I think it should be. Teach both. Spend more time on evolution, since it would be taught in science class and evolution is more science-y, but spend a little time (a few hours, days, whatever) going over creationism, and let the kids make up their minds and research what they want to research.

I know. I have such an extreme, far-right, anti-science point of view.

Like I said on the last page, I'm not the typical white-bread evangelical to ask when it comes to these things, but I digress. I personally believe that God created science and all of its processes, including possibly, evolution. When we discover scientific evidence from millions of years ago, we can't shove it away like so many Christians want to. The earth is not 6,000 years ago, and I don't believe it was created in 6 literal days. We know through science that the earth took millions of years to fully form as we know it, and I don't see why anyone who says he or she believes in the God who created everything and everyone, like I do, would have any trouble accepting that. If God exists outside of time, which The Bible says He does, than 6 days could be 6 million years. We forget that Genesis was written thousands of years ago. When we had no means of learning about the earth and its processes and history, how else could we possibly explain it other than a story such as God literally using His hands to put everything together in 6, 24 hour days. I don't believe God or the writer(s) of the Creation story ever intended us to stop digging there. As new information about the earth is found, those of us who are Christians should accept it as more evidence of God's power to be able to create these scientific and natural processes that allow the earth to function as it does. As for Creationism, I don't believe it should EVER be taught in a science class, as most Creationists want. It's not a scientific theory, and students who grow up under it in school will be done a great disservice in their study of actual science. Now, if there's a class offered on Religion or Christianity, I see nothing wrong with telling the story in that instance, since that's what it truly is.

I'm more of an agnostic, but I do believe there is more than likely something out there than isn't.

Creationism should be taught in either religion classes or classes dealing with myth. It has no place in a science or history classroom. Intelligent design - same - and I think it might be "on to" something. But we should be teaching facts - at the very least plausible yet testable theories, not belief systems promoted to sway elections.

"A person should not believe in an "-ism," he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."

Save Ferris!

Now, this is something we can agree on!

I'm an atheist. I don't believe in God. i don't like the idea of religion. however i try not to be dogmatic and militant about my beliefs. people should be free to believe in what they want to believe.
