I never understand what the controversey is over evolution. I mean yeah it’s evolution or creationism but what can creationism mean?
Leaving aside the immaterial soul, creationists will believe we are material also and that physical stuff had to come together somehow. Well what actually are they arguing happened? What is the alternative story supposed to be?
To me, it’s even simpler than that. Evolutionary theory is science. Creationism is not science. Therefore, it has no place being taught in a science classroom.
If they want to teach about it an a comparative religion class, I have no quarrel with that. To includes some creation myths and not others without a good reason would constitute a controversy. Excluding a creation myth from science class is no controversy.
