    Are you saying that all those things have no weaknesses in their theories?
    As far as I can tell, it's going to allow teachers to explore those and in turn get the students THINKING not just blindly copying a text book or google for answers. Maybe one of those students will discover another accepted theory that he/she could only do because they were't taught that there is no other way. If you're not critical of theories, how do you expect students to have a real acceptance and thirst to explore other areas and possible answers?
    Oj gave a good example of that in her post.

    Pretty sure that has been disproved now. Or near enough any way. They are doing a new test in May because the first test, that seemed to prove that neutrinos moved faster than light, had faulty equipment.

    I found the following paragraphs interesting, from wiki. I can't believe the percentage of adults in the U.S. who believe in creationism (young earth creationism, no less!). I agree that it does not qualify as a science. It's just not science.

    [QUOTE]

    When asked for their views on the origin and development of human beings, between 40% and 50% of adults in the United States say they share the beliefs of young Earth creationism, depending on the poll.

    The percentage of believers decreases as the level of education increases—only 22% of respondents with postgraduate degrees believed compared with 47% of those with a high school education or less.

    The overwhelming consensus of the scientific community is that Creation Science is a religious, not a scientific view, and that Creation science does not qualify as science because it lacks empirical support, supplies no tentative hypotheses, and resolves to describe natural history in terms of scientifically untestable supernatural causes.

    Creation science has been characterized as a pseudo-scientific attempt to map the Bible into scientific facts. [QUOTE]

    Science is trying to find answers and evidence as to how we came to be here, creationalism is a belief with no evidence or proof, I don't see how the two could be taught in the same class.????

    I think it should all be taught. I want my kids to have the privilege of access to lots of info, and to be encouraged to make up their own mind. I don't believe any of it should be taught exclusively as 'fact', as PP said, it's all theory.

    I've been looking further into this and oh, the drama! Apparently the head physicist on this project resigned before he was voted out by the team. Major science nerd drama

    Me too, some want only Atheist views to be taught with nothing else at all, but I want my chid to learn as uch as possible. How that can lower IQ is beyond me
