    According to science, what he said was true, so yes, in that context he should be allowed to say it.

    Actually, science has nothing to do with creationism, and doesn't really have a position on it. However, creationism is clearly religion, and as such, a government official(which a teacher is) should not b e taking a position on it in their role as a teacher.

    You know, it's probably true to some degree. So what? Reality is what reality is. I'm certainly not butt-hurt by reality, why are the religious?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    There are two sides to the creationist coin - religious and liberal. I simply don't like seeing creationism as a synonym for religious creationism while liberal creationism is ignored. If people are upset about faith-based superstition being injected into the realm of science then let's dismantle the artificial boundaries and bring liberal creationism into the mix alongside its religious creationist counterpart.

    Your whole "liberal creationism" thing is both offtopic, and totally stupid.

    OK. How about this as a race theory: Black people are superior. Evidence: Jazz, Rock and Roll, Rap. Also Peanut Butter, the Air Conditioning unit and spark plugs. All invented by blacks.

    Inventions Created By Black People

    You're right RD, one race is superior, and it ain't us whiteys.

    So tell us what this "liberal creationist" theory is. Especially since we all apparently believe in it, but you're the only one who thinks it exists. Go ahead, tell me what I think.

    Nothing about your race theory has anything to do with creation of anything though, so why bring it up and pretend it does have something to do with a theory about creation?
