    Seems here in Aus they are trying to squish the two together to make it work?
    and as far as I know 'most' in the field agree going on the evidence the earth is 'about' 4.5 - 4.6 Billion years old...give or take a year.
    We have the CD in the car atm. They Might Be Giants do amazing kids music. That clip is from "Here comes science". And now I'll stop derailing!

    No way! "Creationism" is not science. "Creationism" has no place in a school. In fact, I think religion in general has no place in a School, other than cultural studies.

    ...and from that website this was linked>

    No wonder some people think evolution isn't 'real'.


    last post from me on this subject for a while - - - because now my head hurts.

    I wll note that if you visit a scientifc website discussing evolution - that is all it does.- presents the facts..It does not 'bag out the competition' ..like all of the websites I have been linked to in the past or have found by searching science/bible.

    No way!! That's insane.

    I even get cranky at Christian instruction here in NZ schools, I would FAR rather the children were taught comparative religion.

    I just don't get why Christians are given such preference for this, why aren't Muslim faiths taught, and Buddhist, and and and....? Wierd.

    No, no, and no again. That would be 'changing schools' time.

    Yes I would alongside everything else. Part of scientific stuff that is taught in schools has been disproven such as carbon dating yet they still teach that. I believe in creationism and think it should be taught alongside evolution.

    Eek! No. Not as science.

    I'm happy for bible stories to be taught very specifically as religious study. And science to be taught as "this is the most current information we have"

    But I remember when I was about 6-7 asking my dad if we evolved from monkeys (as was my understanding) how did god create Adam and eve as well?!? And I clearly remember my dad laughing and saying "that is the question" and I remember me having NO idea what was so funny.

    I don't think it takes kids long to go "hey wait a minute?!?"
