I don't see why we need the schools going into "The Beginning" in any form. Do we know for a fact there was a primordial ooze? Do we know for a fact that the big bang happened?
You know what we should teach our kids, that we don't know enough about something to say with any certainty how it all began. We should explain that the universe is vast and only a very small portion of it has even been seen, let alone understood. Its okay to admit we don't know everything, and that in the end, everyone has to decide for themselves based on the evidence they see around them.
I am a believer in God, but that doesn't mean I don't believe in evolution. I know things evolve, but that doesn't mean I have agree with the logic that we all evolved from one singular point. The evidence pointing to that is extremely unclear, and in my opinion believing 100% that we all evolved from a singular point is a belief based on faith and a logical pattern. I believe what I believe based on faith and a logical pattern as well, so why all the animosity all the time from both sides?
Look, truth is, if you collected all the knowledge from the mind of every human, living and deceased, and put it together, we would still know so little about the going ons of our universe that its laughable.
So to the theists here, you have faith, that's great, just because someone else has faith in something different doesn't make them bad or evil.
To the atheists here, you don't know everything, just because you can make a logical leap doesn't make you better than anyone else. Theists are not "dumb, spaghetti monster followers" they are just people who have followed a different path. What they believe does not hurt you, so knock off your bashing.
