Creationism as much merit in public school as the study of any other mythology.
Evolution is scienctific theory. That`s not the same as hypothesis, which is what most ill-informed people assume is meant by the "theory" of evolution. Science is a methodology for finding answers and expanding knowledge. It is not a refuttal of creationism or religion because those things cannot be scientifically refutted one way or the other.
Faith and science can exist in the same world at the same time...but teaching faith in school violates the principle of a wall between church and state.

They weren`t as dumb-sounding as I expected.
If they had been, my comment would have read, "This is why women don`t need rights or degrees in life, they CAN get by on good looks and no smarts. The men who aren`t gay will take care of them (to the extent they deserve) and the ugly ones will die out. We all win."

Given your initial statement, I`m not convinced by your new version. You support teaching one specific religion`s creation story in schools as being as valid as science. Maybe you wouldn`t put it in science classes, but that`s not going to make much difference.

As for your posts repeating - IAB`s commenting software is full of bugs.

I hope you don`t think that I support creationism being taught in the science class, because I don`t. But I do think creationism should be made aware of. There`a making aware of and there`s enforcing. I support the former.

Why only those two? If you`re going to teach children that every viewpoint is equally valid regardless of evidence, why not make Jedi studies compulsory too? Or Harry Potter`s magic studies? How about the creation stories that Tolkien created for his books? At least they`re internally consistent, unlike the Christian ones.

And which religions? There are so many that you can`t possibly fit them all into school years.

Why doesn`t it work both ways? So, for example, why shouldn`t churches be forced to give equal time to promoting the idea that Christianity is utterly wrong on a completely fundamental level?

Science and religion are not comparable. Science is the study of fact and observable data to understand the world around us.
Religion is what invisible men you think tell people to do things.

How `bout you also teach *my* belief? That humanity came to exist because the All Mighty Flying Spaghetti Monster created a beer volcano, and when He woke up with a hangover he realized he had created a midget in His drunken stupor. He also loves to test our faith, and in the Gospel you learn that He put the dinosaur bones in the earth. At least *our* book of faith explains the reason why the bones exist. Therefor there is even MORE scientific proof for the Flying Spaghetti Monster "Theory" than for creationism.

Or, how about aliens? There is just as much proof that the driving force of evolution (like intelligent design) was aliens from the planet Xercion 12 in the Omega nebula. By the way, those guys are pricks.

The last liar didn`t answer, so I`ll direct the question right at you, jeanpaul91.

Do you advocate that all children be taught that it is a valid scientific explanation that the sun is pulled around the Earth in a chariot pulled by two goats? That this is equally as valid a piece of science as the explanation that the Earth orbits the sun due to the gravitational force of the sun?

That`s another religious story, by the way.

And yes, I am calling you a liar. You don`t believe your own statement about teaching everybody everything in science classes, as if every idea has equal scientific merit. You`re just trying to destroy science by making it illegal to teach children the basic principles of science - that explanations must match the evidence and that the validity of explanations varies depending on how well they do or don`t match the evidence.

And I`d vote for you to be exiled because of your dishonesty and your underhanded attempts to ruin your country.

Go look for some bloody integrity and stand behind your beliefs. You want to destroy science and education and replace it with mandatory faith? That`s what you`re advocating, so either you want it or you`re an idiot. If you want it, have the integrity to say so. If you`re an idiot, have the wisdom to not talk about issues you`re so incapable of understanding.

You don`t even believe your own statement.

You`re not in favour of teaching doctors that the doctrine of the four humours is equally as valid as modern medicine, are you? Why not? If you believed your own statement, you would be. And you`d die if you got any serious medical problem.

I was expecting that to be cut off around 980 characters, so I`ll finish it off with another post:



The theory of evolution is an explanation of how evolution works. The fact that some parts of it have been changed to make it more accurate overall says nothing about evolution itself.

If someone said that gravity didn`t exist *and was trying to force schools to teach children that belief in the non-existence of gravity was science*, I`d be objecting the same way for the same reasons.

I know a great deal more about how evolution works than I know about how gravity works.

