Science class is for science. Christian, Jewish, Hindu, and other religious creation myths can be discussed as myth in comparative religion, sociology of culture / religion, or even philosophy classes, but they have about as much relevance to the hard sciences as cake has to running marathons.
* Disclaimer: I'm a clueless sociologist.

Hello and welcome from another Finn
The point you made should be blatantly obvious but when intelligence gets replaced with religiousness, the problems ensue.
Terve! I'm actually not from Finland; I'm a native Michigander of multiracial (European / Native American / African / Asian, but not Finnish as far as I know) descent. "Finn" is simply short for Finley . En puhu suomi, olen amerikalainen.
Side note: I should probably spell it "Fin" here to avoid confusion.
On-topic note: Creationism is an absurd religious myth that has no place in any science classroom, regardless of the backgrounds of the students or teachers.
