I don't support teaching creationism as part of history classes as it was taught when I was in high school, but I do support that as an elective category in forensic courses it ought to be taught, but not as fact, fiction, or myth, but to understand those who are being investigated by archeology majors. Then again, when the Bible is presented in the public school system, it has to be taught for what it really is, not as the unerring word of God, as the Christians teach. You see, if creationism becomes a part of a curriculum it MUST come with the art of scientific argumentation, distinguishing among fact, belief, theory, and fiction. Where Christians are concerned, if the empirical evidence is presented, they are offended and accuse the teacher of persecuting the Christians as we see among Republicans in the U.S. Congress. "Christianity is currently a victim of being made illegal," one Congressman stated falsely. What is becoming illegal is the Christian persecution of non-conformers and non-believers. Protecting the religious and expressive freedoms of all Americans is not just a right for Christian Americans as the naïve Christian used to think. I imagine that this is the Christian thinking across the globe. I, an ex-Christian, can't buy into idol worship like Christianity, but I respect their right to believe in conflict with their own scriptures, but to put their religion in the school system is wrong. That is different than putting the "theory" of creationism, even evolution, in the school system.
