Your religion is not science. We don't teach geography in science classes, why should we teach creationism?

It's a shame children will never have a chance to learn about creationism if they don't hear it in school. If only some school associated with the church would teach it on Sundays...a "Sunday School", if you will. What a concept!

Please do us all a favor and return to elementary school long enough to learn the difference between a scientific theory and a religious one prior to presenting your ideas as such.

Frustratedly Yours,
Erick Adam

I actually recall learning the difference between fact and belief in early elementary school. I remember the teacher actually giving examples of fact and belief. And then she said, "what about god?" So everyone kept saying fact because in Catholic school you are taught god is fact. Much to our surprise she said that god is a belief because you can't see him to prove that he exists. I thought that was pretty ballsy for an elementary teacher in Catholic grade school. But I appreciate it.

woah, they said god is a belief in a CATHOLIC school? I am shocked. Did the teacher keep her job?
Seriously, that is great that she said that though.

Thank you. After listeming to these people, I needed a reminder that it's just the crazy faction that make me want to pull my hair from my head and run through the streets screaming "the world is doomed!!!"