I very much doubt if you know how gravity works. Does that mean you doubt the existence of gravity and think people who accept the existence of gravity are acting purely on faith?

Evolution is as real and as obvious as gravity. It is a thing that happens, simple as that.

"Language changes" does not serve as an argument to rebut his position nor discount his outrage - at least until "drating" ends up in the f*cking dictionary.

EgalM - Evolution, at least the amount of it that should be taught in highschool biology, doesn`t really require much study to understand and to be able to see it in the outside world. It`s really, REALLY simple. Darwin was amazed at how simple it was, and yet how beautifully it worked (just started reading Charles Darwin`s "On Natural Selection). If you live and can breed, you pass on your genes. If you can`t, you don`t. If one of those genes helps your future offspring survive, it`ll get passed on in greater numbers, changing the population over generations. Done. That`s evolution. And it`s easy to see in a day to day world. It doesn`t need to be taken on pure belief, unlike most of the math you learn at higher levels until you can understand the proofs. It can be understood immediately.
To say they`re taking it without questioning it is wrong. It`s just so simple they don`t really need to do too much research into the little tidbits of genetic drift and such.

I think evolution should be treated like a science and examined as such. They need to update the out-dated material that has been proven false.

What it is treated like by most people is a religion. As in, they don`t question it, they argue to no end in defense of it without understanding it. They take it purly on faith that they are being told the truth.

This does not apply to rare few people who actually took time to study it and think about it on their own. Not just taking someone else`s word on it.

If we let kids choose for themselves what they believed about the world, they would decide the earth is flat, the sun revolves around the Earth, and the moon is made of cheese. Because that`s what it looks like!

Honestly, kids are not smart enough to make decisions like that. We have to tell them what`s correct, and what`s correct is the theory of evolution.

"Choose for themselves". That`s garbage. Kids are too retarded to choose for themselves.

Ok, I wasn`t sure in which way you were using the term theory. You are clearly as educated as you let on. So, to be fair, we must somehow force creation advocates to specify in which way they mean "theory," as it is this very ambiguity you and I just experienced which allows them to get away with confusing the term so ruthlessly.

Ah, for the theory thing, I was talking about the fact that the theory of evolution involves the actual relationships, not just the process. the process is already observed on a micro scale about a billion times over.

Serpentchick - I`ll do you one better. The reason it will always remain a THEORY is because as a THEORY, it acts as a MODEL for how the process works! No time machine nor amount of time-lapse photography is needed to validate anything.

To all those "teach the controversy" people: there IS no controversy in the biological field that evolution is correct. None. The only thing they`re still figuring out is what evolved from what exactly, direct relationships etc. And the reason it will always be theory is we don`t have a time machine and a camera that can take video of millions of years. yet. EVERY shred of evidence points to evolution, not intelligent design. This, scientifically, is not a "choice of belief" so much as a "choice of ignorance". Every year we puzzle out more and more to how life on earth started and eventually made us and all life around us. Even things like basic morality FIT IN with evolution, there doesn`t need to be a designer to put it there, nor our "complex" (badly designed) eyes, or our teeth that SUCK for long lifespans and just aren`t so great in general.

It can, since anyone can interpret it to mean anything.

But that`s irrelevant to this subject.

You are trying to abuse science in order to give false *scientific* credibility to your creation story and only your creation story.

You are trying to destroy science by doing so, since it would destroy the very basis of science - a rational explanation of observed reality in accordance with the available evidence.

You are using this parasitical deceit to try to enforce your religion on everyone by forcing it into schools to be taught as objective reality.

All that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that a Christian can if they wish interpret their bible to fit with reality.

I have a little more respect for people who honestly oppose education and call for a theocracy, because at least they have the integrity to stand behind their beliefs. I hold them in contempt and I don`t want them to exist, but I have more respect for them than I do for people like you because they are at least honest. They oppose directly rather than through deceit and corruption.

Choosing just one or the other limits people too much and you know it isn`t impossible to believe in both. The Bible can easily go hand-in-hand with evolution.

I have a challenge for all of the "teach them both" scumbags.

