Whoa, this is spinning out of control.
The only reason I care about this issue is because school boards in some backwards locations are actually pushing non-scientific theories as science upon helpless school children who don't know the difference.
Religion is a personal issue, and it's not really the subject of this debate. The origin of species as a factual matter, and the teaching of real science is the issue. Religion has no place in science, and science doesn't trump religion. That's why they've been kept separate all these years, and why they should stay that way. We are undermining the credibility of future generations of Americans by teaching them junk science that is really religion in a thin disguise. Real Universities, research institutes, pharmeceutical companies, and anyone else that hires scientists are going to scoff at students who've been taught creationism in place of science.
Personal beliefs and "greater truths" are the proper domain of religion. Science is about hard, cold facts. They are not substitutes for one another.
