I think that that is why the evolution debate is considered such an agenda by the scientists by many. If you can hardly discuss it when the KIDS bring it up and can't mantion the "G" word, then it's more than just about "teaching science correctly". It's just not realistic to restrict the subject matter in any one subject to only the sublect being taught. Like you can't discuss anything not Social Studies in the SS class or if it's not Math, you can't touch it in math class. I remember discussing alchemy in Chemistry and no one is having meltdowns about that. Sometimes you can get into really intersting discussions and learn a lot by going off topic *occasionally*. I also think it helps develop critical thinking skills.
I agree about you opinion of the creation story. It's so often criticized for being "inaccurate" but really, just how much info can be put into a couple chapters that deal with such a broad and complex topic. I think all in all it's a pretty good summary of what happened and has much more scientific support than a lot of scientists give it credit for.

No kidding. Can you point us towards actual SCIENTIFIC studies that show the validity of the Biblical creation story?
Anxiously awaiting your scientific, peer reviewed, evidence....
