It nurtures critical thinking skills.

I think creationsm deserves mention but i dont think it warrants much time and attention.
I think intelligent design deserves more time but the focus should be on evolution.

Though I mean what can you really teach? "Some people believe god created the world, the end". Seems like it would be a thin class.

i believe God created the world but not in the biblical sense. I think you can say a little more but more than about 10-15 mins would be all that is appropriate for a public school unless it's a class about religion.

Do you mind me asking what it is that you believe?



My wife considered herself Christian, but believed in the "watchmaker" theory - god made the world, set it in motion, then left it alone.

Its nowhere near the biggest religion in the world ... Also who are you to say that my kids should have to learn YOUR creation theory in school when my religion isn't covered

I will not be able to articulate in well and i'm too lazy to google and do a cut and paste from someone who believes something similar to me BUT, in a few words:
I believe that that our universe was designed and guided. Natural selection was/is natural but in some cases it was/is guided.
