I've been thinking about Creationism being taught in schools

I've concluded Intelligent Design should not be taught in Biology classes, because biology seems to have as its foundation Evolution. Maybe though in Physics classes Intelligent Design should be taught. For more on this read this LC article.
Peace,
Chris

I think what would solve all these sorts of problems is if they would just start teaching philosophy in K-12 schools again. That way these sorts of issues could be covered, and kids could think it out on their own. In keeping with that sort of paradigm, science classes could be taught in a way that is very "field specific;" they could emphasise that "this is what science believes" rather than stating things as "this is truth" which would more properly belong to the questions of philosophy and not science.

I'd agree, philosphy would should be taught in K-12. I sat in on a Theory of Knowlege class in highschool that only IB students were allowed in. I was jealous.
