Each discussion board will begin with a question. To get credit for the week, 1) respond to the question; and 2) comment on at least one other student’s response, 3) answer any questions I might have for you. Discussion boards, like quizzes, close on Thursday at midnight. Need help figuring out discussion boards? The Canvas Student Guide (Links to an external site.) has a page that can help. Question Each year in the United States, hundreds of Christian churches celebrate Charles Darwin’s birthday. They do this to emphasize the fact that natural selection is compatible with their faith. And it has been the position of the Catholic Church since 1950 that evolution is real, and that the theory of natural selection appears to be valid. So, given that natural selection does not say that there is no god, and does not say that god didn’t create humans, why are the concepts of evolution and natural selection still problematic for some? Note: be sure you have studied both the chapter and the notes and the orientation videos before answering. A rubric will be used to grade you on this discussion. Instructions: “How do I view the rubric for my graded discussion?” Discussion Directions: Your posts for the week must be at least 24 hours apart, so start posting early in the week. As a guideline, your first post should be about 100-150 words, and your second post should be about 30-50. It’s OK if you go over. Be sure that your posts are in complete sentences, and are proofread before you submit. A successful post will demonstrate an understanding of the material in the chapter and in the notes, use examples, be thoughtful, and be well-written. Responses to other students should not be brief statements of agreement or praise. No cursing, be polite, and don’t use all caps. If you post your response by Tuesday night, I will read and respond and let you know if it needs any work. If it does, you can still revise by Thursday for full points. Summary: respond to the question wait at least 24 hours, then comment on at least one other student’s response answer any questions I might have for you. Discussion boards, like quizzes, close on Thursday at midnight.
