Faith, Science and Astronomy Textbooks — 2 Comments

  1. Professor Graney — Call me easily placated, but I was actually somewhat relieved that most of the texts reviewed at least attempted to provide some nuance to the Galileo narrative. Certainly an improvement over the “martyr for science” trope so frequently dispensed over popular media. Obviously much work remains, but your efforts provide a good start. Thanks.

  2. Good! Glad to hear it. As for myself I still think they need more on Kepler, at least if they are going to throw in bits of history with any religion content. It would help with those many students who are afraid that science is all about being non-theistic.
