for me a "transitional fossil" is a fossil that's part say fish and part frog.
How much fish and how much frog? Along that line of development we have such varying delights as Achoania, Osteolepis, Styloichthys, Eusthenopteron, Panderichthys, Crassigyrinus, Tiktaalik, Ichthyostega, Acanthostega, and Triadobachtratus. Take your pick.
I would only say that I wouldn't change anything any more than is now being done except I confess that I would emphasize Christian religion over the other ones...even though students should be exposed to what the other ones believe.
If your religion is a "true" religion, and the other religions aren't, why should it require an advantage in emphasis over the others? Surely you believe that it has an inate advantage anyway.
I don't even care to address the question of where it came from but when the flood waters receded, where did they go?
The only theory that matches the evidence is that the waters came from one person's imagination, and went into the imaginations of hundreds of millions of others, where it remains, drowning out reason, and swamping intelligent thought.
This also explains, in passing, why young earth creationists behave as if they have water on the brain, a condition that can lead to serious mental disabilities, including the constant repetition of the phrase "lots of water did it" when explaining just about every geological phenomenon on earth, not to mention all the fossils.

Note my early interest in theories of the imagination.
*Actually, that's commendable, all things considered.
