Time to Teach the Controversy...

In going through my backlog of magazines on the nightstand, I found this gem in a recent Skeptic (Volume 16, #2).

It's time to teach the controversy: (external link) Since creationism isn't going away, let's use it in the classroom to teach the difference between Science and Pseudoscience by Christopher Baum

Mr. Baum basically advocates what I have been pushing for over ten years now on my main site (Dealing with Creationism in Astronomy) and here - use the pseudosciences in the classroom as demonstrations of how science determines what hypotheses fail and why.
