I totally agree 100%. You should be able to teach evolution in church. Get a class room in church and teach evolution and let anyone that "wants" to come, come to it. It will be by choice not by "have to" or "force".
Nope, to be fair, all members will have to come. Attendance at schools is mandatory, if you want to be fair then the members of your church's attendance would be mandatory.

Come on Sub. I am starting to think you are not as smart as I gave you credit for. Of course all members will come to "church", it is the "class" that would be a choice to go to or not. lol

Please, Can you describe in detail why the atheist countries "suck" as you put it?
Please stop playing stupid, you could move to any one of them. Face it they line up to come West not vice versa. Every fringe group has their alternatives set, yet they don't move there, because the alternatives suck

The only thing that prohibits the ToE (or the BB, for that matter) in the eyes of some Christian churches is the literal interpretation of Genesis and reactionary doctrine. To many, this is no longer a valid theological barrier against decades of evidence and research. As there are many parts of the Bible that are generally accepted as allegorical, the biggest obstical standing between science and the vocal faction of naysayers is stubborn prejudice and ignorance. I, for one, do not find it at all surprising that Islam and Christian fundamentalism are aligned on this topic.

You remind me of a tick or mosquito bite. It annoys you and the more you scratch it the more it annoys you but if ignored it will eventually go away and be forgotten for it really is of no use or matter when it comes down to it.

Once again, if you want a fair analogy your members would be forced to go to the lesson just as you want to inflict your nonsense on innocent school kids.

Actually I would not be averse to a proper class teaching both. Of course that would make creationism look even worse, once they realized how those crazy Christians totally abandoned the scientific method.

I already said I don't think kids should have to/be forced to take a Christianity class. It should be their choice. Same as I stated about teaching evolution at church, go ahead but people should only come to it by choice.

So since I'm in your skin, you will come to know the full effect. It starts out like an annoying itch, you try to scratch but can't fix.
It wont go away though, soon you will be ripping chunks of flesh from yourself. Your skeleton will remain.

Unfortunately, Creationism/ID is not observed in the real world, therefore they are not science.

There *IS* scientific evidence -- LOTS of it -- for the Theory of Evolution, therefore it is taught in science class AS Science.

Keep Creationism/ID in church, Private Schools, at home, or on street corners. But keep science in public school Science classes.

There is NO scientifically valid evidence for a world-wide flood at ANY time in history

However, there is that part of science that is really nothing more than "theory", the same as the "Theory of Evolution" (1837) scientist whom we all know by the name of "Charles Darwin". Darwin's Theory of Evolution was just that, a "theory".
There was/is very little scientific proof that his theory actually held any water at all except for the fact that partial truths have been manufactured into whole truths to justify Darwin’s “theory”.
Link to the article:

So you have no idea what "theory" means in the context of science .... and .... you just hate science because we don't include your god in it.
