Okay, I know it isnt totally the same, but...is it so ridiculous for creationist to be exposed to an alternate theory in school such as the theory of evolution and the big-bang-theory? I mean, I remember learning about Jesus and Mohamed in my history classes. And when you learn about those two, you learn about the religions that go with it. It has been a while since I was in a biology class, but I am pretty sure they just teach about how evolution works, such as survival of the fittest and natural selection. And in physics to learn about the big-bang, they never said it happened, they just speculate that it could have happened. Hello! You are in a science class! You should be able to teach scientific fact (or theory) in such a class without being arrested or fired. I had to learn about god and religion in my schooling, heck when you dont go to church where else are you going to learn it? But you dont hear any atheist kids parents complaining to the school board because their child had to learn about the rise of christianity. And you dont hear us complaining about learning creationist philosophy in English or history class. I've got it! The theists are complaining about having to LEARN something.
