quote:I'm not a religous zealot, I don't think religion should be taught in the science class (but creation science should). Of course religion would only be taught in literature, philosophy, art, and music, since religion basically creationed those subjects. You can't teach art without the Sistine Chapel.
There is no such thing as creation science. Those two words are totally incompatible.
In my country kids are taught their religion in school. The unbelievers study philosophy. There´s been a lot of discussion in here whether teaching religion should be stopped and replaced with something akin to comparative religions studies.
I´m a bit torn - OTOH it would be better than the current system but then again it would be so nice if there were no religions...and thus no need to spend time in teaching and studying those. In reality it is wise to know a thing or two about every religion so that when you encounter a person you don´t deliberately insult them
