...all the other religions of the world, and their view on the creation of the universe must be taught as well. However this is for philosophy and theology and is not to be taught along side evolution in science class. Yes, evolution should be taught as a theory, but there is scientific evidence that supports the theory.

Again, the evidence for creationism doesn't hold up. If it did, you would have a majority of scientists bringing up evidence for it. A majority would hold up the theory of creationism as the model that future findings would support. Yet, the evidence that scientists continue to find, fits into the theory of evolution.

What we see attempts by young earth creationists to poke holes in the theory of evolution. That's fine, there are holes in the theory of evolution and scientists are willing to admit this. However, more and more evidence comes out that fits into the theory of evolution (and this is after years of scrutiny by scientific peers) but I see no independent confirmation of facts that support creationism. Poking holes in the theory of evolution doesn't mean that creationism holds true.

"Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense."
