It's only two minutes long.
What do you think? Should schools really teach the controversy? And if you think yes, which controversies should be taught? Can my creation story be taught alongside yours?

The problem with not teaching something just because its religious is that you assume none of the religious information/history is backed by scientific research. I think anything backed by anthropologists, archaeologists and other scientific research should be taught in schools regardless of its religious or non-religious base. To think otherwise is close minded and will keep you from the truth, no matter what that is.

Some religious information should be taught in history class because religion is an important part of world history. It helps us understand many cultures around the world.
I teach my children my own religious beliefs at home, I don't need the school to, I feel school should be for academics, unless you are in a private school.

I am all for teaching children about religion, in say a world religion class, or even a history class. But it does not belong in the science class room
I agree religion is more about faith then science. Any science connection you want to teach your children, such as intelligent design, should be taught in maybe in philosophy class, at home or at a private religious school.
