Should schools advocating teaching Creationism alongside Evolution have to teach the Hindu creation story too?
Or the creation stories of all major religions for that matter? After all, don't Creationists want children to hear all sides of the controversy and decide for themselves? I know I don't want some biologist nut job shoving Evolution down my kids' throats without hearing what Shintoism has to say about the origins and history of life on Earth.

People who advocate teaching creationism should be removed from positions that let them harm the education of children.

In the UK schools do do that. and not suprisingly the UK has one of the highest proportions of athiests/non believers around

I think that schools shouldn't teach on creation since nobody actually knows for sure. That way the parents can teach the kids what they feel is correct.

No creationism. Just scientifically accepted theories and laws. If parents want kids to know about creationism they should teach them themselves.

They should spend every day learning the thousands of different creation stories, just in case any religious nutter who want's to mess with them behind their parents back misses out on the opportunity

I don't know how it is in the rest of the world but here in Sweden they don't allow children to learn about theories that are not internationally and scientifically accepted.

I studied this in College. I don't know why people feel the need to subject all children to Creationism when they likely get that education at church and study groups anyway. It's clearly just another method to try and force Creationism down the throats of others in the school system. This recent dogmatic approach that... More

I think it would depend on the community where the schools were. Some communities have different cultures. The important thing here, is to allow students to Think and Decide for Themselves what is true or not true for each of them...
