Creationism is founded on historic and popular and presently popular ideas on God or Genesis being the truth of origins.
Creationism is well done and famous.
That may be true, but where is any evidence that anything in Genesis has any basis of fact? Creationism is a belief not science. Science deals in evidence not faith. One can believe that rainbows only existed after the Noachin Flood, whereas science can show that that would defy the laws of physics. The storyteller of this story knew not what caused a rainbow. Also something being famous sheds no light on the reality of such. There are many stories that are famous but totally without any evidence of reality ie: Harry Potter, Superman, Hercules, Samson etc.

No one is denying religion. The point is religion is not science.
Creationism is religion, not science. The Genesis creations stories are myths, created by primitive peoples, to explain the unexplainable.
Religion can be taught as religion, it just cannot be taught in science classes any more than astrology, alchemy, magic, superstitions are not taught in science classes, since they are not science.
What natural evidence supports your ideas?
Where origins are taught should the truth be taught.
Yes, which is why evolution, the big bang and other evidence based scientific theories are taught in science classes.
