    Children Should Be Taught Both Sides...

    In schools in Australia, and I am guessing it is the same elsewhere, the theory of evolution is taught as fact. There are serious flaws in this theory, yet children are being programmed to believe it without question. People get so mad about the church brainwashing kids, but not...

    The Creation As a Basis For a Complete Education

    Right... time to call the fundamentalist's bluff and agree to their whiny demands. I propose we throw out the entire syllabus and construct one based solely on the Bronze Age goat herder's myth we all know as "The Creation". That's right, not only in religious studies...

    What Came First

    A physician, an engineer, and an attorney were discussing who among them belonged to the oldest of the three professions represented. The physician said, "Remember, on the sixth day God took a rib from Adam and fashioned Eve, making him the first surgeon. Therefore, medicine is...

    I'll not have my bloody taxes go to pay to teach some unscientific theory in a science class!

    Sure, Lets Do That.

    Lets disregard the foundation of teaching itself.  Lets ignore the idea that the only things taught in schools should be facts.  Provable facts.  Lets ignore the idea that from English, math, and science, to Home Economics and even sports, EVERYTHING taught in...

    Creation Of Everything Out Of Nothing

    Synopsis The Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo (to use its Latin expression) states that God created all that existed out of nothing; the Lord did not simply rework material which was already there. This means that God is utterly transcendent, distinct from and sovereign...

    I Understand the Intention, and Agree With It ... But...

    I think it will be a long time before this happens, if ever. As a Buddhist, Im down with it, and the whole teaching of many different cultures, and religions to our children at an early age, I think its a fabulous idea. However, we can barely afford to teach children their...

    Dont Preach In My Schools and I Wont Teach In Your Churches

    It seems like a fair compromise. Creationism is not science.  You cannot even call it a "scientific theory" because it doesnt meet the scientific standards of theory.   Research theories of science.  There is a HUGE misunderstanding among the...

    ID: Not Just Bad Science, It's Bad Theology

    The following is an article that thoroughly demolishes the notion that we should teach "Intelligent Design" in the classroom of our public schools. ID is indefensible as a scientific theory, and Kenneth Miller explains why:   "the hypothesis of design...

    Share Both

    I think intelligent design should be taught right alongside evolution and let the students make up their own minds.   EDIT: There are so many folks interested in my little thread.  I don't know why.  This was not meant to be yet another debate.  There are...

    Sure, In a Class Called "Myths and Legends From Around the World"

    So let's not stop with just Biblical creationism... what about Shinto creationism, and Hindu creationism and CaoDai creationism, and Native American creationism, and aboriginal creationism, and I'm sure there are dozens of wonderfully 'creative' creationist stories from Africa...

    Wrong, Wrong, Wrong.

    How on earth can any of you..."enlightened" people talk about something you clearly have no idea about? There ARE no holes in evolution. If you have any doubts, do the research. There is absolutely no fact to creationism, but there are millions of facts for evolution. If you don...

    Schooling Is Indoctrination, But Who Is Doing the Indoctrinating?

    To give the government the power over the reigns of education, while at the same time preaching the doctrine of separation of church and state is hypocrisy.  Faith or belief is a tenet of the church; policies are tenets of the state; to give the state power over both is to...

    Teach It As Part Of A Comparative Class On Human Origins.

    When I say "all schools" I'm talking high school or college, of course. I think it is an absolutely wonderful idea to have a class that deals with human origins - but I don't think it should be limited to one theory, belief, mythos or creation story. Even within the Judeo...

    Definitions of Science, Fact, Theory

    Please, people on both sides of this argument, understand that this is an argument over what constitutes science, not over what is right or wrong. Science class is where we learn science, and much of science has actually been disproven or revised. If you think back to the "...
