Billion + believe in Satan. Should all schools be mandated to teach Creationism?

We must save our children from foolish belief in the supernatural.

Education is the only tool that we have to drag ourselves and our children out of ignorance and superstition and that education should include that it is foolish to read myth literally. No more Dark Ages should be allowed.

Comparative Religion should be taught to insure that no child is lost to creationist intellectual dissonance. We must expose our children to Comparative Religion as soon as they can understand Evolution which would be taught alongside of it.

To do less would be shirking our duty to our children and their young minds. If you do not supports this type of all-inclusive education, please show why you oppose it?

Remember that when President Bush backed up stem cell research, it gave other countries a chance to advance away from the U.S. and hurt the U.S economy.

If the U.S. fails to educate it"s children properly in Comparative Religion and Evolution --- and the various sciences that stem from it, --- the U.S. will shrink it"s economy and power as compared to those countries who have a fuller and more intelligent education program.

Do you agree that it is the duty of the U.S. education system to maintain a first world standard of education in the teaching of Creationism, Comparative Religion and Evolution, --- and catch up to more intelligent countries?

Discussions of how the universe began for one.

But the answer would be decided by those who set the curriculum.

We have the odd example from the U.S but various countries would write their own.

These discussions are not science, and the science concerning how the universe began does not stem from Comparative Religion.

To foolish Christians, the bible is their science book on creation.

No. If you are talking about the US, the US is a secular nation. If you want to bring in one religion's myth about the origin of life then you must bring in every religion's. That is an impossible feat as there is not enough time to teach all of them. Instead, we need to stick to science and facts, and teach evolution, one of the most supported scientific theories out there.

Even if we do comparative religion, we cannot address all religions in a timely manner. Not only that, but how could anyone ensure that the teacher will not teach with bias? How can we know that the parents of students won't be outraged?

I do think that comparative religion should be an elective in high schools (if it is possible to address enough of the religions and get an unbiased teacher), but not mandatory.

That would do nothing for the young minds we presently lose to unhealthy belief in the supernatural.

Being as secular nation is the plus side of this and you are a bit behind the times.

This is a U.K. program imported to the U.S. and from what I understand from the Brit that gave it to me, after a few hiccups, it is working quite well.

Further.
The secular adult world is better educated in religion than the religious world and that indicates a secular interest in religious studies. If secular parents want to know and teach themselves religious studies, it follows that they would not mind starting their secular interest in religion earlier for their children. They would vote for a more intelligent level of religious education. It would improve on what is being taught to religious children today.

It is also the duty of the secular world to insure that it's future members are not as deluded by superstitious belief as their parents. The tipping point of belief is fast approaching and duty says that we should facilitate change.

Is a good knowledge base a good defence against superstition?
Yes it is.

Is it natural law to condemn what you have created?
