In regards to the petition linked to by the original poster: I am NOT against any form of religion or teaching creationism or any other religios beliefs on how the world began. However, IMO
, religious teachings belong in a theology/philosphy class, NOT a science class. Would you teach theories on physics in your bible study class? It just doesn't belong there. As this thread clearly points out, the two subjects are at odds in their very deffinitions. Teach science in the science class. Teach theology in a theology class. IMO
, a public school system with an exposure to world religions (no single religion given any more ground than another) would do well to help us understand each other. But that cannot be tought in a science classroom; It is not science.
Once again, I ask you do NOT sign the petition.
