    I can live with that interpretation. Or if it HAS to be taught in biology,
    then the teacher goes, there is this alternate theory called creationism which suggests the world was created in 7 days about 6000 years ago.
    Any questions? No, OK, now lets get on with the REAL world.

    I would NEVER accept creationism being taught in a science classroom. In a religion classroom, fine, but not in a science class. And it's not a theory, cos there is no scientific evidence for it, nor is it testable.

    Must say, though, I do like Rowan Williams, he's always struck me as a good man. Very sensible. I hope he gets to make all the modernising changes to the church that he wishes.

    Hopefully that won't happen. I was just showing how a teacher coud deal with it. like in about 5 minutes, end of study, then the rest of the time on real science.

    Heaven knows school children can do with a good laugh.
