Re: The Bible
I really think you should attend a church service or too. A real, bible teaching, God fearing church. Not one that gets in your face, a good church. You seem pretty confident in your beliefs, so you shouldn't be too challenged. Right? You might find it interesting. In the meantime, I am going to pray for you. I will pray that God will open your heart to his wonderful grace and love he is offering. I have to go to work now. Take care my friend.

I did for years, that's why I am an atheist

Why teach about talking snakes? Why not just be honest about it and stick to the basics? An intelligent being of force created life. Supported by(theory theory theory). Pretty basic stuff really.

what theory theory theory?¿

No, both. What's wrong with that. The students deserve to know ALL beliefs about their existence don't they. Besides aren't we supposed to be teaching tolerance and diversity? Shouldn't Christianity fit in there somewhere?

fine then we must also include buddhism, hinduism, shinto, confucianism,
islam, judaism, wiccan, + roman, greek, babylonian, egyptian, norse, etc, mythologies in science classes to give the students a well rounded education. DUHHHHHHH!

Re: looking for some support to your assertions
I'm going to throw a bone here, and it isn't out of generosity. The scientific educational practices do vary geographically. So while I may recite teaching practices relative to our own region, they would most likely differ from your own.

Why would the big bang theory(unmeasurable by current scientific method) make it's way into school curriculum's whilst creation would not?

Since when is the concept of a force or source of energy unworthy of scientific consideration? It would seem as though the big bang theory gets it's props by personal status while creation gets repelled by fear. Whatever the case, these aspect of scientific education are bound by a biased and closed minded system.

Down the intelligent life beyond our own and in with illogical theories to circumvent the implications of the first rule.

The Big bang is a scientific theory based on evidence ie background radiation

creationism is not a scientific theory, it is a belief based on faith and therefore not science.

are you serious? There is ONE version of Christianity. It's contained in the Bible. It is really simple. God Created the earth. That's all I'm talking about. This thread is about ID, not Math, History, etc. Am I right? So, with regards to which version of Christianity, it should be obvious.

oh really how about:

Baptist, Congregationalist, Unitarian, Lutheran, Anglican, Catholic, Orthodox, etc.

Re: New member is confused
Taking Genesis as myth leaves the entire Bible open to personal interpretation.

So what is wrong with that, the Bible has been personally interpreted for centuries.
