Another issue is that the evolution community has a tendency to design experiments with specific results in mind. Example given is the Miller-Urey Experiment. The materials used in the original experiemnt were used in order to get the specific results, and were not chosen to accurately represent the atmosphere of the early Earth.
Another example is Carbon Dating. It is a common practice in the carbon dating circle to throw out dates that are not within the pre-determined date of the person submitting the test. Not to mention that this method of dating is only accurate on objects a few thousand years old.
Very astute observation. Last night on NBC News there was a story about Intelligent Design vs Evolution in PA schools.

I know that is a simplistic statement and not very profound on the surface. But, truly that is what is needed more in schools. Just don’t give kids info that they must regurgitate back…but give them the data to process and absorb.
