    My problem is that, usually, evolution is taught as absolute fact and creation as myth. That's worse than teaching creationism and evolution on the same level, because you're teaching falsehoods (evolution as absolute fact) and closed-mindedness (creation as myth).

    What they really should do is teach evolution as the standard way of envisioning how this all happened, then add "but we aren't entirely sure" and "we don't know what caused it all to happen in the first place." You don't even have to mention intelligent design, just don't teach that it's unreasonable.
    • That's about the most reasonable way I've ever heard of looking at it. Respect for alternative viewpoints. Cool.
