Schools encouraging students to speculate evolution

In 7 States, public schools have been introducing programs that require Special Creation to be taught beside Evolution. Schools are also encouraging students to speculate evolution and to try to find flaws with the theory.

Wow Congress, how much more biased can you get? Why not Islam? Or Aztec?

Thank god though. In 2009, all states have abandoned the program except Louisiana. In science, 95% of scientists in general and 99.9(insert digit over 6 here)% of biologists believe the theory of evolution.

Discuss.

This absolutely ridiculous. If schools want kids to speculate evolution, they should also let them speculate religious beliefs as well.

Well, it can be taught. I'm just opposed to the idea.

Are you saying that you don't think you're a descendant of monkeys?

Well one flaw in this post is that Islam's theory on creation is the same as Christianity, and Judaism. Islam includes the Old and New Testament and the Quaran.

You know what good came out of this? The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Its full of the Lulz.

I think evolving from Monkeys is just as ridiculous as a women being made from a rib of a man, and therefore creating 'us' (meaning were all brother and sisters...?)

I don't think that evolution should be the only thing to be taught, because it is NOT a fact. You can make the arguement of seperation of church and state. But i also don't believe that a not proven theory should be the only thing that is shoved down the throats of todays youth.
Just go over all them briefly. Problem Solved. Therefore your not trying to convert anyone into a religion, or denying there right to know what a religious belief is.
