I thought evolution had been disproved.
Children should be taught on facts rather than religios beliefs.
Those that believe in any Gods are the equivalent of those who used to believe the world was flat. Believing in creation undermines the human brain.
Teaching creationism is child abuse
You cannot prove creationism, but evolution can be proved.

If one creation story is taught than several should be taught - and fall under the category of myth. I assume this survey has a conservative Christian intention. How very arrogant. Please be aware that there are many religious creation stories - and they are called stories for a reason.
Whoa whoa whoa! Hold up. Almost 48% think BOTH should be taught? No. I'm sorry. You can teach whatever you want to your kid, I really don't care, but not in the walls of a public school where there are kids with MANY different backgrounds who believe in different creation stories or none at all. Evolution doesn't provide a "creation" story, so to say. It only explains how life diversified itself once life was started. It doesn't include how the Big Bang happened or how life started on Earth. Science still doesn't know these answers, but they got their best people working on it! (Haha). Religion needs to stay in religious institutions, and science needs to stay in science class. If kids question the teachers, they need to tell the kid to talk to their religious leader and parents, but this is what is discussed and taught in science classes.
Science should be taught at school, religion should stay at home or at christian schools and such.
Public schools don't teach students about religion.... if so, they would have to teach all students about EVERY religion's beliefs for it to be fair. I would not mind if they taught all religion's beliefs as that allows students to be more well informed about other beliefs but with evolution, that is taught in science class... the 'theory' of creation is not exactly a science.
An invisible man in the sky is for crazy people.
God created our universe not evolutions no way Hosea whould say
Science cannot prove how life began. I believe that however it happened God must have been involved because life on earth is so complex it surely wasn't an accident. Evolution is a fact. DNA changes and causes changes over a very long time within populations. Again the mechanism of DNA being able to change within a group is just to complex to be an accident.
Okay, guys, I think we can pretty much agree that it's usually literal scripturalists who deny evolution. Both science and religion have its extreme ends of the spectrum, but it's safe to say that they do NOT contradict one another. One can have a religion and also accept the theory of evolution. This isn't something much arguable.
religion is not a theory
I believe every child should be presented with data on religious beliefs and evolutionary theories when they become old enough to understand and start forming their own opinions and beliefs. No one person or group of people should have the right to impose their ideas of man's and earth's beginning on another individual. I think for those out there who believe in cold hard fact, that evolution will be their route and for those that live their life by faith, religion will be their choice and there will be those who prefer to take some of both and live their lives with knowledge of both. We should all allow every single living being that right and freedom.
People like PatKat8 show absolutely no understanding of evolution. Over 99.8% of biologists and geologists (those who would be studying evolution) believe creationism has no scientific basis and cannot be viewed as valid to any degree. (http://www.religioustolerance.org/ev publia.htm#) Teaching creationism is a violation of church and state and is scientifically wrong.
If evolution is real - how come we don't see apes turning into humans anymore? Evolution is okay, but only inside a race. Crocs may have been bigger back then, but they were always crocks and didn't evolve into zebras (they did evolve into handbags though ;)...). A horse was always a horse, and dinosaurs are still around, just on a way smaller scale - today we call them lizards. I'm sick and tired of those ridiculous evolution stories. If it is true, I want somebody, anybody, to show me when and where an animal or human being turned into something totally different. A sable tiger only lost the long teeth, because after time and with the extinction of big mammals, it wasn't required anymore to have those teeth. The mammoth lost its hair because after migrating to a much warmer climate, it didn't need to be hairy anymore - now, the mammoth is an elephant. That is the only logical evolution there is for me. Otherwise, every living thing was/is created by God.
The only way I would be okay with the Christian creation myth being taught in public schools is if they taught the creation myths of all world religions.
There is not enough information on the subject
separation of church and state. keep religion out of public schools. the christian religion is only one religion out of many, and a fairly new one at that!
