Yes, teach the controversy!
No, science only!
Most Americans believe in God. We should teach what they believe otherwise we are not respecting the American ideal of democracy.
It should not be taught in Biology class. A separate class that teaches a variety of popular religious views should be made.
nearly all of the people right of this comment 100% wrong in implying that "evolution" is fact. It is still a very heavily debated subject and still remains a theory. Really, it is about just as divided as religions are
Yes it should be taught in religion and history classes.
It's not fair to religious people to do otherwise.
I think Creationism (whether you believe it's true or not) is good to learn about.
Like others said, it should be taught in religious history or social studies classes. It is not biology.
I voted Yes, but let me just say this. I think the Bible should be taught in Bible classes, and Biology should be taught in Biology classes. I personally feel that origins should not be taught in jr. high or high school classes. Leave that to college, but if you are going to teach evolution, and plate tectonics, then you should teach other theories too. I feel that our biology classes are very one sided in a realm that has many possibilities. Teach all of the scientific theories if you are going to teach any. Teach plate tectonics and hydro plate theory and whatever other theories there may be that attempt to explain the continental drift. I would prefer that we leave theories out of the classroom until they are old enough to discern for themselves whether or not any god exists. Just teach facts, and then move into the different ways to interpret those facts. See what they might come up with when they have no pre-existing notions of how things are supposed to be. It might move science much further.
Not science. Teach in history.
Intelligent design is pure garbage...
There is no controversy. It it clear that a god does not exist.
Biology is SCIENCE, the Bible is RELIGION. Teach science in science classes. Teach BS is theology classes.
Not as a mandatory class and probably not at all because teaching Biblical Creationism (which I'm referring to Catholicism), then other religions, such as Judaism, Mormonism, ect. It'd be unfair to teach one religion (even as an optional class) because then other parents & children would want their or a specific religion to be taught and you simply cannot have two dozen different religion classes. I don't know about public schools but my school has a religion class where you briefly learn about the major religions and that's okay but not a Bible class.
No biblical creation should be left for home or church.
Teaching creationism in class would be like teaching that the Earth is flat...
Sorry but we cannot taint our education with the antithesis of education.
School is a place to learn science and facts. Not to teach things that contradict science and facts.
Labarum's argument of "evolution is just a theory" is very flawed. Gravity is a theory as well, does that mean that we don't know that gravity is real? No. The definition of a theory is something that has been observed in nature many, many times but can not be created by humans with the current technology we have access to.
evolution is taught with out pressuring you to believe in it creationism can't be taught with out being pressuring and besides we're supposed to have religious tolerance how would the atheists feel
There is no controversy. There is no debate. Religion is not science. Christ, it's 2014.
Schools should teach only what they know to be fact. Just because "The Bible says so" is not valid evidence when compared to the tests and experiments that went into achieving scientific knowledge.
HECK NO! Are you insane? It has no scientifically backed research! Why fill young minds with garbage and bs?
You'll confused those innocent minds :(
