Creationism is a scientific theory?

(laughing)

OK, then. I'll support that idea the day they introduce the Church of the SubGenius and the Jedi Force to the national R. E. curriculum.

Umm... seperation of church and state? Creationism is clearly religiously biased thus it can't be taught (at least in the US). That's not to say that teachers can't say there is another theory, they just can get into details.

Creationism is only one of the many theories that deals with how our universe was created if it cannot be scientifically prove than it should not be taught. Separation of church and state is the stupidest law ever made our nation was founded on the principles of Christianity thats the reason people came to America in the first place so they wouldnt be persecuted for believing in God. And if you do your research Christianity is historically proven so maybe you should do some research before you shoot down a religion

ok first they escaped religious persecution from another religion. seperation of church and state is a wonderful idea, allowing for the existence of a pluralistic society. and the nation was not found on the principles of christianity; it was made on the basis that it is nothing like the monarchy which they revolted against and on the ideas of many philosophers including john locke who believed that the government requires the consent of the governed and that if ever the government fails to uphold its half of the social contract then the people have the right to overturn the government in hopes of building a better one. nothing in the constitution is christianity-like.

christianity is historically proven? elaborate.

and i am in no way shooting down a religion. just getting facts straight.

to below:haha beat you LOL jk see you in the staff lounge.

How is Christianity historically proven?

Also, our nation was not founded so they wouldn't be persecuted for believing in God, it was founded to rebel against the British' sudden grasp on the colonies. The colonies were founded for religious freedom, trade opportunities, and social dominance. Of course there may be other things, but those were the basics.

Also the religious freedom thing is pure bullshit. They weren't persecuted for believing in God, they were persecuted for how they chose to believe in God. The Puritans and Protestants were going against the authority of the Church and thus were attacked for that. Not because they believed in God. They were disgusted with the way the Church had become corrupted with greed.

Also, if you read literature from the time, you would understand the dramatic change in American culture after independence. The original religions that had taken hold there went under drastic change. For example, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne was a complete social commentary about Puritan lifestyles. It completely mocked its principles and was regarded as a great work of art.

Hell, the baptists were also ones who wanted the separation of church and state which dated back to the 1600s with key figures like John Smyth. Also, Jefferson coined the word in a letter to them in the early 1800s that created this distinction. This was also addressed in the First Amendment in the late 1700s. The beginnings of the nation actually made the distinction quite early on.

Maybe you should stop sounding like such a smart ass before you defend your religion.

That is only one site of a story from the bible being historically proven like i said do your research you will find more than i can give you at the moment and if you don't believe in it then what evidence do you have that supports your theory there is more historically proven facts about the bible than any other religion.

there maybe somethings about the bible that actually happened and can be historically proven. i dont doubt that. but that the universe and world was created in a mere seven days..im going to need a little more convincing.

at least the theories of evolutions were based on the scientific method and we can work our way eventually to how it all began. there was the primodial soup theory that was recreated which built the bulding blocks for life on the planet. im sorry id rather rely on a feasible method to arguing on things than just blind faith. not there is anything wrong with blind faith..
