Thanks for the responses. What I wanted to hear are concrete practical benefits that have come out of teaching TOE science. A response from Sorensen would be great.
Apart from giving a understanding of the current standing of biology and medicine, it can be used to explain why you should always finish that course of antibiotics, even if you feel ok. And similarly, why you should not insist on antibiotics for a virus. Can't get more practical than that.

It can give an understanding of how closely related humanity actually is - to talk of races is rubbish.

Physics, chemistry or biology is not of much practical use for the majority of people - I still think it should be taught as that is part of what modern society is built on.

Bugger, I said I would not write any more in this thread...
