    My opinion is that nor Evolution nor Creation should be taught in classroom! because:

    Science has to explain/describe cellular division, chemical reaction, observation...it's not the task of science to explain WHO RUN biological process .

    Evolution and Creation are both metaphysical hypothesis that should spared from teachings.

    Evolution think that CHANCE run the biological process, and life has emerged by accident!!
    Creation think INTELLIGENT FORCE should be behind the existence and complex biological process of species.

    Science has the task to answer why? and how? chemical elements are reacting in cell and organism...it should not ask: WHO do it? because it's metaphisical subject.

    After Graduation, students would get the choice to be evolutionists (think that chance and NS behind biologic process) or creationist (think that an intelligent power run this complex process).

    many countries have cancelled darwinism in schools, because it will indoctrinate children instead teaching them the necessary.

    Darwinism/creationism is a Byzantine debate that should be limited in think tank and religious forums.

    FFS - how can something which is able to be observed be metaphysical? That's all I have to say.

    Science doesn't explain who runs the biological process. You don't know much about the science of biology if you believe this is what science is telling us.

    You know what is a really Byzantine debate? Debating whether or not Jews are bad. That's what brain-dead uneducated fucked-up morons do.

    science is interested in the what... not the why. religion isn't a scientific inquiry, nutbar.

    but feel free to provide a credible link to those countries have 'canceled darwinism in schools'... except for in madrassas, of course.

    luckily your opinion is as meaningful as my left pinkie toe.

    absurd,
    how you may observe that life emerged by accident, and ONLY chance and NS guide biologic process.

    morever, can you explain what's the importance to teach children that a cell is formed by chance or created by god?? absolutely nothing!

    We may be good doctor despite denying evolution and we may be bad doctor- biologist even if we believe on evolution.

    Darwinism/creationism are just two doctrines, not science!

    I don't know what your issue here is. You refer to Darwinism, but ignor what Darwin actually wrote. This is nonsensical.

    Evolution holds that changes and similarities occur within species and do so as adjustments to conditions prevailing around the species.

    Do you deny that extinctions have occurred? Do you deny that genetic traits are passed from one generation to the next? Do you deny that there is predictability in forcasting the traits of the next generation based on the traits of the previous generation?

    If two black people procreate, their child will probably be black. The same is true for two Asians, two whites or two Indians. If you plant a seed of corn, you will probably grow a plant that bears corn if the conditions are right. There are no other options. It will be quite similar to the previous generation. Not exact, but very similar.

    HOWEVER, if the nutrients and climate prevailing are not absolutely consistant, the children will be taller or smaller, the corn will be more or less prone to grow more or ears. After many, many generations, the members of succeeding generations who survive will be those that have stronger immune systems or greater ability to survive drought or famine or warm or cold as the prevailing conditions might be.

    Your position seems to be that an intelligent Creator would create both a world and the population of flora and fauna BUT make the world a changing one and the inhabitants incapable of change.

    If He could not forcast the problem with this combination, He is not wise. If He could forcast the problem, but he proceeded, He is cruel.

    In your belief system, is your God stupid or cruel?

    Darwinism (in whatever form) is not in fact a scientific theory, but a pseudo-metaphysical hypothesis decked out in scientific garb.
    In reality the theory derives its support not from empirical data or logical deductions of a scientific kind but from the circumstance that it happens to be the only doctrine of biological origins that can be conceived within the constricted Weltanschauung to which a majority of scientists no doubt subscribe."
