A good list

Over at Dealing with Creationism in Astronomy, Tom has a list that I think is an important reminder.

While Creationists love the "Teach the Conroversy" mantra, they conveniently forget how real controversies work in science; They're argued by scientists. They're not shoehorned into high school science classrooms.

In his new post, Tom provides a short list of legitimate controversies that would eventually be solved (as well as at least one that hasn't) without having to invoke supernatural magic.

The list also emphasizes just how important the actual experimentation part of science is. This is another part that Creationists often leave out.
