    I don't want to derail this thread into a creation vs. evolution debate. However, I will share some links in regards to your question.

    No it is not. It is not based on observation, and it is not falsifiable.

    Several thousand or several tens of thousands?

    The biggest being the fact that evolution is treated as true when there is no way to prove that X evolved into Y via Z mutations. The links I posted will explain things better as PhD.s were the ones who wrote them. Again, I don't want to derail the thread into an evolution vs creation debate. I merely stated my belief that in schools both theories should be taught.

There is proof supporting creationism/ID and serious flaws in evolution that go untaught. I think all scientific theories should be discussed in regards to how life formed.
    How exactly would you teach all the different theories, including those that I proposed? There is only so much time in each science class and there are mathematically an infinite amount of theories in the different science areas. So do we include the Infinite World Theory in science class? What about Pastafarianism? Aliens? Alien clones as the first humans?

    Also, I don't know what you were taught in science class about evolution, but I never heard one of my science teachers flat out state that there wasn't a God or that evolution said that everything was random. In fact, I do remember my science teachers talking about Natural Selection in a way that it could easily have fit in with an ID theory without actually stating as such.

    And you will have to give more specifics than just that you have some proof or even a way to prove that God or any higher power created life. Also, you need to provide the specifics for where exactly evolution is wrong and how it affects the results of the theory as a whole.

    What proof exactly do you have? And you need solid proof, not just the Bible or other biblical texts. For instance, if someone found a frozen man and/or woman, that might actually be considered proof that they are Adam and Eve and Creationism is probable. There might be other ways to prove God created life, but you would have to provide specifics for how without relying on anecdotal evidence and that it is possible.

    Well, considering that educators are faced with time crunches, if you are to teach one aspect, let it be Evolution.

    There's no reason why all theories cannot be explained and let the kids think for themselves. Isn't that what we're supposed to do?

    As I said. Cut down the time talking about evolution and introduce creationism according to religions and intelligent design. We don't need to go so in depth into evolution, and it shouldn't be the only theory presented (as that falsely implies that it is the only true proven theory).
