Does God Make a Difference?

Warren A. Nord

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that schools and universities are obligated to educate students in introductory science courses about alternative ways of making sense of nature, religious alternatives included, rather than simply train them in good science, even if scientists are confident that they have the truth firmly in their grasp. This position involves no special pleading for religion (much less, in this case, for some form of creationism); rather, it simply applies to science education the same principles that govern the role of religion in all parts of the curriculum given the requirements of a liberal education.

Keywords:   creationism, religion, religious studies, liberal education, science education
