I don't mind evolution being taught in public schools nor creationism as long as creationism consists of giving equal instructional time to "all" of the world's religions. Otherwise...it would only be state-run brainwashing. Problem is, anyone teaching creationism would more than likely promote their own individual beliefs even if they did not consciously intend to do so. Therefore...it would only lead to school districts facing numerous lawsuits...especially in larger cities where you have a more culturally diverse population. In other words, it would be close to impossible to ever work evolution and creationism into a public school curriculum. Also...neither subject areas would ever be incorporated into the new Common Core government curriculum sponsored by the Obama Administration. Although, we will all have to watch for Obama somehow slipping Islamic studies into the curriculum.

Evolution, since its been proven countless times? Should teach the children facts instead of faith.

agree with all you said but your wrong on one thing,,,you cant give all the religions of the world equal time,,,muslim/islamic isnt a religion,,,its a beleif in destroying everything not muslim/islamic,,,kinda like the atheist beleive of no GOD,,,but they should teach both sides in public school,,,reason,,,cuz all these beleifs are reality in the real world that every kid is going to have to deal with in some ways in life,,,opinion as facts,,,christians-1,0000,0000 00,00000000,,,atheist-0,,,musl ims- going into the negative real fast,,,now reason the grave digger said that about muslim/islam is,,,cuz their the ones murdering everyone and not one muslim.islamic that claim to be peacefull will stand up against the islamic murderers,,,so this should tell the world something,,,they want everyone and everything non muslim/islam destroyed,,,scary fact,,,just like atheist want the world to belive their beleif,,,called theory,,,and ps,,,obama is our president,,,the grave digger doesnt like the obama way of doing things,,,but shall respect our president cuz he is our president,,,and when america gets that respect back for our leaders instead of all the dis-respect shown to all our leaders on a daily basis as the norm,,,,america will and can stay the greatest country on GODS green earth,,,

there is nothing wrong with a lot of true atheist...they believe in science for the most part...and a lot to their misunderstanding they agree with a lot of what God is...they just don't call it God...sad really...and as for Christians a lot are not truly as they say...JUDGING the other people for their religion or lack of...etc...is anti your own FAITH?! School teaches KNOWN FACTS! or at least AS WE KNOW THEM! THEY ARE STILL MISSING MONKEYS AND THEY HAVE FOUND REAL PEOPLE AND PLACES FROM THE BIBLE?! Leave the faith part out (since it is a PERSONAL MATTER ANYWAY)...but teach that you have proof LEADING to a POSSIBLE LINK WITH MAN AND MONKEY...AND SHOW THE FACTS OF HISTORICAL ITEMS FOUND THAT ARE WRITTEN OF IN THE BIBLE...BE FAIR...TEACH FACTS FROM ALL AND LET PEOPLE MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS ...STOP FORCING YOUR "OWN" "PERSONAL" beliefs on ANYONE...ESPECIALLY YOUR KIDS...THEY AREN'T PUPPETS..THEY ARE PEOPLE

guess what both sides are wrong evolution and creatism both have evidence to prove either side people are trning toward evolution becauseit give science a more important wavy of proof as to deny creatism. scienceis also creatism but refuse to acknowledge the proof as proof. But the athesist are also judging the citzens that our christens a double sided coin proveing that you are doing the same thing that your saying the christens are doing to other religons. school teachers teach from what they learned from books they are only people like yourself.Our country was founded on faith whether you like or not. What is wrong for a person to show their faith just because you don't

in america it will always be the christians,,,if you lived in the middle east and was atheist it would be the islam,,,america is chriatian no matter what therory a atheist comes up with,,,the truth be known,,,not one atheist ever come up with solid proof GOD isnt real,,,but the proof GOD is real is shown everyday all day long for all to see if they would open their minds and relize GOD is good and the lefty democrats are evil,,,this world would be like one big happy place,,,and lets not forget most if not all big wig atheist from the past who todays atheist admire so much all turned to GOD before they died,,,and asked for forgivness for what they taught,,,true fact,,,read some of there books about there veiws and lives,,,the grave digger has just to see how a person gets to not beleiving in GOD,,,and found there are 2 kinds of atheist,,,1st the die hard science freak,,,nothing wrong with science cuz we need science,,,2nd,,,the puppets who follow the crowd to be cool and become brainwashed by the tricks of madmen who are secretly led by satan himself,,,or the left side or dark side,,,which ever you choose to call it,,,kids need directions and if a kid is taught anything will decide what they want to beleive when adults,,,so if you teach the monkey theory or the fish theory,,,then you must teach the GOD facts,,,simple,,,this world cant survive on an atheist guess,,,or an all muslim world of murder and destruction,,,but can survive on faith in GOD,,,like it has sense the begining of time,,,

Why are you arguing with me? I did not say I do not believe in God. However I find YOUR JUDGEMENT of me to be offensive. I am saying God never wanted this war of the masses...and over what? If there is such a thing as God?! That's the FIGHT? You do not know Good without learning of Evil...you do not know right without wrong...that is why we have a free will because we wanted a right to decide for our self....and your jealous God...didn't want to be second...you are supposed to pick God...not have it FORCED on you. And if you want an educated system...you teach them all...you let them learn it all...and the facts...and if you want to practice your faith...which is a personal thing by religion...you make that path available where they can learn of places and ways to do such in their own time...but you do not put it in school and force it on them...just kinda seems like idk ....not FREE WILL...do the faith/spiritual part in your own time...and don't tell me I am a freaking ape without all the pieces...but yes... I am okay with learning that you found crap where we seemed linked...btw Bible does not say evolution does not occur ..may of been set up that way...?!(freaking virus mutate ALL THE TIME)...and your belief of we all must do what we have been taught...I have read stuff as a child of child development...which means I could help support the upbringing of human life....but I have read things of serial killers...so should I chop people up too?! REALLY? That's the parents job to help on the who psychological well being and development and decisions making skills of their child...NOT THE SYSTEM...the SYSTEM is a EDUCATION SYSTEM...NOT ONE FOR DEVELOPING MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING ...that's the PARENTS JOB....*FYI I DO BELIEVE IN GOD

number 1,,,the grave digger finds your offensivenes offensive to the grave digger,,,cuz didnt judge you,,,just gave an opinion just like you did,,,so take a chill pill,,,and your wrong on one thing,,,the education system is a developing mental health tool for children,,,and your tone throughout your whole post sounded like a fist pounding preacher,,,not an opinion,,,this could mean you might have anger issues because of your deep rooted convictions of what you beleive,,,and not sayng you ever chopped anyone up before,,,but a serial killer has anger issues from deep rooted convictions of what they beleive,,,ha haa haaa,,,now if you dont laugh at that last part,,,you really need to take a chill pill,,,ha haa haaa

lol wow...give me a break you know you agree...because sarcasms is the response of a weak mind grave digger ...but yeah I laughed (though I do disagree on the education system thing...seems as if a parents job at that point would simply be to make sure the child survives? yes I agree kids do learn some emotional responses through the school system...simply because it is not coming from home...where is should be...if not I am no better than a babysitter to my own kids ...blah...the world)
