I would have nothing against a philosophy class that looked at any number of wild ideas like aliens or YEC. So long as it was embedded in study of formal logic, and training in common human cognitive biases along with some real understanding of statistics.<quoted text>
Should creationism be taught in school..why not?? Did I specify a science classroom, no I did not. History class, maybe. Ancient alien theory along with other theories should be taught in schools..it makes people think. I never said it should be taught in a SCIENCE class.
We haven't even discovered everything there is to know about earth. "They"always talk about evolution and Lucy etc, but there are always holes in the theory of evolution. Until we explore ever inch of land and water, everything is up in the air. Obviously we came from a common ancestor, but how do we know where exactly that common ancestor came from?? Algae? It could very well be from a race of beings that are from somewhere other than earth. They used to teach as fact that we came from monkeys and that has been debunked. Evolution simply means change, of course evolution happens all the time. The truth is the truth wether we have discovered it or not.
Then you might have some useful outcomes. If not, then leave alien landing talk in the school yard at recess!
