A sensible post on evolution text-books

Here is a post, on the use of secular biology texts for homeschooling, that is spot-on.

Very refreshing. No flatulence-laden flash video Christmas presents. No unproductive, confrontational, and unfounded predictions. (Less than nine years to go; tick-tock, tick-tock.) (Which, by the way, arrived on the tail of another unproductive, confrontational, and unfounded prediction, one that failed miserably. Glenmorangie, si'l vous plait.) No unintentionally funny advice for trial lawyers. No top-secret orders of battle for a culture war. No endorsement for advocates of "Pleasureism" from the Institute of Noetic Sciences. No rallying to the defense of a holocaust denier. No lamenting the lack of acclaim for all I've done to advance science and enrich our understanding of the world.

Just a Christian, writing intelligently, on a small aspect of that fascinating intersection between Christianity and science.
