According to this Poll, 54% of UK Adults support the teaching of Creationism alongside Evolution in science classes!
Come on people, what the hell are you thinking? No matter how you dress it up neither Creationism nor Intelligent Design is science. It poses no testable theory. It is not falsifiable. There has never been a paper written about it that has been subjected to peer review in any repultable science journal.
It’s NOT SCIENCE.
You can’t teach it in a SCIENCE classroom.
Just like you can’t teach Woodworking in an English classroom. Or Cooking in a Physical Education class.
Please, for the sake of our children, keep the science curriculum strictly scientific. Don’t let educational standards fall any further.
If you absolutely have to teach Creationism then there is already a classroom to do it. It’s the Relgious Studies class (which, by the way, I’m still pissed that no-one told me I could opt out of when I was at school, it could have saved me from a huge amount of tedium).
