wow. Can't they just teach what is normally accepted and proven rather than something unproven? Those creationist people can just homeschool. And where's the *fossil evidence*?

Only Christian right wing nut jobs would teach that. I do not believe that the Australian mainstream is being taught this.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Aus kids are being taught this crap. It's only been in the last few years when the right wing christians gained control of our governments again through lies and deceit we drooped the religious bullshit back in the 50's from state run schools.

No, cause that would be teaching the kids world politics. And they are too young to comprehend it...

They can teach whatever they want as long as they mention it in their curriculum, you always have the option of pulling your kids out

As long as they keep these fairytales out of Science classes and confine them to RI classes, then it will be trained teachers conducting the Science classes. Sooner or later kids will work out which is correct and evidence-based. Then Creationists will have shot themselves in the foot.
