Cyberpilot, again, you say Darwin did, but you don't prove it. I can say Jesus wrote down that he was a monkey on acid and that evolution was
correct. Just cause I say it doesn't mean anything. One has to prove what they say. You add nothing to this discussion.
And for the guy saying creation is not just bible related, true. Raelians believe it was aliens, not god, that created us and they don't use the
bible. But christians say the Raelians are nutjobs and are full of bs even though they believe the exact same thing, humans were created by a higher
being. But it should not be taught in school for it is a religous debate/alien debate. If we teach creation we need to teach about Roswell and the
Stranger in the Whitehouse(some may know what I mean, it a great book) for those are the sources. Evolution has scientific sources, creation does
not. Some schools are offering secondary courses that do teach about creation, the flood, jesus, so forth. But those are secondary classes you can
sign up for if you want. Science class is for science, scientific theory, and for exp. with acids and bases and dry ice and so forth. it is not for
religon veiws or alien veiws. And when you say intellegant design, the leader, Dwayne, and the leader of the church movement in Cobbs County say it
themselves, it is a way to make creation sound scientific. They don't say it is, but say it is a way to make it sound scientific. They just replace
"god" with "higher being". Sorry, I don't want kids through teens being taught that the world is 6,000 years old, the flood did happen and
explains the Grand Canyon, dinosaur fossils were put there by satan, and that creation, sorry, intellegant design is how we got here.
Kids should be taught science in science class. If they are in a school that has the secondary class that teaches about creation and things like that
and they want to take it, let them. They should not have to sit through christian religon if they are atheist, Hindu, Buddist, Wiccan, Raelian,
whatever they are if they don't want to.
And as I said, for the people who say "well, if you teach evolution, why not teach intellegant design? Give the kids two different sides?" Well,
then I want a teacher to teach about the holocaust and a teacher to teach them that the holocaust never happened. A teacher to teach about the civil
war and a teacher to teach that slavery was a good thing. I want a teacher to teach that 2+2=4 and a teacher that teaches 2+2=It doesn't matter for
the end of the world is coming and you don't need to know what 2+2=.
Now if the christians decided to stop trying to disprove evolution and try to prove intellegant design through science and exp. then yes it would be
allowed in the class room. But teaching that intellegant design is correct cause they proved evolution is wrong is not science! That is, as stated,
a guy being beaten by a bible. Of course, maybe evolution is wrong, but at the same time creation is wrong also and it is a whole other scientific
theory! That is why scientists study and do tests, to see if they are correct or not.
