Three in 10 science teachers believe creationism should be taught in science lessons, according to a new survey.
And more than a third (37%) of primary and secondary teachers in general believe that the subject should be taught alongside evolution and the Big Bang theory.
The Ipsos Mori poll of more than 900 primary and secondary teachers in England and Wales found that while nearly half (47%) believe it should not be taught in science lessons, two thirds (65%) agree that creationism should be discussed in schools....
It is odd, but I am a Christian and a teacher, but I would not want Creationism taught in the schools. Here is the reason why. Evolution tries to explain how life came about, but denies the existence of a creator, they want to explain how but not who. I happen to think that evolution theory is garbage, but it is kind of easy to see the holes and look at that theory and call it garbage. Intellegent Design trys to explain how life came on the Earth and gets a lot of things right, but the proponents of this theory don't give an exact answer as to who the creator was. This will open the doors for all sorts of crackpots to come out of the wood work and some day Tom Cruise may be jumping up on your kid's desk telling him that aliens are the creators. I think design is easy to see in this world, much harder to disprove than evolutionary theory and if not handled correctly could be even more dangerous.
