Since all beliefs are on equal footing, how about teaching every other religious belief as well, why just creationism (I know the answer is obvious)? Seems silly to state the apparent equality of conflicting beliefs and then not open the door to every other fable man has believed over the millennia's.
This blatant double standard doesn't make sense.
Science does make sense, and doesn't kid itself when there is something we are yet to understand. Hilariously the creationists 'god of the gaps' continues to disappear as the veil of ignorance is slowly pulled away revealing the awesomeness of our 'place', and at the same time, diminishing our universal significance within the cosmos, this is the threat to religious fables the world over, and the reason why the veil of understanding must be halted before there's nothing left for their deity to be revered for.
To a peasant religion is everything,
To a Leader, religion is a tool,
To me, religion is a scourge that will claim many more millions of lives before we accept its fruitless futility and our place in the cosmos as fact and not the mere whim of an ancient man made fairy tail of sun gods and nonsensical sacrifice.
