    Like the attempt to force creationism to be taught as if it were a science and other antiscience efforts are against science to the detriment of humanity.

    There is no attempt to force creationism to be taught as if it were a science. There is an attempt to force the teaching of the truth about the theory of evolution by revealing its many flaws.

    So you are not advocating teaching creationism in a science class. That is good.

    I am only advocating against teaching that all the theory of evolution and billions of years of unknown past history is science.

    Ok, then what do you want to replace teaching evolution with? Come on, you can say it. You are among, well maybe ONE friend here.

    "...to the detriment of humanity."

    Sad, you think those that don't agree with you do so to the detriment of humanity. You
    also think your different than those who hold religious beliefs, when those that
    disagree with them are some how less than as well. All people do the same things
    they don't share the same types of sacred cows.

    Replace it with teaching what is known in science instead of what is speculated. They can continue to teach natural selection and the programs in DNA that makes each creature what it is and leave all the speculation about what might have happened out of the classroom.

    But of course teach the true religion in that science classroom by polluting young impressionable minds with your particular brand of claptrap. It is just plain lucky you are in no position of power, you have no influence over ANYONE and it is clear you are not a parent. You are just another of the many trolls with no interest in real science, only destroying that which YOU judge to be heresy. You are a cretin and should be shipped to the tenth century where you would be a lot happier because there would be so many fear mined people you could trap.

    No religion in science class, just pure science without the speculation about millions and billions of years or about apes evolving into men.

    So exactly what would you be teaching them in that 'science' class?

    Science should only include things we know from astronomy, biology, chemistry. and physics. We should not teach what we don't know as fact.

    Speculation on creation and evolution should be covered in classes on philosophy and religion, not science.

    And how much creationism would you allow to be taught in that science class?
