Because "Creationism" is the norm.
Is it? I doubt it.
The norm is believing in both evolution and in God at the same time.

I have to agree that regulation isnt really needed. America was founded on the principals of being able to believe whatever you want. Jesus, Dinosaurs, Rainbow Brite, Aliens, Bigfoot, 2012....
Of course it's also fair to be able to voice your opinion about a subject if you think it is outright insane.
Sanity dictates that you question those beliefs in order to ascertain a logical point of view

I really enjoyed your post this morning.
I needed a good laugh after the week-end
I have had!
Should I be worried about men in white coats
chasing me with a butterfly net?
Or,should I be worried that someone will act
out a "final solution" for the religious crowd?edit on 6-12-2010 by mamabeth because: added more to post

Just finished watching the videos in the OP, it took me a while, but I managed to grit my teeth and watch the one about the creationists in the museum. It's brainwashing to the highest degree. In science classes, no one forces you to believe evolution, they lay the facts out if you want to believe it you can, if not then whatever. With religion they hold their view high up on a pedestal and ridicule and distort evolution so that the kids think that evolution is false.
Here is the question...should "creationism" be consided a sign of insanity? Willful ignorance?

Perhaps neither "Creationism" nor "Evolution" should be taught as "factual" at schools. Why can't we Humans just admit that we do not know the answers to these types of questions? Make available all the data we have and let the young minds reading them come to a decision on their own. It is very narrow-minded to force such fundamental beliefs on developing minds. Flood youth with narrow-minded ideals and chances are most will grow up with narrow-minded belief systems...

here is a shining example of home schooled familys:
That soft voice speaking to you when you see a newborn baby, or witness something spectacular, unexplainable. That is God. And some people have hardened their hearts to His voice.
The problem with this whole argument comes down to the holy grail of PROOF.
