I am thinking more about the censorship of creationism in American institutions based on the church/state issue thing.

I, as a teacher, am thinking more about the censorship of creationism in American schools based on the fact/fiction issue thing. We tend to try and censor out the fiction from science.

If the majority said creationism should not be taught then it shouldn't.

Why is that? Science is the investigation of what is true, not what is popular opinion. When you have a leak in your roof do you canvas your neighborhood for popular opinion on how to fix it or call a professional roofer?

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

Boo freaking hoo.


What other subjects are banned?

The things we now know aren't true. As I explained, this isn't a church/state issue as much as a fact/fiction issue. To paraphrase Sagan, in science your preferences do not matter.
