I recently wrote a rebuttal to an editorial in my local paper by someone who was being quite sour toward the "Praise Darwin" billboard put up in Dover, PA. It got published and I was discussing it with a co-worker with whom I have lots of great discussions.

We were talking about science vs supernatural (sort of) and we're both of the same mind that religion and supernatural stuff shouldn't be taught in science class, but is fine in an appropriate class.

So the conclusion was that "Science" needs to police itself in the classroom and not overstep its bounds into the supernatural or metaphysical.

That got us wondering about any examples of such "overstepping." Perhaps teaching that science disproves the existence of a god or somesuch. Again, this is just referring to science instruction in a classroom setting.

Has anyone come across any examples of this?
