Consider 'the parable of the candle':
Should old age dates be taught as fact in the science classroom? Teaching old age dates as fact is ignorant of alternate logical and even scientific interpretations of radiometric dating results, considering the parable of the candle.
I understand that there are many different beliefs out there about origins and they can't all be taught in science (partially as some are unscientific), so may i suggest we just don't teach any viewpoints in school etc., then if people want to find out what the origins of man and the universe are they can teach themselves at home etc. thus come to a more unbias approach to a conclusion on the matter. That way it won't seem as if teaching only evolution is indoctrination. Furthermore, "It is the height of Bigotry to have only one theory of origins taught in our schools" (Clarence Darrow, see http://www.baptistpillar.com/bd0354.htm - although this quote is often refuted, it is still at the height of bigotry).
What do you think? Isn't that a fair solution?
