"When you are teaching science, teach science. Evolution is science. When you are teaching religion, teach religion. Creationism is religion."
Horsesh*t. Evolution is a belief system that relies on science for support. Evolution does not = science. Science supports elements of religion as much as it supports other concepts.
Science does not support creationism nearly as much as it supports evolution. There's very, very little about creationism that is supported by science. (I didn't say religion, I said creationism) Which is why I don't think creationism should be taught when teaching science.
Again, if you want to mention that this is a concept many people believe when you are teaching evolution in science class, then ok. But it shouldn't be discussed as if it has the same validity.
