Which version of creationism? There are over 1000


There is no better love between 2 people than mutual respect for each other WT Young, 2002

Who gave anyone the authority to call me an authority on anything. WT Young, 1969

Since Evolution is only ~90% correct it should be thrown out and replaced by Creation which has even a lower % of correctness. W T Young, 2008

let the people through the legislature decide. Its their right.

So if people through the legislature decided that murder was acceptable, you would run with it? Just because people accept an idea doesn't make it truth. Truth requires evidence, give me some evidence for any of the ~1000 creation stories. Science is not based on people's beliefs, it is based on physical not hearsay evidence.

Truth first and peoples right to govern themselves and creationism is sure to prevail.

If there is truth first, the creationism would not prevail, since there is no truth in creationism,. Myths are not truth. Creationism is a myth.
Just a bronze aged story, first told by people who knew no truth.

What morality? War, hate, prejudice?

you need better answers.

Yes better answers, that is what science is for, to get better answers than human superstition, and imaginary occurrences, and evidenceless belief. Just, because a majority of people believe in something doesn't make it true. And worse, when evidence shows their beliefs to be wrong, they throw out the evidence, rather than changing their dogmatic nonsense.

Re: Lesson planning
Creationism is persuasive to enough or they think its close enough to be a viable alternative.

Where is the testable evidence? To be a viable alternative, there would have to be some viable evidence to which there has never been any found. 2000 to 4000 year old myths are not viable evidence.

Creationism is censored by law.

No, creationism is not censored by law. If a course called Creationism was put forth, it would be legitimate. What is not legitimate is wanting creationism is a biology class, since it is not evidence based.
The same rational is why alchemy is not taught in chemistry classes or astrology is not taught in astronomy classes, the fact they aren't evidence based.

Your still trying to ban creationism because you or your side has decided its not true.

No, simply since it has no evidence to back it up. Show some real evidence and it could then be taught.

It would be like teaching , in a math class that pi = 3.

As of now the legislature can not put creationism in subjects where origins are discussed.

Like what? What type of origins?
