My child's day-care has a missionary that teaches pre-school. It is religious-based and includes bible study and songs. However, she also teaches science and does not teach that everything sprung up overnight; but that Genesis lasted seven of God's days not ours. Interesting.

I agree schools shouldnt teach it because its clearly unconstitutional and unsubstanciated. It sets a bad example to students when a teacher cant back up what they teach. Besides, churches are free, theyre practitioners where teachers are expected to become well versed? I gathered lots of good stuff from religions in my ongoing search, but no way could I teach it. Its not physical. Its purely intuitive. In my opinion religeon is not in the least contradictory to evolution facts. But religeon, or its present misuse, is antagonistic to scientific reason. Religious leaders claiming that 'well ok then, it was BABY dinosaurs that got put on the ark'. I'd take my kid right outta that school.

Without religion society cannot survive. When did civilisation come into existence? Yes exactly when religion came into existence.

should mention creationism. It's a longstanding belief which should be addressed on the grounds of scientific verifiability, not on emotional grounds of constitutionality or religious tolerance.
