    Both left and right seem to have their lunatic fringes...
    I am thinking that a moderate leftist ( close to what I am ) does NOT know what a mandate to evolve even means...
    Extremism is the problem...should not, be, as I think its a 1% thingie..

    creationists pretend that their mumbo jumbo theory, which runs contrary to evidence, is at least an equivalent theory.

    some even claim that the devil put dinosaur bones around the place in order to fool us ... or maybe it was God ... to test our faith
    Yet some don't have a problem with actually bringing students on a field trip to a mosque? Weird.

    The "light" MUST BE on the truth; NOT any so-called "gay" agenda.
    Or, lets not treat a mole-hill as a mountain.

As someone else stated, religion has huge societal implications and certain aspects of certainly worth mentioning and talking about from a strictly neutral and educational standpoint, as I've stated REPEATEDLY throughout this thread.
    What you have done repeatedly is muddle the issue through your inability to understand context. Evolution is taught in a SCIENCE class. When you indicate your support for superstition to be taught to "cover all the bases" and to be performed in a "neutral" fashion, you are most certainly supporting classroom conversations that segue into the realm of voodoo when it is scence being taught. Your insistance that this needs to be done in a "neutral" fashion indicates that such voodoo should be placed on equal footing with the actual science.

    I realize you have a sixth grade understanding of evolution as indicated, but some of us who do have scientific backgrounds that extend well beyond the sixth grade level realise the importance of context and do not wish to have real science compromised by mumbo jumbo.

    I wasn't involved in that. I was speaking to our conversation.

    Hmmmm, seems to me my recollection of the Creation account in Genesis written 1440 BCE is quite similar to that of Darwin. Quite amazing actually it agrees more with it than not. So if one is a myth then wouldn't that make the other also? Let's cut through the crap. The true difference in the two is one claims a Supreme being as the architect of all life and others think everything happened by chance.

    Again, I never said it should be taught in science class.

    Okay, then answer my question as to why you don't have a problem with actually taking children to a mosque and praying to Allah, but you DO have a problem with even mentioning the creationist theory. Sounds like bigotry against the Christian religion to me.

    In religion class I have no problem with either. I science class I would.
