""Only that. I was taught very little about the scientific view of evolution in school (I learned much more at home about it than at school), and I was taught absolutely nothing about creationism either at school or at home, but I'd frankly have been quite interested in hearing about both of them, and then allowed to use my own intelligence to sort out the various implications as I saw fit. I eventually did that anyway, on my own initiative.""

Why do you always feel it necessary to over complicate issues LH?

Nobody here has suggested that Creationism should not be taught in schools.

The point you insist upon avoiding is that most sensible people do not want it taught in science classes.

No objection has been raised to teaching it either in "Religious Instruction", or in "Comparative Religion" classes.

""Religion and science are not fundamentally opposed, because they are devoted to seeking out different objectives.""

Same answer! They are not fundamentally opposed, as long as they are taught in separate classes.

The only people I see objecting to that point are Creationists who insist that it is a science (which, clearly, it is not).
