In schools, let's teach both Creation and Evolution, and there respective evidence/varying theories.

Teach it in history or mythology class, but not science class.

We have our third winner in the "don't know the scientific meaning of theory" category.

1) I'm a Lutheran, and I urge all fundamentalist Biblical literalists to realize there are millions of Christians who accept evolution.

2) The reason evolution is taught in schools is because there's evidence for it. What evidence is there for...

... creationism? You're free to home school your child or tell them what they learn in class is wrong (good luck explaining why...), but to force creationism into a classroom is just ... unAmerican.

The only one with actual tangible evidence is evolution. Creationism is not even remotely close to a science and it should never enter the science classrooms.

Creation isn't a theory. It is barely speculation.

Yes, if you want to be semantical, it is a theory of creation. But you and I both know that the question was referring to religious creation.

Some highlights: "Well substantiated"

"repeatedly confirmed"

"testable"

" Scientific theories are the most reliable, rigorous, and comprehensive form of scientific knowledge."

Absolutely 100% not. I would not trust my child's religious education to an elementary school teacher who hasn't gone to seminary, and for all I know, had never stepped in a church.

No one ever seems to grasp that they're not competing or even mutually exclusive theories. We all know that babies grow and change. That's not an explanation of how they're created.

Evolution does not contain an explanation for *existence*

Theory is NOT fact. The first statement was an autocorrect mistake.

Theory is just that ... non-fact. Theory is a supposition that can not be proven.

Knowledge if it's growth DOESNT explain it's birth. If you only knew it was growing and changing, how would you learn it had a mother?

I have a progressive look at creationism and evolution. There is no way the Big Bang theory works without God in the picture because that implies life formed from inanimate objects... which as we all know is impossible. So I look at the biblical...

Soup ... you have missed the point. In your religious zeal for evolution, you missed the point that scientific theory is NOT fact.

You simply can't answer the question of what caused the set actions that resulted in life.

I can't. But seeing there is no evidence to suggest a deity, I wouldn't assume that is the cause.

There is a documentary made by the History Channel produced by James Cameron called EXODUS DECODED. It tries to explain thru science the story of Moses.

Evolution and abiogenesis are different that's true. But that would be like pointing to a growing baby and claiming out knowledge of its growth doesn't explain its birth.

3gun, how would teaching that it was magical space elves was the first cause, be any different than teaching a god did it? The god "theory" and the space elves hold the same amount of evidence. Thus IMO god theories fall flat and shouldn't be taught.

If any science, you hold credibly. Cells are another theory. Do you think that perhaps we are not made of cells? Now, you may ask "but why is evolution more like cell theory and less like the big bang theory". It is because the big bang theory is an
