And it does not appear they will ever stop.

so will they have separate classes for all of those origins classes or will they all be taught in the same class?

If they have separate classes, what if only one person signs up? Do they have to pay a teacher to teach one student?

To be fair Romney has said that evolution belongs in science class, and creationism belongs in philosophy class.

No telling what he'll say about it tomorrow though.

I think he said that years ago and has already flipped.

I'm a Christian and would be disappointed, if not offended, if my son doesn't learn about both creationism and evolution. IMO, both have plenty of merit.

I'm a Christian and I say lets leave the religious shit to the religious people.

do people understand that this kind of shiat over a long enough period will seriously hinder our country's ability to compete scientifically on a global scale?

Agree. Science is very important to developing our youth.


Government and religion DO NOT MIX. THEY NEVER FUCKING WILL.

Our country was founded on freedom of religion. Not everyone in this country is a Christian and they still bring a lot to the table in helping our country. It's imperative now more than ever that we do not alienate different people.

I mean what did that moron Santorum say? He want's the government to stay out of people's healthcare.

Mean while, he would want to abolish abortion, refrain from sexual education in our schools, etc....

typical republican logic.

Note that they include Scientology on that list. Are you really OK with your son spending anywhere from 1-24 homework hours after school researching how Xenu sent a bunch of spirits to Earth on DC-8s where they bonded with us who evolved from clams?

Or.. are you just taking the ( fairly safe) bet that the Judeo-Christian story of creation will get the most time?

Well, that's one way to do it but perhaps I want a more objective lesson plan that whatever a particular church interprets as the truth.

My problem with church in particular is that there are more theories on what the Bible means than actual pages in the Bible. Schools may be less apt to teach a certain denonination's perspective and use a more historically accurate version.

I want my kid to know what all the theories are out there, even the ones I disagree with or think are complete nonsense.
