Nearly a third of teachers believe that the theories of creationism and intelligent design should be given the same status as evolution in the classroom, according to a survey. However, 50 per cent disagreed.
Of the 1,200 questioned, 53 per cent thought that creationism should not be taught in science lessons, while 29 per cent thought it should. However, 88 per cent agreed that if pupils raised the issue in a science lesson, they should be allowed to discuss it.
Creationism is based on a literal interpretation of scripture as an explanation for the origins of life. Intelligent design is a more modern version which says that life is so complex it cannot be explained solely by evolution. National curriculum guidelines state that creationism has no place in science lessons. The Rev Professor Michael Reiss, a biologist and Royal Society director of education, provoked a furore last year by calling...
I'm amazed (altough I shouldn't be),that the fact that God created the univiverse is now called "the theory of creation". While the lie of evolution is stated in print as if it were fact. Even so Lord come quickly!
Let the world do as they do. A Christian is to be taught at home. But todays Christians have a form of godliness but deny the power there of. Pastors' even send their children to public schools. Marriage license,501c3 no longer have Christ as the head of their church. They have to obey their new leader even if they are ungodly or they will be locked up or worse what will happen to their money. First thing Jesus said was beware of deception in the church 2,000 yrs ago and we still do not heed to His warning.Turn or burn. Read your Bible, God warns us. Go to www.preachingfreedom, www.radioliberty.com, and listen to Pastor Edward Watson on semonaudio.com Come out from amongst them and be ye separate saith the Lord, amen!

Did you misstype? (saddly I've done that more times than I can count myself)
Genuine Born Again of the Holy Ghost Christians who believe in the literal account of 6 days in Genesis cannot loose in standing for what God Himself (who cannot lie btw) has written for us in Scripture. True we may not convince rebellious reprobates but they will know the truth in the day of judgment and will not have the excuse Bible Believing Christians were not telling them will they.
For that matter even non-Christians such as Ben Stein believes that God is our Creator (NOT our evolver) because He is.
So that you will know, to fight evolution is to fight God, we can not win.
2 Thessalonians 2:11
International Standard Version For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie.
New American Standard Bible For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false
King James Bible And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
And so that you know where I am coming from, I have fought many a battle on the topic of evolution, but even when they cannot disagree with what I have stated, they will still always believe in evolution.
2 Thessalonians 2, 2-4 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
We should plead with God that these up and coming generations of children receive the truth, and are not deceived by people who "worship and serve the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen"
My sympathy for the anti-creationist continues to increase. I cannot imagine living without foundation or reference or standard. Groping for something to stand on. Everything I 'know and believe' coming out of a void or vacuum. Only knowing that if there is more than one way to the truth... there is no way. Frightful! Gratitude seems too weak a word to describe what our posture should be for the privilege of receiving the revelation of God in Christ Jesus. Pity too weak a word for those who haven't received it.
As a former atheist I can understand why unbelievers reject creationism, because they don't want to entertain it. What I can't get my head round is why they accept the impossible theory of evolution instead. The fossil record shows that it didn't happen, the modern science of genetics shows that it couldn't happen, so how do intelligent, thinking people continue to be taken in
At the local public library where I live, as opposed to the MAIN public library in another county, there are over 100 holds on Ben Stein's, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, on I think 4 DVD's and I think the library is going to purchase more.
Along with Kent Hovind's debates on google video, perhaps more and more people are coming around. Perhaps as far as this issue is concerned, maybe we have "passed" the "tipping point" (Malcolm Gladwell) and evolution may be revealed as the fairy tale it really is--one with a diabolical purpose and no moral lesson.
