Not to be saying that other religions dont have the same flaws but we have more physical proof that earth was created like that then by god. We have the bible. and we have teachings that are old.. not to offend anyone but.. only two hundred years ago the thought of a television would have been a " Holy " thing.. Why exactly are we trusting the past when we, respectivly know a little bit more about the way things are now then we did then. Religion to me is a comforting thought when i am sad. I can understand how rudy comes to this though, seems he was brought up by this thinking, which is perfectly okay.

No, but creationism isn't even called creationary theory....except by creationists.

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.
I can agree with this totally. There are just some things that are little minds will never know. Our problem is that we try to figure everything out. I know what I believe. I will teach it, preach it, live it, walk it, talk it. I will not excuse it.

You have your belief,s fine with me. I have had others come to my home and try to convince me of there belief. I thank them for caring for me enough to come and tell me even though I have my own belief. Don't fault someone for believing that they are trying to help you. As a matter of fact you should feel good that they care enough.

As far as evolution and creationism.....I say if your gonna teach the theory of evolution, then teach the throry of creationism.

And for the record I do believe in the big bang theory.......................I believe that God spoke it, and BANG there it was!

One other problem is that for some reasons, many Christian take many parts of the bible word for word...literally....yet, bibically, there are numerous occasions on which god/Jesus use allegory, simile and parable...and nobody knows just how much subtle inference may have been lost in translation into English. Same thing with evolutionary studies...we learn new things every day that cause us to adjust our findings and beliefs.

I will be one of those who has to teach evolution.
I personally have no problem doing so, but I refuse to call it "fact" because there are just as many holes in evolution as there are God creating the earth in 7 days.
Evolution, as a verb/action, has been proven (we don't have appendixes etc) but who knows what happened millions of years ago. I think its nice to give kids another possibility, and if they want to learn/find their religion they should do so at church.

However, I get annoyed by people who want to take "in god we trust" and "one nation under god" out of things. It's so pety to me. Who cares?! Its history! its money!

Anyways, we shouldn't teach it as fact... but offer that form of explanation to students
