For school I have taught them both and one is commonly believed by one by the science community and one by the religious one.

I believe in Evolution through Creation so I teach both.

 I provide the information for both & let them decide what they think is right to believe.

Haven't gone into it outright yet but will. Evolution will be taught as science & creation will be taught as a belief system that is held by some but has no scientific evidence. They will not be taught together under the science subject unless they ask & want to discuss.

I've taught the concept of both, but i'm a subscriber of evolution. So i teach creationism more as a theory that some people believe, and why they believe it.

You forgot the Ancient Alien theory! 

What?  With millions of other stars you can't say it's impossible that ancient aliens came here and did who knows what!  hehehehe

I teach all theories.  If they can prove it's wrong, then good for them.  Micro Evolution is a fact.  Macro Evolution is a theory.

There is no difference between micro & macro evolution but the amount of time you've been studying an organism. In fact they aren't even scientific terms. They are terms made up by creationists to say that some evolution is possible & some is not.

We teach Creation as a theory that we disagree with - we also teach *why*.

We teach Theistic Evolution as our belief. We teach that there is no reason science and faith have to work against eachother.

We teach Creation because that's what we believe. I run through evolution, but show them dvd's why it is we don't believe in it. (Edit, yes, we do believe in Micro evolution though, that can be proven, but we don't do macro evolution.)