You think that science and reason and evidence are all worthless and that anything called a theory is just a vague guess that`s probably wrong.

That`s because you are ignorant liars, but that`s not my point here.

My point is that if you really believe yourself, you will have no objection to injecting yourself with a fatal disease-causing pathogen. After all, the idea that some bacteria and viruses cause disease is JUST A THEORY (it`s the germ theory of disease).

You don`t believe yourself, do you?

You`re liars and you know it.

Am I ranting enough to be getting through? You`re bottom-feeding lowlives who want to destroy science and reason and plunge us into tyranny and misery and you`re not even honest enough to stand up for your own beliefs.

Why aren`t you arguing that medical schools give the same weight to the idea of the four humours as they do to modern medicine?

Why aren`t you arguing that schools give the same weight to the idea that the sun is carried around the earth by two goats pulling a chariot with the sun on it?

Why aren`t you arguing that schools give the same weight to luminiferous aether as they do to photons?

Christianity can be taught - in churches or by parents, and if the parents so wish they can pay to send their children to private schools. HOWEVER, you may NOT take public funding and teach it in public schools. Teaching Intelligent Design aka Creationsim in Public schools is just as illegal as teaching Islam, Pagan beliefs, Buddhism, Satanism, and all other religions. Public schools are NOT a place of religion in the USA, and just as you would not like me pushing my pagan beliefs onto your children, you are not allowed to push christian beliefs onto my future children. Especially when the scientific proof of I.D. is non-existant. Get some ACTUAL biologists (not one chemistry dude) and REAL facts to back you guys up, and then we`ll talk about teaching it as a science.

This...hurt so much. So much. I majored in biology, and learned that without the THEORY of evolution, things like medicine and biology as a whole would make so little sense. Evolution unites all the pieces of biology, from genes to neurons to neurological diseases. From penicillin to antibiotic resistant bacteria to superbugs. Not to mention genetic engineering for everything from corn to dogs (you like corgis? Thank evolution with man made selection)
It explains things like smallpox, and how we can vaccinate against it by using cowpox. it explains why the laryngeal nerve, which goes from the brain to the voice box, is several feet in giraffe (look it up but vaguely gross dissection).

Evolution is a REALLY simple concept, with some amazing results. Those that survive and breed do, those that don`t...don`t. Pretty easy.

No, to answer your badly misspelled question, this is not a "sanpshot" of American "intellegence". These are airheaded girls competing in a beauty pageant.

Seriously, how can you just take one example and make a blanket statement like that? When someone does it about a minority "gah, look at that hoodlum. All black people are thugs" then they`re despised for it, and rightly so. Why is it so acceptable when the target is Americans?

@SPrinkZ - If you knew anything about the Bible, you`d know that it most certainly was written as a metaphor. Genesis contains two accounts of the creation of earth, back to back, that conflict with one another. One says it happened a certain way, the second says it happened a different way. They can`t BOTH be true, so you have to look further and interpret why the accounts are different.

Probably the best interpretation is that the first creation story shows God as an almighty ruler, all powerful...and the second one shows him as a personal, loving creator. So, the stories are used to emphasize different aspects of God`s supposed nature.

You obviously didn`t read the rest of my comment, I don`t believe in Adam and Eve or the world being washed clean by a great flood, but there is nothing to stop me believing God caused the Big Bang.
There are many scientists that belive in God, Einstein believed in a God, not one that had any influenece in the way humans live but in a creator.

People need to remember that the term theory as in "Theory of Evolution" is not a theory in the normal scene, but a scientific theory.
I cannot remember all the differences but a scientific theory requires elements of proof and fact before it can be called a theory.

I laughed. It was probably selective editing, but all of the bible bashing gals were southern, and all of the pro-evolution ones were northern.

These girls are there to look pretty and garner people`s approval. Their responses are pretty much tailored to whatever is the most acceptable stance in their area.

