Probably the most important thing that you can learn in school is how to formulate an opinion, articulate that opinion, and, ultimately, defend that opinion. Throughout the school year, you are asked to express your thoughts, ideas and views on a variety of issues. Because an uneducated opinion lacks validity, it is of utmost importance to become educated on the issue or topic that is being examined or discussed. Recently, in biology, in preparation for a debate, you researched theories of evolution, theistic evolution, intelligent design and creationism. You had successful debates in which you were required to defend these various theories. Now, that you are in the second round of debates, I would like you to comment on the proceedings so far. Are the debates turning out as you expected? Do you notice any patterns? Why? Even if you don't subscribe to the theory that you researched, what did you learn about it? Can you formulate an opinion of evolution now that you have studied it? Create a post in which you articulate your stance on the origin of life.
