Rule #191: Evolution vs creationism

"The process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms. The gradual development of something,  from a simple to a more complex form."
Hmmmm... sounds reasonable. I certainly can't disprove it.


the doctrine that God creates out of nothing a new human soul for each individual born. 
Hmmmmm. Sounds a little weak.

 Here's the truth. I don't know. You don't know. Neither does your teacher, friends, parents, ministers, priests or anyone you've ever met or anyone who exists on the planet. The only thing I do know is we need to give everyone equal amounts of information to support both arguments at an early age. I don't think we should put much emphasis on the topic in school at all. I rank it right up there with space exploration. Who gives a shit what's a billion miles up in space? Who gives a shit where we came from? Would it be interesting to find out? yes. Helpful? Doubt it. I think we need to focus on problems in our own place and time before we spend billions on things that don't matter in a galaxy far far away. Regardless, if we're going to teach or promote any kind of religion or creationism in school, we need to give equal billing to the evolution theory to give kids a fair chance to make an educated choice. Instead of teaching them the great argument I get when I debate with a supporter of creationism... "The bible says so".

In the new world, evolution and creationism will be taught equally in the schools with a focus on teaching neither.
