If religion is not permitted to be taught in schools, then neither should evolution/atheism. Fair comment, I reckon.
Regarding atheism in the schools, as other than a definition of what the word means, what else would one teach about it? It is a non-thing; thus has no information to teach. Similarly should there be courses on people who don't believe in Santa or unicorns. Likely both of those would have some real information behind them, because we have quite a history of Santa mythology which naturally becomes a myth for everyone at some point in their childhood.

Evolution, on the other hand is a science which goes back more than 100 years and has been fully supported by scientific evidence, so it is in a whole different category than belief and atheism. In schools that allow truths to be taught, it would be remiss to not teach evolution.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
[9] Man's mind is too puny to grasp the immensity of God's truth and justice.
Note that particular point is always from the mind of a man/woman, and in their case usually the mind is extremely puny relative to humanity as a whole. It always amazes me that humans make the error of stating that they understand God and the Bible, but others, who don't follow God and the Bible, cannot understand because man's mind is too puny. Does that mean, then, they perceived themselves as God himself when they speak those words, or how, with their puny mind did they come up with that idea?

In reality though it is usually the more developed minds of men which have the higher education, and delve more fully into these things that are the least likely to believe in an invisible god.

<quoted text>The ethic of reciprocity exists in some manner in almost every historical society. The Christians screwed theirs up, however. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is far inferior to do unto others as they would have you do unto them.
Good point.

Not to be combative, but evolution is a theory, not a science. But I get your point.

This is better, but I think that you can do even better still. Try to use nice phrases like "raspberry scones" and "dewy meadows" more instead of things like "kill you all" and "bolts of lightening from my ass."
It's "lightning", without an "e".

Tell us again how nurturing the universe is.

"evolution is a fact" is a statement that is based on the presumption that truth is absolute.

Do you believe then that truth is absolute?

One can not prove anything, but only present an argument by providing evidence to support the view being presented.

Curious as to why you chose to use Christianity as the subject of your post?

Is it that you have an agenda?

What definition of theory do you base your assumptions on?

Firstly, that depends on what your definition of God is.

Also we are not that clever that we can solve all the mysteries of the universe. Maybe in the near future we might get closer to answering that question.
