Teach ID in a theology classroom and evolutionary biology in the science classroom.

Teach science in a science class and theology in a theology class.

It's pretty simple.

"Teach ID in a theology classroom and evolutionary biology in the science classroom."


Are you saying science can prove evolution without a doubt?

A done, sealed, in the science fact?


The eye of an eagle watches for something called faith.

ID in either a theology or philosophy class. It doesn't belong anywhere else, sorry.

Evolution is a scientific fact and it is also a scientific theory.

"Evolution is a scientific fact.."


Please post the facts on the origin of matter and life.


My view is that whatever we believe on this topic is a matter of faith.


I believe God created all, but I have zero science, just faith.

...and a few reasons that make me think this way

But is that enough to teach in school?

. Or, go to church, too. My dad knew a pastor back in Iowa who said, "I don't teach math in church, so why should religion be taught in school?"

This is not a question about the origin of life (a field in which much study is being done), it is a question of evolution. We have mountains of evidence for evolution from both our knowlege of paleontology right through to genetics. New species arise as conditions change, complex mechanisms on all levels driving natural selection, information being passed down through genes ~ altered through mutation and sexual reproduction.

You would be hard pressed to argue a case that life on earth is static and it would be impossible to use the scientific method to deduce that God created it because a deity is unfalsifiable and thus unscientific. Science is all about the scientific method to explain the facts. Evolutionary biology fufils this very well, intelligent design (by nature of having an unknown and probably undefineable creator) does not.

Science has something called "inherent uncertainty"; that is, when the original Theory of Gravity was disproven, it was then rewritten to reflect contemporary knowledge.

The illogic of creationism and ID is that it considers itself an "alternative theory," as long as the current Theory of Evolution is "disproven." No, if the current Theory of Evolution is found to be wrong in part, it will be rewritten into a different Theory of Evolution. What we know for sure is this:

Creationism and ID have no scientific basis. They are religious tenets that belong in a religion class.
