    Ya think?

    Let's see...we've got people who are gun queers, who are also xenophobes, misogynists, and homophobes and liberophobic, too. They hate catholics, women, Blacks, foreignors, immigants, Democrats, poor people, gay people, sick people, anyone that they think might in any way not be just like them.

    You seeing some sort of macho pattern of intolerance here, maybe?

    Fearful, unloveable, nasty white boys hoping to sound like real men by talking tough in a place where they are safe to spout off their vile hatred without getting their sorry punk asses kicked.

    Where every Casper Milktoast can pretend be superman, and anyone who doesn't claim to be superman just like them can be called a pussy with impunity.

    It's the internet, Ravi, and the boys just want to have fun.

    There is a practical reason to leave it out of the science classroom, in that there are hundreds of creation stories.

    There is a rational reason to leave it out as well, in that creationism and ID do not have qualities that make them science. They are not science. They make no testable predictions. They are positions of faith. They are not subject to change.

    A "viewpoint that is not complete?" That is meaningless. Any subject (math, reading, science, social studies, whatever) teaches a child a particular disciplne. The place to teach faith is in faith classes.

    Evolution never purports to be religion. Only those who believe creationism call evolution a religion. Scientists generally have no difficulty distinguishing between science and religion.

    Creationists seem to confuse the two regularly.

    Scientists have no problem with faith. Scientists do have a problem with religion viewpoints being taught in science classes.

    I mean really, we don't ask to come into your churches and spout evolution to you on Sundays, but that would be the analogous situation, think about it.

    Then respect the differences between faith and science..

    You can prove evolution to the same point you can prove creation. The real issue is you dont have to have a creator in the evolution theory and you use that to say hey this is science. But if there is creator you say not science because you have to prove the existence of a supreme being. When in all actuality none of the evolutionary theories have been proven so I think that you can take a scientific approach to any theory.
