I'm sure you're aware that there are many scientists who have come to a different opinion than the one you stated in your post. These viewpoints should be presented to our schoolchildren. Promoting unquestioning faith in evolution is not the antithesis to lying to schoolchildren.
Dr. Michael Behe and perhaps a few college professors who are not actively doing scientific research aren't "many". If you want to argue from authority, then Google "project Steve", a list of scientists named Steve who support evolution. The significance of the little project is that there are many more scientists named Steve who support evolution, than all the "scientists" who object to it.
Promoting unquestioning faith in evolution is not the antithesis to lying to schoolchildren.
Evolution has been observed in nature during recorded history. It has been observed in the laboratory. It has been observed in nature by examining historical evidence. Evolution is "falsifiable", yet it has never been falsified, even by those scientists you speak of.
And finally, evolution is the only realistic explanation for those identical ERV virus DNA segments found in various species of primates, including humans.
Evolution is a valid scientific theory, and evolution has been discovered to have occurred, thus it is a fact as well. Telling children otherwise is lying to them, no different than telling the world is flat.
