Home schoolers teaching creationism and evolution as equal theories – Australia

first_imgSydney Morning Herald 8 September 2014Christian parents who home school their children in NSW have admitted they teach creationism as part of science, despite it not being part of the state’s curriculum.Parents, teachers and students from across the state have told a parliamentary inquiry into home schooling they consider creationism, the belief that the universe was created by God, to be a valid scientific theory.Representatives from the Home Education Support and Action Network, where the majority of members are Christian, said they believed creationism and evolution should be taught as equal theories. And the four teenagers who presented evidence to the committee on Friday said they believed creationism was a valid scientific theory.At the hearing on Monday, the general manager of Australian Christian Home Schooling, Dr Terry Harding, said creationism was taught as part of science but accepted it was not a scientific theory.“There would be some of it in the science section,” he said. “We wouldn’t say that’s a scientific theory, but in the curriculum we would provide information as to the creation idea of origins and the evolutionary idea of origins.”He argued it was relevant to science because it related to the natural world and was part of a continuing scientific debate.“But in terms of scientific methodology, which is based on observation, there was no one at the beginning, whether it was the big bang or a creation, and thus it’s not scientific methodology,” he said. “However, because it relates to the natural world and science relates to the natural world, it’s relevant.”http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/home-schoolers-teaching-creationism-and-evolution-as-equal-theories-20140908-10dze3.htmllast_img read more

Sherwood seeking to win safety race

first_img Sherwood, before becoming head coach, was at Tottenham as assistant first-team coach under Harry Redknapp and worked with Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe at White Hart Lane. The 32-year-old returned to England in January after a year with Toronto in Major League Soccer and Sherwood believes Defoe is the Black Cats’ chief threat. He said: “If they are going to survive it’s going to be Jermain Defoe who keeps them in the Premier League, that’s why they forked out that sort of money for him. “He didn’t have to go, he went for a lifestyle change to Canada but he still has that appetite to come back and play for Sunderland, in a relegation battle. “Jermain can score goals on his own but he prefers people to slide the ball across the six-yard box for him to be in the right place at the right time, that’s what he’s done all of his career.” Press Association And with the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday, Sherwood is hoping Villa, who have never been relegated from the Premier League, can avoid being unseated. He said: “I think it’ll be a photo finish and I hope we’re not in it. “We’re probably just coming around the corner but it’s probably the longest run-in in racing history. “All we’re looking at is the next fence and that’s Sunderland. After that we hope we can stay in the running, there might be a few who fall along the way and we’re hoping that’s not us.” Villa have won their last two under Sherwood, beating West Brom twice in the league and the FA Cup to reach the semi-finals. They were the new manager’s first wins since replacing Paul Lambert in February and Sherwood has been impressed with the squad’s attitude. “They’ve been good and a win makes an awful lot of difference. They have been focused and up for the fight,” he said. “They haven’t dwelt on the position. It’s about looking forward now, what we have done previously counts for nothing.” Tim Sherwood insists Aston Villa are ready for the home straight and wants to avoid a photo finish in the relegation battle. The boss takes his Barclays Premier League thoroughbreds to Sunderland on Saturday for a crunch clash. The Black Cats are a point and a place ahead of fourth bottom Villa, who themselves are just three points above the drop zone. last_img read more

Obisia, Aransiola Frustrated Joshua from Representing Nigeria, Says Okorodudu

first_img“Joshua really wanted to represent Nigeria at the 2008 Olympics but Obisia Nwankpa and Samson Aransiola deprived him of the opportunity. But now Britain is enjoying what Nigeria should be celebrating,” Okorodudu observed yesterday.Okorodudu said he was not surprised when Joshua said he valued his Olympic medal more than his IBF world title belt.“Of course, he (Joshua) must appreciate the Olympic gold more than the world title belt considering the shabby way he was treated by Nigeria. Moreover, it is the dream of every boxer to win an Olympic gold before forging a professional career,” stressed Okorodudu.But in a swift reaction to Okorodudu’s claim, Nwankpa insisted that he did not frustrate Joshua in his quest to represent Nigeria at the 2008 Olympics.“His (Joshua) case is not the first. We’ve had similar cases like that before. Most of our athletes that live or were born abroad, anytime they want to represent Nigeria they do not go about it in the right way.“Moreover, most of them have the belief that by virtue of living abroad they could just walk into the team without going through the normal selection trials. That is not acceptable,” stressed Nwankpa on why procedure must be followed in selecting athletes to represent Nigeria.Joshua grew up for much of his early years in Nigeria and returned to the UK to join Kings Langley Secondary School.Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, Joshua was called ‘Femi’ by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name ‘Oluwafemi’.He excelled at football and athletics and broke the Year Nine 100m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Kunle AdewaleIt should have been Nigeria and not the United Kingdom that is celebrating the IBF world title won by Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua had his zeal to compete for Team Nigeria at the 2008 Beijing Olympics not been frustrated.THISDAY can authoritatively report that Joshua who stopped Charles Martin in two rounds at London’s O2 Arena at the weekend to claim the IBF heavyweight title in only his 16th professional fight did everything to compete for Nigeria eight years ago but got frustrated by the national coaches at the time. He won gold for England at the London 2012 Olympic Games before winning the IBF title.Los Angeles 1984 Olympian, Jeremiah Okorodudu, revealed to THISDAY wednesday that Joshua who was born in Watford to a Nigerian mother (Obafemi Martins) and a father of Nigerian and Irish descent (James McClean) would have become the first Nigerian boxer to win an Olympic gold medal had he not been allegedly frustrated by Obisia Nwankpa and Samson Aransiola. Nigeria’s quest for an Olympic gold medal remains a mirage.last_img read more
