Well you keep saying that this or that has been decided.
Yet it hasn't.
Yes, in fact it has. You just do not want to accept the reality since it conflicts with your dogma.
creationism is a critic of evolution etc. you can't just dismiss your critic.
Yes, we can. Without any evidence, with just creationists' insisting they must be right based only on their fear of losing their faith, we can dismiss the rubbish chants of "goddoneit" very easily.
creationism dOES have the right to criticize and make its own conclusions and teach it to the kids.
Yes it does, but in church only, not in the public classroom of a secular nation and most certaily not in any science curriculum anywhere. You do not qualify for that privilege.
if these folks are teaching creationism was proved wrong back in the day well rebuttal is our right.
Rebut all you want. Any claim to science by creationism is long dead and burried. Done in by creationists themselves.
You've been re-butting for the last 150 years and it has only worked to show how stupid your dogma actually is.
You seem to think that freedom of a nation or freedom of enquiry is to be controlled by some boss.
It is you who want to control. You want to control all of society. You want to start with the young minds and build a theocracy where only you control. You want to brain wash all of society into kowtowing to your specific brand of religious dogma to the exclusion of all other befiefs (even other Christian ones).
You have a history of killing freedom and free inquiry in any society you can sink your fangs into. We will not repeat this mistake again.
We see you coming, Robert.
it simply is a fact that creationism is a historic and present common conclusion on many matters in the nations.
It is a fact that creationism is the demented ravings of a minority religious cult seeking control of the society.
Censoring it is immoral and illegal and just poor form where truth is the desired goal.
You do not qualify for a science class any more than the old alchemy does. That is not censorship. It is a fact of life. Deal with it.
if you think your side proved creationism wrong then let the kids weigh the evidence themselves.
We are teaching the kids the reality of this world and how to think. Your propagandizing them into uncritical allegience to some bloody 2500 year old myth is anathema to human freedom of thought.
What's your fear?
Dark ages Europe. Present day Iran.
