I have never understood why EITHER needs to be taught in school.
I read somewhere recently that there were (Red) Chinese scientists that had discovered fossil records that also throw serious questions on the Theory of Evolution. I wish I had kept the link but somebody on this forum will have it I am sure.
The way the question is usually phrased is "Should religion be put on an equal standing with evoloserism in public schools?" and the correct answer is, only if the religion you pick is the RIGHT one. I.E. in order to have an apples to apples comparison you'd need a religion which operated on an intellectual level similar to that of evolution and the only two candidates would be Voodoo and Rastafari.
God Bless the Orthodox Church for renewing its mission to liberate minds from Darwinism and relativism.
If you want to instruct students in science in science class (a radical and novel idea to some apparently), then keep out religious dogma. It has no place there. Teach religion in religion class, that is where it belongs.
