    Creationism is NOT a theory.  It is a bronze age explanation of the natural world that has NOTHING to do with science or empirical observation.  Attempts to pretend that creationism is a science are fraudulent and intentionally so.

    They are NOT alternative theories.  theory has a specific meaning in sciecne.  It does not mean what you think it means.  It is not simply a random thought or "faith" you or others have.  If I suggesdt that there is a flying magic toaster, or a hate poor people JEEBUS, that is not a theory, and it is not an "equal magisteria".  

    Certainly, you have noticed that creationists do no suggest that other "theories" be discussed than Xtian creationism- they no more want Buddist "theories" or Roman "theories" or Norseman "theories" taught or discussed than they want science discussed.  they only want their own brand of magic taught.  That lon should alret you to the fact that they do noot want a discussion of "alternative theories"- they only want to prosetylize.

    As my father used to say,"We have the best government money can buy."
