This is mainly for people who don't want it taught...why?
I think that both theories should be taught and let the kids decide what they want to pursue.
ugh...i need reasons for them not to teach it for a paper i'm writing...but thanks anyway.
I suppose one could argue that using tax dollars to teach religious messages is illegal under the first amendment. I'm not sure I agree with that argument, but nevertheless there it is.
Certainly if there is a world religion or faith class that would be useful.
You realize when you get these assignments, they want what YOU think, not what others think, right?
Just tell your teacher to f off. Tell him you don't feel like doing it, and school is just a way that older people keep the youth out of the job market.
Privatize education and we make the issue mute.
The problem with creation "science" is that it isn't science. It requires belief in a divine creator. Creation "science" has been invented by religious groups as a way to sneak religious prosthelyzing into public schools. And Matt, privitizing education won't work, unless you intend to use government funding to pay for scholarships for every child in this country who can't afford the private school tuition, uniform, and books. Trust me, that'll be far more expensive than the public school system we have now.
...Is nothing more than religious dogma dressed in flimsy robes of pseudo-science. Religion should be taught at home or in the church/synagogue/mosque, etc.
If you want to teach religion in schools, do it as part of a survey of all of the world's great religions...After providing coursework in effective decision making and critical thinking. Then kids can make an informed choice about religion.
