    Default Would you support a law to TEACH Creationism in SCIENCE classrooms?

    ...because that's what has just pretty much happened in Tennessee.

    I don't try to understand them, nor do I worry it will happen here.

    What?? No, no, no. I'm angry enough that they teach creationism as though its fact in state primary schools religious education classes. I'd be livid if they tried to pass it off as a scientific fact (or even as a scientific theory).

    No, I wouldn't support that in a public school. But I do support the rights of a private Chrsitian school to teach creation in Science.

    In many christian schools, Creation is taught as fact in Science, and the Education Department has tried a few times to take away the right of Christian schools to teach Creation in science. I am personally glad that it is still allowed.

    Hell no.

    Then again, living in a Southern US state sounds like travelling back in time, only with bad accents. I'd rather not.

    Regina, out of curiosity - do you know if they teach it as fact along side of evolution or inplace of?

    In my school personally, I used to teach creation as a part of science to 5 year olds, only for a period of 7 weeks out of the year, but I didn't teach evolution. I think it was around grade 6 that evolution began to be taught alongside creation, and the children explored both the theory of creation, the theory of evolution, what the bible says, what a range of scientists believe, how to explore these ideas to understand what we personally believe, etc. This was done at around grade 6 ish because the school felt that this was an appropriate age to really be able to explore and understand the different theories.

    At our school they learn about creation, but right from Prep they learn about dinosaurs, evolution, space exploration, discuss the possibility of a planet like ours suitable for sustaining life, talk about evolution in terms of other planets and how evolution may have occurred in similar, yet vastly different planets to our own.

    Christians are not all backwards idiots
