    That only proves that assuming that a system which is not linear would act linear is wrong.

    curriculum choice is not up to the individual. It's the state's problem...

    They don't use carbon dating for 65 million year old fossils and there's no reason we can't calculate things just because they aren't linear.

    Do any churches plan to teach evolution in Sunday school as an alternative to creation?

    Re: Which should be taught in school science classes?

    Personally, I like the way it was done when I was in school.


    The biology teacher told us that he was going to teach us the theory of evolution. He said that there were other concepts about how life began, including creationism, and that he was not going to tell us what to believe, but simply that evolution was the accepted scientific theory and we had to learn it as part of the class.

    When pressed to express an opinion about what he believed, he flatly declined to do so.

    That sounds about right to me.

    Try, some sunday schools do. They teach the possibility that Genesis 1 is figurative language. They don't get into specifics, but they bring up the possibility that evolution is true.

    We should teach science in science class. Creationism and "intelligent design" simply do not qualify. When they can be framed using purely scientific terminology and supported purely by objective evidence, then we'll talk. Until then, it's religious wingnuttery masquerading as science very badly.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Scientific facts or theories aren't solely based on belief without evidence.
    Religion has no place in mass schooling.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
