  •  Uhm... (0+ / 0-)

    A 'creator'  allowed/designed implemented, and continues to do so with its evolution process.

    The 'creator' entity is called God by some, the Big Bang by others, and for many who understand the Bible is neither a scientific nor a history/ factual book, it is a mix of the two; for what is important is not to convince others to share what one believes but to allow them to take the path they wish to take.

    Amen.

      Students should be taught the Truth.
      We don't let them choose whether or not to believe in algebra.
      We don't let them choose whether or not to believe in gravity.
      We don't let them choose whether or not to believe in  electromagnetism.
      We don't let them choose whether or not to believe in evolution.
      We teach these things because they are true.

        big-t "Truth." You teach what is accepted science (when the textbook is written, may change in the next edition), based on interpretation of physical evidence (facts) for what we call "theory." You do not teach Absolute Truth, nor can you require belief-in from any student. All the student has to do is pass the test.
