The same issue arises whenever they want to post the Ten Commandments in classroom. Because of the different ways you can combine or split what's in those verses, the Jews, Catholics, and Protestants all have different versions. So which version is the government supposed to choose and hence endorse that particular religion? Why the Protestant one, of course, though most people advocating it will shy away from discussion when they learn about the different versions.

In a letter, the late Dr. Henry Morris of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) informed me that the "evolution model" is not just "atheistic evolution", but also includes "most of the world's religions, both ancient and modern." Therefore, I'm sure that he would have answered that his own version would be taught, of course, because all the rest are part of the "evolution model."

Yes, it is a BS answer. But I don't doubt that he actually believed it.

I worked closely for an extended period of time with a PhD Chemistry. I am sure that I will get his religious affiliation wrong, since it was either United Church of Christ or ... I'm not sure what. But he was very religious.

Here is what he told me. No chemist in any lab anywhere in the world could ever cause a reaction to occur that would not be able to occur naturally.

Is that any help?
