I would prefer that we explained what science believes, with the caveat that we are not able to prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt and that there are other groups out that who have alternative ideas as to how the universe was created. I'm not asking any school to teach religion. I'm not even suggesting they should do anything more than acknowledge that there are other theories out there.

In terms of the creation of the earth and the evolution of the human species, forgive me if I place a greater amount of trust in the body of knowledge that sent robots and people into space, and created the artificial heart.
