Is it OK to teach evolution in public schools?

Yes it was in response to you.  You seem to be the only one making points revolving around natural facts, rather than those made by man.

KnightDeclan, want to know the only difference between what we just told you about the earth's shape and evolution? The name we call that field of science. Evolution is as much of a process as gravity is. They're both scientific theories, in fact.

Evolution is the name we give the process for organisms changing. The theory describes how these changes take place. That's all evolution really is.

Why would we be jealous of someone whom we have learnt much from?

He does have a better didactic approach than me, at least. But that doesn't change the fact that you've shown absolutely no consideration for anything else up to that point. So please, in the future, independent of who posts something, at least look closer at what they're saying, instead of taking refuge in your bigotry at the slightest contradiction to your beliefs.

Oh believe me, I have tried to learn.  Its just that all that you guys have said was either contradicting my religion, or just plain unbelievable for me.  There are definitely things that you guys won't believe, just out of pure spite.  We're humans, it's what we do.

I don't think its learning when one does not attempt to accept or understand something when it merely infringes upon his original beliefs.

In other words, you only believe whatever you want to, regardless of evidence? You will never re-evaluate your beliefs when new information comes to light?

There are definitely things that you guys won't believe, just out of pure spite.

No there's not. If you can provide me with evidence for something and I can achieve those same results, I'd become open to the idea.

quoting guys and giving out scientific "facts" aren't evidence to me.  I can't prove God, but I was born with faith, so I don't have to see.  If you don't have that faith, then you would only believe by being shown a miracle of some sort, am I right?  We, as humans, need to see to believe.

This is the entire problem right here. You do not accept proof as proof. Thus, we literally have no way to prove anything to you. Please remove your blindfold and earplugs, then we may speak.

I can't prove God, but I was born with faith, so I don't have to see.

And this is why Creationism cannot be taught in science class.

Humans need to see to believe.
You don't have that need.
Therefore, you're not human. What are you?
