Re: Update
"But ask yourself this question. How would it help your child to understand science if someone approaches her with the platypus example as proof of creationism and you can't refute it?"
I think the exsistance of the platypus is proof enough that there is no God...I mean look at it.

My husband would argue the opposite, he thinks it was God's idea of a joke. I don't agree, its just funny how people have different opinions based on the same reasons.

Re: Update
I am coming to the conclusion that the average adult who has undergone 12 years of schooling either never understood, or did not retain enough of what they learned, to be able to teach someone else.

Therefore all future children should learn only from 'professionals' so that they can also go on to forget or be ignorant of most subjects by the time they are adults. :)