You must take great pains to compartmentalize evolution and the bigbang which is the opposite of creationism. I don`t know how you do it. But you`re being dishonest to Christianity and to Science. You`re more of a danger than anyone. Because you bridge a gap of stupidity with even more stupidity. These ideas do not exist together. They can`t. Creationism or any of that is not a metaphor. It is a literal account. If you knew anything about the bible you`d know it was not primarily written as a metaphor. It was written as the word of God. If God said that wine sprang from a rock--it did. If God said he wanted the seas to boil--it did. Is there evidence of any of God`s miracles, or his epic genocide [based off of the epic of Gilgamesh]? No.

So where is your God now? Oh wait. He`s imaginary. Just like the belief that evolution can co-exist with an intellectually dishonest idea like creationism.

Also, the big bang and evolution are two separate theories. Just letting ya kn

Want proof look at scientific facts that don`t agree with religon not just Cristian belives pretty much all of them. Religons are a book of lies written by man to keep other men in order and subservient.

"I`m a Christian studying natural sciences at university and I believe in both God and scientific theories such as evolution and the Big Bang. I don`t see why either theory disproves the existance of God.
The Bible was written at a time when it would be impossible for anyone to truely understand these theories, so I believe it uses fables to teach Gods nature in a way people would have understood at the time. Rather than trying to explain the Big Bang to someone who hasn`t heard the word science before."

Dude. You cannot accept the big bang and evolution and be a Christian. It`s literally an incompatible view. A lot of people like to say, "Hey! We can make these two views that are diametrically opposed to each other seem like they are compatible. Just give me a second to jump through some hoops, and cherry-pick my bible a bit and I got it!"

Also, if you had studied the bible you`d know it makes glaring errors about almost all the natural world.

If you ever get scientific theory and `theory` mixed up again. Just try to think of a scientific theory as a fact, and a `theory` as just a hunch or a hypothesis.

Not that bad at all, some people do not believe in evolution so what? Let them be!"

I`d have no problem with this aside from the fact that computers essentially are run on a THEORY. You couldn`t type your misinformed, ignorant statement without quantum mechanics. Is it a theory? Yes. Is evolution a theory on par with quantum mechanics? No. It`s better. It`s more robust. It explains more. It tells more. It predicts MORE. It says a lot more about your ignorance that you can believe you can type and transmit electronic email but you can`t comprehend evolution.

Which is one of the simplest and most elegant theories to have ever graced mankind. The great unifier of biology. It explains nearly everything about biology and why it happens, and the how.

It`s more than just a `theory`. It is nearly the sum of all knowledge of biology. Without evolution there, it would be a dark, dark place for biological sciences.

First of all, Miss Delaware wins this part. Put it perfectly.

Second, "It should be taught as just a theory..." is just like saying, "We should teach kids that the sun will come up tomorrow, but only as a theory." We have sufficient evidence to say that both are true, but we weren`t (aren`t) there to witness it first hand, so it must stay a "theory."

"Both evolution and creation theories should be taught in school."

Evolution is a scientific theory and thus should be taught in schools. Creationism is a religious belief, not a theory and definitely not a scientific theory, so it should be taught only at home or at a church but definitely not at school. We don`t teach the religious belief of geocentricism in schools, nor do we call it a theory, and creationism should be held on the same level. :P

It`s fine to introduce people to beliefs some faiths have about evolution and all (not just christianity), as long as they keep it the hell out of a science classroom.

I am a 100% believer in evolution and completely reject the idea of intelligent design. I still agree with Miss Georgia, teach it all and let people decide for themselves. This jihad against any alternative theories and against religion is doing nobody a favor. Closed minds don`t learn. The clause against the government establishing a religion should apply to atheism too.

It`s interesting that most of the southern contestants don`t believe that Evolution is even a possibility -- it`s ALL GOD AND JESUS! That`s the Bible belt talking right there and it makes me ashamed to say that that`s where I come from.

Even if you do believe in creationism, it`s plain as day that evolution happens whether you believe we were created by a higher power or not. No one is the same as they were 500+ years ago. We`ve grown physically and intellectually. It`s not a theory, it`s plain, straight up fact. Saying evolution shouldn`t be taught in schools is like saying science period shouldn`t be taught in schools because some people don`t believe it`s true. Facepalm, indeed.
