I have no problem with teaching the philosophies and histories of religion in school in something of a World Religions class, but teaching creationism as if it has some form of credible scientific evidence in science class is a problem.

It's not good to confuse children with teaching them both facts and myths calling them equal...
So definitely not

Every religion has it's own creation myth, so it wouldn't hurt to add them to a college course pertaining to more ancient mythologies. It'd be fun for quite a few people. The offended will just have to handle it in stride. If they choose to protest, I'll break out my toga and join them! Big Grin

It most certainly should not be taught along side evolution because creationism has no evidence, it adds nothing to the conversation and it leaves nothing to be explored, the answer is just it happened because of magic. Also whos creation story would you use they cant all be right? So not only would it distort the facts it wouldnt be politically correct to choose one story of creation over another.

No. There is no facts for Creationism to waste public funds on, and valuable class time.

Only if they they also teach the Santa Clause theory of delivery of presents and the Tooth Fairy theory of recycling children's baby teeth.

Evolution should remain in classrooms as part of the science curriculum. While creation can be taught as myth in philosophy, along with all of the other creation myths.
If someone wants religion to be taught in schools, they need to go to private or parochial schools. Of course, there will always be right wing religious people out there who think religion has a place in public schools because parochial schools and private schools usually come up short on accreditation. This can prevent many religious people from entering prominent professions where accreditation is not just a show of integrity. It seems to be quite a fight.

I can say for myself; If something new is discovered and history needs to be rewritten to include it, I don't want it rewritten, filtered through someone's belief system. If history must be rewritten, then I want it rewritten with factual evidence.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

I would say no on Creationism because of no facts, once again.

Not in the same class. If there's a religious philosophy class that the school offers, and hopefully that would be an elective subject, then it can go ahead and teach creationism.
However, I'd say that creationism has no place in a science class because...it's not science. No matter how many people believe it, no matter how strongly they believe it, even if it was right, it still wouldn't belong in a science class because...it's not science.
