And people can take that "faith" outside of the classroom. Science class is for scientific teachings alone.

If people want to teach creationism or ID, they can freely go to the church of their choice on Sunday or whatever day they want. I'm sure the pastor(s) would be happy to see you on a day besides Sunday. And if standard church services aren't enough, join a church-run Bible class. They don't have one? Well, then volunteer to create one.

No one, yet.

Think of the things that we theorize about our universe, yet have not developed an empirical test. They still make it into the classroom.

Such as what? I mean the big bang has the cosmic background microwave radiation, quantum mechanics has the wave particle duality experiments.

Scientific experiments work plenty of the time.

I think the only thing that has had 100% failure has been Biblically-based numerology.
