So what ever happened to independant thought? Why do we need to be told about everything? The debate against faith vs. science is very intreging to me. I will not bore you with my personal beliefs as these are just that..."personal". I just think that people rely too heavily on the schools to teach "moral" issues. IMHO, there is no room in school for morality. That needs to come from the home. The examples we set and lessons we teach at home are gong to be far more lasting then evolution, the big bang theory or religious creation our kids learn in school. Teach them well at home and, hopefully, they will be able to make an informed and educated decision on their own.

Do a search, it's been discussed many times, and I'm not explaining it again.

When I was in school, evolution was taught to me as a theory, not fact. I think its OK to say hey this is ONE idea some people have about how all this came about. But when its taught as the ONLY way, then I start to have a problem. Private school was mentioned several times as an alternate, and my husband and I have discussed it for our daughter, but the fact is , private school costs a lot of money, and we may not be able to afford it. Hopefully when she does go to school, what my husband and I teach her about religion wont go sliding out of her little brain. I hope that she will learn by our example.

well if it is taught in public school they can get in trouble for even talking about evoution because they are contradicting your religion saying that YOUR wrong and that THEY'RE right

personally i beleive in God and that he made everything in 7 days

for the first 7 years of my school life i went to a private school Grace Lutheran School GLS Go Wildcats! w00t

Wrong, they cannot, by federal law, teach creationism. Evolution has been taught for many years and will continue to be taught for many years, the debate here is wheter it is taught as a fact rather than a theory. I think we've pretty much all decided (even those that don't want creationism taught in public schools) that evolution is a theory not a fact.

Funny you should say that. But how do you explain the evolutionary process of humans (homo sapiens)? Not to mention every other creature and being that is living today. Do you think all of a sudden that we just sprung up cause "god" created us? I don't think so. Ignoring the evolutionary process is just not a possibility.

No theory is perfect, but all theories are supported, or they would simply be hypothoses. Archaeological and paleontological evidence give plenty of support and evidence to the evolutionary theory....far, far more so that there is evidence for any other theory, so evolutionary biology is the primarily accepted theory.

And for all the creationists....creationism and evolution are far from mutually exclusive. Within the Christian belief system, the bible is, well, gospel....and that bible states that 'god created the earth and its inhabitants in 6 days'....the same bible also admits that time is irrelevant to god, and that one of his 'years' might be like 1000 of ours....so why not like, oh say...1 billion of ours? God may well have created the earth in an evolutionary fashion over 6 billion years....and the progression of creation as written in the bible is not dissimilar to the documented progression of evolution...think about it.
