In what class should it be taught? Only science should be taught in a science class. I believe creation stories are already taught in religions classes.

Creation theory is being taught to children in MANY Christian homes today and was taught in American schools for 100's of years and kids suffered no ill effect.

Many people view it as true and correct and frankly the evidence could be seen both ways, I would ask why not allow it. It would help develop critical thinking skills

Judging by TannerJK's previous debates I'm going to make the assumptions that he will probably not post an argument and if he does he will forfeit as soon as I post mine.

We should also teach a course on the tooth fairy and how she serves as a good example for a functioning capitalist model.

Translation of the proposition, "we should lie to children"

Can creationism teach us any thing useful ? Can it teach anything about biology, geology, astronomy, ecology, animal sciences, botany, cancer biology, environmental science, forestry sciences, genetics, marine sciences, neuroscience, plant sciences, pharmacology, or zoology. Because in order to learn any of these Scientific Disciplines, you need to understand evolution. Where does the knowledge for creationism come from, can it be learned without faith?

Sorry. I would definitely be willing to debate you in a similar topic if you would like. Just send me a challenge.
