It is absolutely relevant to their petition to be accredited as a “science degree” a course in their religious beliefs.

Creationism is not, and never will be, science. It rejects the scientific method in favor of a particular interpretation of scripture.

Judges rule on what is religious in nature all the time, how else would they ever determine if a law is “respecting the establishment of religion” if they were somehow unable to discern what “religion” even was?

Of course judges rule on religious matters all the time but the Constitution requires strict neutrality.

I am afraid my commonsense observation just can't get through the heads of people bound and determined to use the federal judiciary as a sort of Sanhedron. It's not designed that way and eventually that ambition is going to result in the total disestablishment and reconstruction of the judiciary ~ and possibly in ways the religious fanatics who want the judges to rule on their personal beliefs don't count on.
