To teach creationism in schools, gives creationism (or ID) to much credit.

The idea that there is a clear choice between evolution and creationism is a silly bible-centric opinion. If you choose to reject science you can, but that does not make your opinion scientifically correct.

There is one scientific theory to explain how life got the way it is, and thats evolution. Evolution is a law, and should be treated like all other laws such as "gravity" and "electromagnetism". We do not tell students "ok here is gravity but you don't have to believe that, it might be true that jesus pushes us to the earth.

Why learn creationism and not other religious beliefs about how the world was created. Norse Legends? Greek Legends? Sciencetology? Creationism is at the same level of mythology.
