Why don't they just teach both creationism and evolution as theories and be done with it? That way the students can decide for themselves but don't censor one theory or the other. I'm not for a religious sermon being preached in schools.

"creationism" IS a religious sermon. It goes something like this:

God made Adam out of mud.

God made Eve out of Adam's rib.

All the animals were vegetarians, even the T-Rex's.

A really "subtil" talking snake convinced Eve to eat of some weird fruit and she kindly shared it with Adam.

God kicked them both out of this really nice park they lived in and put a flaming sword that moved around by magic at the entrance to the park so they couldn't get back in, along with some cherubim, which I believe are really buff angels.

There was a whole lot of VERY interesting incest going on and lots of begatting.

So, the peeps started doing some crazy sh!t like drinking beer and singing and dancing and making weird statues that they worshipped and STILL begatting like rabbits so God got pissed and decided to kill and destroy EVERYTHING cause the Peeps were bad.

Fortunately, there was this guy Noah, who God thought was a straight up guy, so he decided to kill and destroy EVERYTHING except Noah and his family.

God also said Noah should build a big boat and he had to take a couple of animals of every "kind" on the big boat so that there would still be animals after he killed and destroyed EVERYTHING.

Then God opened up the double hungs in the sky and turned up the water supply to the fountains and fludded the world.

Just for good measure, God ALSO made the continents break up and zip to their present locations at breakneck speeds, made ALL of the big mountain ranges and had the massive global flud make a grand canyon, but only in Arizona.

After a year of scooping p00p Noah and his family were able to dock the boat because God had "a big wind" blow the waters away, which is a nice Biblical way of saying God farted.

After that T-Rex's and all the animals with big sharp teeth could eat meat, good thing that Noah was such a fast runner at 600+ years old, and the peeps went back to drinking beer and singing and dancing and making weird statues that they worshipped and begatting like rabbits!

Sounds like a proper scientific "theory" to me [/sarcasm].

Because evolution, with its vast amount of data, IS a theory...

"Creationism", with no supporting evidence, is not...

Theories are well-supported explanations of natural processes... like Evolution, Plate Tectonics, etc...
