Creationist Discourse in Education (On the Examples of U.S. and the Republic of Georgia)

Givi Amaglobeli

Abstract: Based on the comparative analysis of American and Georgian cases, the given article examines contradictory interrelation between a scientific principle of education (theory of evolution) and a pseudo-scientific teaching (Creationism). It has become an important subject in recent years (of course, not only in U.S. and the Republic of Georgia, but globally, one may argue), as certain religious groups are trying to reconsider/deconstruct/cancel the scientific method of teaching in schooling systems of many developed/developing countries and replace it with pseudo-scientific (or, anti-scientific) teaching. The issue will be examined within the discourse analysis framework as a conflict between two discourses, in the context of the power struggle. Within the scope of this article we will try to review and compare both variations of the case, examine its reasons of occurrence and perspectives of future developments.
