It is legal in 14 states in the United States to teach creationism in schools that the public pays for. Creationism will never be proved and evolution has allot of evidence and 95% of all scientists accept it as truth. There are Atheists, Jews, Muslims and many others paying taxes for children to learn a religion they don't believe in. Evolution is not a religion it is fact. In numerous court cases judges have ruled that teaching creationism goes against the first amendment, and it does.

I accept your challenge. We shall argue until the end or a concession is assumed. Here we go:Teaching Creationism in school is legal in those states because of a choice by the majority. You point out that the public dollar is paying for the school. Well that public dollar comes from the tax-paying citizens of that area. If a majority of those particular citizens think that Creationism should be taught at the school they are paying for and win the vote, what is the problem? Over to you Pro.

Teaching creationism is only offering them an opposing view to evolution.
No one is forcing either side to believe theirs.

I was taught evolution in school, but I don't believe in that crap. So flawed, and impossible.

Reasons for voting decision: I am appalled by people like Pro, who make contentious statements and then disappear. All points go to Con for this, even though his argument was very rebut-table.
