Simple answer. Don't teach any religion in schools, period. Leave that for the church and the home where it belongs. If you don't want your child to have an education then don't send them to school.

This solves their so-called problem regarding "double standards". Which is actually rather amusing considering that science requires evidence yet they demand people take their baseless religious opinions seriously which have ZERO evidence.

The State requirement that middle-school students should be taught concepts they can't really comprehend, such as humans and oak trees having a common ancestor, is a State imposed religion.

Lack of comprehension is solved by teaching. Your lack of comprehension was never solved because you never learned and never wanted to.

Just because someone doesn't understand math does not make teaching math state imposed religion. Sorry, but you already lost this argument in court around 20 years ago. You're still making the same mistake because you never learned last time and never wanted to. That's why creationism lacks progress.

You're still stuck in the 19th century.

Teaching children that they aught to believe conventional authorities is child abuse. To expect middle school students to believe that humans and oak trees have a common ancestor without a proof is a state imposed religion.

Of course shoob the boob starts with a lie. Yes, when you are first introduced to any idea you will not understand it. If we have evidence, which we do, to back up the theory of evolution then it is not a religion.

shoob knows that his own beliefs are wrong and evil, he is trying to paint other ideas with the same brush so that his ideas don't seem so bad. That is called projection and it rarely works.

Like I said, you lost this argument near 20 years ago. Ad hom is all you can resort to since you have no case.

God is an unconventional authority so I'm all for creationism in a religious context. However, pure science requires quantum creationism.

Correct, and quantum theory is the science of the supernatural.

Your vid is not proof of anything other than you have no idea what science is.

My proof is only a proof of what I claimed it proves. Now I could tell a just-so story. That would be proof that I understand what science is to you.

Please explain how the belief of evolutionists that humans and oak trees have a common ancestor, absolutely incomprehensible to middle-school students in terms of verifiable science, is not a State imposed religion.

Because it has evidence. And you still lost this argument decades ago. The fact you think that repeating debunked creationists fallacies demonstrates you're not only incapable of learning from your mistakes, you're not even interested in learning from your mistakes.

What you call evidence is not comprehensible science to middle-school students.
