Can the clips in the museum where adults are forcefully imposing their (erroneous) opinions on kids be construed as in any way healthy?

Your artificial boundary of christians on one side and atheists on the other is just that. Many Christians accept the big bang theory and evolutionary processes as the creation.
Science and the scientific method is fact based and taught in public schools without benefit of religious interpretation. Biblical interpretations are purely religious and should be taught in church or religious schools. This anti-evolution teaching is a common practice in the Islamic madrassas.
There should be no religion in public schools.

This is another example of teaching from a Corrupted Bible. There are two gods written in the Bible. One god is all loving while the other is vengeful, envious, jealous, and full of hate. That could ONLY be Satan. Satan will ask you to murder other human beings and revel in it.

true, i was generalizing, i realize that. But i would imagine you woiuld be hard pressed to find a believer of the 6000 year old theory that isn't a christian, and from experience, more than 50 % of believers in evolution are not Christian,
by understanding that its not 100% the word of god but is the word of man inspired by god, and as they didnt understand science like we do god made it simple for them
I mean, how do you believe in a theory that flies directly in the face of your religion?
no there are quite a few and we found them so they are not missing, infact we have so many possible missing links were struggaling to work out which is which as homonid evolution was more branched then first thought
It's easy if you welcome ignorance and can fool yourself into thinking that it is somehow just a minor thing, but get real. there is no missing link that was ever found,
ones proven and ones in the bible, hell even Behe the only credable(well kinda) person at the discovery institute accepts common decent he just thinks god poked proded and did it that way over millions of years not evolution
so actually the theory of us coming from apes is just as unlikely i believe as the 6000 year old theory.
i don't believe either one is totally correct, but i believe they shoul be taught because my child should know what he is working with when dealing with people.
Originally posted by Enigma Publius...a compromise is called for. Make a whole seperate subject that introduces kids and young adults to all the theories available on this, or don't teach any of them at all.
BTW: i believe in evolution mostly. I don't for a second believe that the earth was made in 7 days 6000 years ago, but i also believe that i did not come from a monkey...so go figure.
