Is it OK to teach evolution in public schools?

Evolution says 'poof' the earth came, perfectly formed globe, from an explosion. 

Nope.

Start of the universe: explained by the big bang theory.

Formation of planets: astrophysics in relation to the big bang.

How did life start: explained by the theory of abiogenesis.

How does life behave/evolve: explained by the theory of evolution.

The theory of evolution takes the existence of life as granted. The theory of evolution is only about how life behaves once it exists. It has nothing to do with its origins.

The theory of abiogenesis tries to explain how organic life started from anorganic molecules. This is another matter altogether.

Agree now that, if not abiogenesis, at least evolution should be taught?

I mean where in your sentence did you mean science? With your statement alone..it makes absolutely no sense..lest you are saying that you either meant to place it somewhere in a sentence or a sentence should have science instead of another word.

Don't try to ****ing abase me.

I know what you mean, although that is not really an answer to any previous post.
So here we are again with the deceitful god argument. Science is describing the world, based on observed facts; the theory of evolution is only so called because it is a theory trying to explain the evolution we do observe. The theory of gravity is only so called because it tries to explain the gravity we do observe. Medicaments can only be found thanks to chemistry, biology, and usually also processes involving evolution (bacterial resistances etc..).

So basically, everything just looks like what science describes. So god is actually a really mean trickster and a decceiver. Wait, don't you people normally say that Satan put fossils there to deceive us? Now it turns out it was god. A Hurra for consistency!

My teachers all said evolution is bad

My teachers openly reinforced belief in leprechauns and other mythical things. Just because a teacher says it doesn't make it true.

perfectly formed globe

You realize the earth isn't a perfect sphere, right?

Catholicism says 'poof' a supreme being created it in perfect form.

Your own statement about a perfectly spherical earth is enough to demonstrate that as false.

What do you mean "unnaturally round"? You act like that isn't how it is supposed to be.
The fact that it is round is natural.

Now..if you mean the fact that it isn't a perfect sphere is what makes it perfect..then that makes absolutely no sense..as it not being a perfect sphere eliminates its chance at perfection.

so what shape is it, cubic?

/facepalm
No..but it is by no means a "perfectly formed globe"..since it isn't a perfect sphere

It is more of an oblate spheroid shaped potato shape. Even rain drops are closer to the perfect sphere, and you know why? Physics.
