Here is another perspective on the issue.
Scientists abide by a strict set of principles that ensures their work is both innovative and sound — most of the time. On rare occasions, the pressure to publish, win grants and earn tenure tempts some to stray from the hallowed pledge that maintains our faith in their results: commit no fraud. And when they do, our censure is swift and merciless.This is what my colleague, Fuz Rana, calls the "self-correcting" nature of science. It's important to teach children how to be discerning about science, but at the same time we don't want to teach them to be so entirely distrustful of the scientific establishment either. Overarching mistrust and conspiratorial beliefs will cause Christians to miss out on the best evidences for the accuracy of the Bible. And engender skepticism in Christian young people.
Do frauds happen? Sure. But they're the rare exception. And judgment within the scientific community is often harsh when it's uncovered. And entire careers can be built on proving someone else's work is false. Conspiracies only stay secret for so long. Eventually, the truth has a way of coming out.
