I think “Creationism” should be taught in schools as much as “Flat Earth” is. The argument that Creationism and Evolution are both theories and deserve equal attention is bullshit. Yep, they’re both theories, and should be judged by the supporting evidence. Verifiable, reproducible, peer-reviewed evidence.

“Macro Evolution” is a “God of the gaps” tactic. Of course no one understands it. There is no evidence describing or supporting it. Just because science doesn’t have an answer doesn’t mean there is (or, must be) a supernatural force. Could there be? What are the odds? Slim I suspect, based on the evidence. Teach that.
Well, that sux. And it’s bullying (a dick move btw). I try to encourage my kids to be critical thinkers; attack the idea, not the person. Ideas exist to be destroyed.
I don’t believe in Science. I accept it as a system for interrogating and organising knowledge. Science is a tool, not a toy. Knowledge needs evidence, belief doesn’t.
Ad Hominem … play the ball.
A rabid believer won’t be swayed. But the fence sitters can be. Win the audience.
