I think you can get some Darwinists to admit this point. If the goal with
respect to the public schools was true neutrality with respect to all
metaphysical conclusions you might get a consensus. Change your wedge and
split the Gouldians from the Saganites. Right now the current strategy gets
the two camps to ally with each other against a common anti-Darwinist enemy.
Most of the current educational proposals, however, have a much more
Gouldian flavor and the Gouldians are asking for religious allies. Even if
we cannot stomach such an alliance at the very least we should encourage
that from the outside.
