Should creationism be in schools?

Science vs religion.

Science, the knowledge of the future today.

Science is one of the most important aspects to this world and we need scientific literate kids in this day and age. Some people though don’t have a idea what actual science is. There are people who think that creationism is actual science I’m sorry but thats not true and I’m going to tell you why.
Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children

Many creationist like to claim that it's teaching the controversy, but what they fail to realize is that evolution is not just a theory.

  • A theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, which is testable and confirmed through observation.
  • Evolution is not “just a theory”, much like the theory of gravity the theory of evolution is a scientific fact.
  • The evidence is in the museums, just look at the fossil record.

They like to claim that creationism is actual science.

  • you can’t observe it, nor can you test it. Science is about the natural world, and we know that creationism isn't the natural world.
  • Creationism is merely a idea thought around a book from over 2,000 years ago.

Earths age

Creationists claim their beliefs are real science, however their beliefs are unobservable and untestable thus by definition creationism isn't a science. There is a common belief among creationists that the Earth was created 6,000 or so years ago which orbits around their book. All scientific tests point to the Earth being 4.5 billion years old. It could be argued that some methods of dating things like carbon dating aren't accurate, but there are far more accurate tests out there such as Dendrochronology, Thermoluminescence dating, optical dating, amino acid dating, and potassium-argon dating. Which all correspondingly produce the same answer to the question "how old is the Earth?" According to modern day dendrochronolgy there are trees out dating the creations book which should be impossible according to their beliefs. Children shouldn't be taught disproven ideas. Creationism contradicts modern day science and shouldn't be taught.

Shoul we really teach the controversy?

Because, honestly teaching kids this isn’t good, it is hurting their brains. There was a experiment taken that kids who believed in the bible, and taught it was real had a harder to determine what is real, and what is fake. What we need to teach our kids is critical thinking, and what actual science we have. We need to teach them to question everything. Whether it’s science or not. If we do not have kids that are scientifically literate the world as we know it won’t get better. Our kids are the future of the world, it’s time to stop trusting the supernatural and trust in reality. Evolution should be taught in school not creationism.

Don't let creationists ruin you're children's minds.

Don't let creationism be taught in school, we need to teach real science. we need to teach our most scientific theories, that are widely accepted.

Ask me questions! Anything you're mind is wondering.
