Evolution is currently being taught in schools as a fact. It should not be taught a fact, because it goes against the beliefs of many religions.
What is taught in public schools should not offend the religious. I am personally not religious, but I do not believe that evolution should be taught as a fact. Rather it should be taught as a theory.
Instead of teaching religion as a fact, religion should be taught as a theory. In addition, other point of views should be taught.
Another way to solve this dilemma, is to allow the students to be signed out of this unit, if their parents or students feel it is necessary. They could instead be taught an alternate unit.
The Teach Evolution as a Theory petition to schools was written by Jonathan Seto and is in the category Religion at GoPetition.
