The Bill Nye/Ken Ham Creation Debate

Reference THIS article/event.

Here's what I think:

Scientists and others should ABSOLUTELY NOT be required (or allowed) to go into churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship to teach the theory of evolution as some form of counter-religious dogma, because science is no substitute for religious faith.

Religious folks of any and all stripes should ABSOLUTELY NOT be required (or allowed) to go into public schools and teach their views of creation as being some form of science, because science relies of facts but religion relies on faith.


We can in fact have religion taught in places of worship and science taught in places of learning.  One need not threaten the other, despite the show put on by Mr Nye and Mr Ham.
