Teaching creationism....still?!?

It's amazing to me that this discussion is still going on. I can't believe we are still in a country where people are trying to get belief taught as "science" or a valid theory in 2004. Can't we as a society all agree, there has to be valid evidence for something before it's taught in our schools?

What I would love to see is every religious group sue to have their creation myths all taught with equal time. Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Wiccans, New Agers and voodoo priests all get to have their religions myths get equal time with Christian creationism and evolution. That part of the curriculum could then take a month to get through. Fun!

evolution is a theory or shall we say a belief also. evolutionists who are honest admit that it is a science with gaping holes that their answer to fill the holes is "well this is our best guess." the scientific method is not applied to the theory of evolution because if it were it could not stand as a legitimate science.

You seem to have missed my point, which is that while evolution may not be certainty, and hard to prove conclusively since it takes millions of years to happen, it is still the most viable theory, and IS backed up by evidence. Creationism on the other hand, is simply a belief, with no evidence to back it up. I'm not knocking the belief, although I don't subscribe to it, but I am against having taxpayer dollars help fund teaching a belief to children.

As a mother and an atheist --- I would have real issues if they were force feeding my boys religion. That is up to each parent to teach (or not teach) their own children. That is what church is for. NOT our schools!
