Please let me know *which* subject this topic be covered in?
Probably Incoherent Philosophical Masturbation 101. Seriously, no one who honestly seeks to understand either science or religion would do so by pitting them one against the other. You merely risk teaching the children that evolution is somehow a religious concept, and that religion is in some way a science, neither of which are remotely true.
We also look at issues such as abortion and when does life begin ... this is a scientific question which has a bearing on what people believe to be right.
Believe all they want; no amount of thinking makes an apple of an orange.
Let me ask you, what religions do you specifically cover in your class?
