To liven up the debate some.

A little earlier I had a short discussion about "Intelligent Design" being taught in our schools. Just to clarify, I believe in God and that he created all things. However, I don't think that we should teach that as fact. There are no facts to prove or disprove the existance of God. Then on a purely logistical sense, whose Creationism would we teach? Baptist, Mormon, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu? I don't think it is possible to teach Creationism without a certain religious skew. Afterall, not all creation stories are even based on the Bible. If these things are to be taught, it should be in it's own class.
