While 67% of women agree with her that creationism should be taught alongside
evolution in schools
Is that true?
Especially when the US is ranted 29th in the world in Science? Especially when we need a good science base to be able to learn new ways to use renewable energy sources? To find cures for Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis, Leukemia, etc. To be able to handle our trash/recycling better?ETC.!
I know that there are a lot of Jews who believe/live/teach that what is said in the Torah is "it." Not open for discussion, but they are teaching their kids in religious schools, where they can control the education. They are not advocating (that I know about) that this is taught in public schools.
Isn't creationism a religious belief? Don't we have the protection of "Separation of Church & State?"
I know that what my Catholic friends believe is different that what my 7th Day Adventist, Quaker, Methodist friends believe... When we start allowing creationism to be taught in public schools, whose version are we going to use? (Caveat, what my friends believe may not be representational of their religions tennents.)
Isn't this why churches have schools? That is at least part of the reason why Synogogues have schools (they also want Kosher meals/snacks, etc.).
