Consider This...Both sides belong in our textbooks

The debate over evolution vs. creationism is once again heating up in Austin. Specifically, whether or not textbooks should include facts about creationism.

Both ideas have been debated since Darwin first published his theory over 150 years ago, and evolution is the only one currently taught in Texas classrooms.

They are both based on facts and both come with bias and assumptions.

But consider this:

I am not going to argue the merits of why I believe God created the earth and man in it. The majority of people already believe that.

This is not a debate of science vs. religion. This debate is about what are we going to teach our children in public schools. The theory of evolution is already in the textbooks. Creationism is widely accepted across the globe. It's time the public school system in Texas accept that and include it in the classroom.
