Over the past fifty years, quite independently of the origins debate, intellectuals and theologians have been challenging colleges and schools to reconsider their approach to natural science education. This talk will explore how reviving the natural history tradition to accompany the natural science tradition and inverting the biology curriculum (putting macro before micro) transforms the current educational approach to the natural world while also, surprisingly, lowering the stakes on the question of origins.
