One of my photos is going to be used in a booklet about Darwin which is a resource for schools in London. The scheme is called the Twist Partnership and it aims to deal with the very thorny issue of religious belief and scientific knowledge. The teacher I’ve been corresponding with is trying to explain evolution theory with children from fundamentalist religious backgrounds, both Muslim and some creationist Christians. The children could easily go into careers as scientists but have to reconcile what they’ve learnt at home and at temple or church. Darwin himself had to go through a lot of angst about his theories with both his wife and the scientific establishment. I’m very happy to have a tiny input to furthering this sort of discussion and very pleased that one of my photos is considered good enough. And of course, a connection to a Springsteen song! Part Man, Part Monkey.
