Should students be educated on logical fallacies and illogical statements etc BEFORE being exposed to the whole evolution/creation debate?

It seems like more and more people are buying into strawmen, argument from incredulity, argument of ignorance, probability, and flat out lies than ever before...

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Fixed typo and added "?" in topic title. Changed "s" to "S" at sentence 1 beginning and fixed some typos/spelling errors. Added the "It" to the begining of the second sentence.
