    Octupus/Vertebrate Eye, Tasmanian Wolf/Placental Wolf. Kevin Padian testified at Dover as to why these are actually very different. Should the method of discerning between convergence and divergence be given more time in school? (I actually haven't come across it outside my free time)

    Should this go in education?

    Depends on what kind of school we are talking about.

    For most people it is completely pointless information.

    I was thinking that the method should get a very quick mention in high scool, since convergence was an argument used in Pandas, and it might encourage people to get creationism taught. But then again the method used to discover that the earth is round is rarely taught...
