have both sides presented so they can make informed decisions?
I am a GCSE student at the moment, currently taking the exact course you described.
The course is designed around representation of all the viewpoints out there - the Roman Catholic outlook is emphasised, along with the 'scientific' viewpoint (Big Bang Theory etc.) however, we are encouraged to evaluate a question from as many angles as possible - in fact, extra marks are awarded for looking at a statement from lots of points of view, and them summarising with a personal opinion.
Hopefully that clear up any issues - the course is not 'polarised' in any way.
