    Marduc, give me one example of two different species where we have a completed chain of fossils demonstrating the evolutionary process between the two.

    we will never have a "complete" chain because not every critter that lives becomes a fossil, and for every link found there are two new ones missing, I am not going to fall for your predictable and all too common fools errand

    Now I actually believe somewhat in intelligent design, but also recognize that it is a belief without evidence to support it. Of course, my own beliefs on ID probably differ greatly on how most believe in ID. In fact, I probably would describe my beliefs as a hybrid between ID and Natural Selection.

    Now, I am not asking in the poll what you personally believe, but rather what you think should be taught to students. It would be good, however, to include in your response what you personally believe and/or an explanation on what should be taught.

    I think that we should only teach evidence-supported science to students and allow them to decide for themselves if they accept that evidence, completely reject it, or develop their own ideas and theories based on that evidence and/or their own beliefs.
    In science class? Evolution. Period.

    No, you said we have numerous links and chains. Give me an example of a complete chain between two different species. When you find you can't do that, give me an example of a chain that is only 70% complete. When you find you can't even do that, just give me the best you got. You said there are numerous chains, I'm sure you'll find something convincing.

    Well, I am impressed that this was taught in a Sunday School.

    But I still don't want Creationism or ID taught in public schools, not in any science classes.

    That's fine, I don't want the theory of evolution taught in science class. It is not science. I haven't even pulled out the best argument yet.
