Should schools teach creationism alongside evolution?
Can creationism be taught in science class alongside the theory of evolution?
I think evolution should be taught as the more plausible explanation for life. Creationism should also be explained, but explained more as a mystical theory similar to Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. Creationism should be more of a "humanities" class.
Science is an instrumental aspect of education, so schools should teach what is more scientifically viable. While people will continue to argue the case for creationism, evolution is more scientifically viable and should be presented that way.
It's time society wakes up and realizes this. After all, it did take a while for people to realize that the earth is not flat, but we realize this now.
You can't teach children the theory of creationism as that will lock their mind towards scientific approach and will nullify our chances for getting future scientific explanation to evolution if it really happened.? But we now are not in state to say it was just creation it might have science which is at present seeming beyond us. Just like creation of stars to ancient people seemed beyond science but now we understand it well......... But giving them bed time stories about creationism theory is no harm.......
Nope. Science classes need to teach science, not religion. Creationism belongs in philosophy or comparative religions, perhaps, but not science.
Creationism and 'Intelligent Design' only belong in Religious Education classes. They are not based on any scientific fact and work against the scientific method: namely, we look at evidence and find a conclusion that fits it; IDers look at their conclusion and then search for evidence to support it.
Religion has no place in a science classroom, just as science has no place in an RE classroom

Should creationism be taught in a science classroom?What are your thoughts? I'm leaning towards it being discussed as a "theory" in school curriculum. Honestly, I'm not really sure how it's mentioned or taught currently in our schools. Does anyone know?

I came to the HubPages Forum several months ago posting a "challenge" that must have seemed presumptuous (though I didn't intend it) or (perhaps) arrogant of me... By the end of it though, I considered my beliefs to be as substantial, if not moreso, than those of anyone who came to check...
