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.
Hello and welcome from another Finn
The point you made should be blatantly obvious but when intelligence gets replaced with religiousness, the problems ensue.
The comments from the cretin side are like: "Whatever the Bible says is so; whatever man says may or may not be so - is the only position a Christian can take..." or "If scientific conclusions contradict the word of God, the conclusions are wrong, no matter how many scietific facts may appear to back them." or "Christians must disregard scientific hypotheses or theories that contradict the Bible".
Those above are from a textbook "BIOLOGY FOR CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS".
Biology for Christian Schools - Wikipedia
Scary, very scary.

Actually I didn't think you were. I just saw the linguistic opportunity I could not miss
Welcome aboard anyway. Fortunately I do speak English.
