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.
Edited by Finn, : clarification
You're entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.
quote: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.
