Evolution should be thrown out of schools?

Yes

VS.

No

First of all, it isn't even above 85% proven. I believe schools should teach things that are proven and can be quantifiably explained (an equation). I totally support the teaching of The Big Bang since it has been quantified and proven. Evolution though not fully proven also has had many controversies such as scientists fabricating evidence. Just saying, this might be a reason why. Science should be taught with MATH and scientific SYMBOLS. No matter what it is, as long as an equation fits in it its ok! My opinion of course.

Then you should be on my side, because in school, kids are only told half the story and end up brainwashed like you.

Also evolution is supposed to be banned from teaching in Texas and 10 other states by 2030 by their states constitution and replace it with the literal reading of the book of genesis do you support that? Also by 2030 3/4 of Americans and 3/5 of Europeans will support evolution being banned what would you do when it happens?

I highly doubt it, and if so, then I lose hope in humanity.

You have statistics to back that up? If that really is the case I'm going to have to cry over ignorance taking us over.

If it turned out that evolution really started to become so unpopular that doesn't mean anything on whether or not it is valid. Truth isn't a democracy, truth will be whether we believe in the truth or not.

clarify for me, because in your original argument it was put as in favor of throwing out evolution, but sometimes when people make an argument they don't pay attention to that. If you are on the side of the argument of it being thrown out then my refutation is called for, if you are not for evolution being thrown out of schools, then I apologize for the misunderstanding (though in the future you might want to pay attention to that).

EDIT: I came back to this debate and thought this argument was a reply to me, my bad. ignore.

where? Kansas? lol .

Side: Yes

While it is just a theory,there is scientific proof of evolution. Its hard to say however wether I belive in evolution or not however, I do think evolution should be taught because alot of non-theists belive in it and there is scientific proof for it.I am not one of those ignorant christians.

I prefer to use the words evidence for instead of proof of but I agree with what you said.

I never understood religious people's problems with evolution either because they could so easily argue that no matter how things came to be or evolved over time- "God" gets the credit.

I guess that some of the ones who take the Bible word for word can't see that there's room for both (creation and evolution) but That's how I have reconciled the two for myself.

Side: Yes

Thats kinda what I believe as well

Side: No

A big reason to why some religious try to deny the reality of evolution is, because of the story of Adam and Eve. Some Christians believe the literal story of that, evolution contradicts that. This is why some Christians are so vehemently against evolution. However in my opinion reality should come before belief, and if one really feels that they have to give up a little of their belief to accept reality, they should. The story of Adam and Eve doesn't have to be taken literally and if not accepting it literally is what it takes to not deny reality then that should be expected from them.

While it is just a theory

Theory by laymans terms, and theory by scientific terms are two different things. By laymans terms gravity is a fact and not just a theory, by scientific terms, gravity is both a theory and a proven fact. In scientific terms, a theory is merely an explanation to some thing, the theory of evolution explains something about the diversity of life.

Its hard to say however whether I believe in evolution or not

Evolution doesn't have to contradict your belief in god, I understand that you are defending evolution which I applaud you for as you are defending education. However, I must also defend the validity of evolution, and I do have to say being indecisive about whether or not you buy into evolution, is almost as nonsensical as being indecisive on whether or not you buy into gravity. Evolution is one of the most proven scientific theories out there, probably right next to the theory of gravity, there is roughly as much evidence for evolution as there is for gravity in this day and age.

because alot of non-theists belive in it

A lot of rational, educated, and realistic people "believe" in it. There is as many Christians and theists that acknowledge evolution as the truth it is as atheists and non-theists. Evolution doesn't have to contradict Christianity or any belief in god, what I have found in the world of theists when science confronts them is there are two kinds. Those whom accommodate their belief in god to their perception of reality, those whom accommodate their perception of reality to their belief in god. The latter is more damaging to humanity as a whole as well as the individual. I don't want to come off as hostile, I really don't. However I have to say being on the fence about evolution is like being on the fence on whether or not gravity is real. Gravity doesn't contradict god because we can't deny gravity, our god (as in the god of most people) created gravity, is responsible for gravity, why can't it be the same for evolution? A lot of Christians whom accept evolution think of it like that.

Evolution has been proven many times. It's actual thing. No one cares that it does not fits in your favorite bronze age myth.

If we're learning about other religions and beliefs in school, why can't we learn about evolution?

Side: No

Evolution is a theory and students should be able to ask plenty of questions about it.

Side: No
