Try reading it sometimes before you make pointless conclusions. It's not all about the world, but some parts just tellings of what happened at the time.

Wow, I'm surprised this turned into a debate on religion.

Creationsism and Intelligent Design are not science. These people already have a conclussion and are looking for ways to verify it. That's the exact opposite of the scientific method. It's reverse forensics.
Go ahead and teach creationsim...but do it in a philosophy class.

Honestly, I would perfectly fine with teaching multiple theories of creation in classrooms.

It takes as much faith to believe in evolution as it does to believe in intelligent design. Most individuals have no idea why they believe evolution; they simply trust that scientists know better than them, and then scoff at the "religious nuts" who are also putting faith into a higher authority.

Also, before simply arguing that believers in ID have no idea what they are talking about, I suggest actually doing a bit of research into the topic.

Read more here:

Lastly, I would like to point out that ID is not the most important controversy in our country. However the world was created, it's here now. I would focus more attention on what happens after you die...that's the thing you can control, and need to seriously consider.

Turiski, theories are usually called theories for a reason.

The theory of relativity IS just a theory. Granted it seems to hold true in a lot of cases, but it's just that...a theory. I've had to study it in atomic physics, and there are some parts that I can't help but think is complete and utter bullpoo.

Also gravity, so far, is unexplainable. We know how it works, but we don't know what it is.

Science and creationism are both fundamentally based on certain things that must be taken for granted. Scientists cannot go any further back than some millionths of a second into the Big Bang, creationists cannot prove that God exists.

However, both sides can point to an amazingly high number of "coincidences" and deduce certain theories to match their experiments and data. *wink wink*

Personally, I am more inclined to believe in science because at least scientists are attempting to understand the nature of the universe (God, or whatever you would like to call it), whereas creationists simply leave it all up to an archaic religion that has done a lot more harm in this world than good.

Classic: be neutral about creationism.
What the f**k does that mean? Brilliant!

How many teachers have been fired for not teaching Evolution in their religion class?

And now for my practical opinion on the video:

"..." wow. That was the worst bit of propaganda I've ever seen. The sad part is it probably works on some people.

*sigh*

Oh, and I forgot the minor detail that in science, theory has a different meaning than in English vernacular which implies a very high degree of certainty. Here are another couple of things that are 'still' only scientific theories

Atomic Theory
Germ Theory
Theory of Relativity
Gravity Theory

So think about that before you pull out the old "Just a Theory, Just a Theory" response.

While at my core I am a Christian, I'll be the first to say that this is beyond stupid. Because if you teach Christian creation stories, than don't you have an obligation to teach Buddhist, Aboriginal, (god help us all) Scientology, and the hundreds of native creation stories?

And if you do all of that in a science class, what WOULDN'T you have time to do? Genius!

But this teacher has some serious mixed up priorities if she wanted job security: there are plenty of schools where you can't get fired to save your life... Massachusetts, maybe?

'This demonstrates the indoctrination of our public schools. Even though two different and equally valid THEORIES exist (get that? Evolution is only a THEORY), only one is shown to be "right."'

Actually, there's more than two theories- you seem to be just counting evolution and the bible's take on the origin of life. Other religions have different creation theories, you know. If you're going to bring religion into class, I don't think its fair to educate about one religion's viewpoint and not the others.

my old friend, when in elementary school, learned evolution in science class and creation in religion class. i think that is how it should stay. the school should hire a religion teacher to teach ID. or maybe just drop evolution from science class? evolution is just a theory amongst many about our origin.

And why is there a scientology chanel advertisement on this site. god i hate them.

"This demonstrates the indoctrination of our public schools. Even though two different and equally valid THEORIES exist (get that? Evolution is only a THEORY), only one is shown to be "right.""

If intelligent design and evolution are equally valid theories then why not inculde the theories of all religions about how we came to exsist? It's not like those are the only two options.

Disregarding that, however, this is very poorly done. Who is going to believe a creepy video with scary music and weird subliminal message cartoons?

Also, the very fact that this woman would act in such an immature fashion, writing sentences on a blackboard and belittling her students' religious beliefs so flippantly should be red flags that this woman is untrustworthy.

She's doing it for publicity, and she seems like a very cruel teacher. As a public school teacher, she should recognize and respect the differing, VALID, opinions of her students.

I did Religious Studies at A Level and part of it was religion and Science. I can't even remember what we did it was that bad. I think that if they have to teach about creationism in science class maybe they should teach evolution is church. It's only fair. religion is for religious studies and science is for science.

Please don't teach children different viewpoints. We can't have them thinking or anything like that.
