In my humble opinion, a resounding no.

Children should only be taught science. Creationism is psuedo science, and as such, it is intellectually stifeling. Children don't need need to be fed unscientific Beliefs.

Why does everyone say Creationism is pseudo-science?  What in the world is pseudo-science?  Creationism should not be taught in the classroom.  Period.

Your absolutely right.

Creationism is only psuedo-science on the assumption that it is even worthy of this description


I stand corrected

no, it should not be taught. in america schools are government run, in america we have seperation of church and state(YAY!), Creationism is pretending to be a scientific theory, when it is actually religon getting stubborn that it doesnt have proof. in america it is imposing religon on children. in truth teaching creationism in public schools is actually illegal.

Religon=Opium of the Masses, except for Buddhism, thats about inner peace.

F.Y.I. to the Catholics/Christians...JESUS SAID LOVE ALL EQUALLY, HE NEVER SAID GAY PEOPLE ARE THE EXCEPTION!!!

IN AMERICA RELIGON IS NOT A GOOD REASON FOR ANY LAW!!! Period.

The idea of marriage was made in a time where being gay would be a good reason to torture you to death.

Before you say it im straight, but believe it or not im also, God forbid, tolerant.

If being gay is a choice then you accept being straight is too.

If God existed and couldn't accept gay people because he doesn't like them (guess where sins come from!) then he's imposing HIS beliefs on YOU!

If you aren't religous you can still be moral.

Where in the Bible does it say being gay is wrong, cuz if it wasnt in the first draft whats the big deal. Yes the Bible HAS been revised.

Race-does not matter
Religon-does not matter
Sex-does not matter
Sexuality-shouldn't have to matter, cuz it's not like whites don't befriend blacks , Christians don't befriend aetheists, and Men dont befriend Women, so...why make being straight or gay matter? Wanna know what does matter? We're alive. Shouldn't that be more than enough?

Teach creationism as science if it has some data to present!  So far it has zero, but who knows!

Maybe someone will find human bones and trilobite shells in the same place.  

Until there is data, no creationism in science class.

You know something similar has already happened Hespero in the laetoli find Mary Leakey discovered I think around 28 modern human footprints dated to be around 3.6 million years old. Then of course their is the Kanopoi find where a fragments from what seems to be a modern human skeleton dated to be about 4 million years old.

First of all, the Kanapoi find was of Australopithecus Anamensis, an early human ancestor which most closely resembles Australopithecus Afarensis, not modern Homo sapians.

The Laetoli find is a similar situation.  The footprints are from hominids, but it is most likely from Australopithecus Afarensis which has been discovered in the area and was alive at the same time that they were made.

I think both subjects should be teached, and kids can pick for themselves.

Everyone says expect the unexpected, but since now everyone expects the unexpected, the unexpected is now the expected and the expected is the unexpected. So if you are expecting the unexpected, you are actually expecting the expected, so if you start expecting the expected, you will be expecting the unexpected. So everyone should start expecting the expected again and the expected will be expected and the unexpected will be unexpected again, then we can start expecting the unexpected again.

JSF, I'll ask again; If creationism should be taught then should it be all religions that have a creationist origin, or just the religion you subscribe to?

I've got no problem with creationism/ID being taught AS LONG AS it is not done so in a science class.

If you're going to teach creationism, then be fair. Teach every  form of creationism.

Really?  MODERN human footprints?  Are you sure about that?

I lived in Thailand for two years and I can tell you that Buddhism is definitely just as religious as any other system of belief. They have heirarchies (a powerful organization of monks), wars, suppression of opposing views, blind belief in reincarnation, political meddling, etc. Sure there are liberal buddhists (esp. in the west) that divorce the religion from these constraints but there are also christians and muslims that do the same. Just my two cents.

I'm sure that Van7maxon is right. And yet, there's something impressive about Buddhism. It has quotes like these-

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if i have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."

Christianity discourages critical thinking. Buddhism seems to, at least in principle, encourage it.
