This topic makes me sad, because both sides seem to be pushing a definite agenda. One side is pushing religion, the other is pushing antireligion, and the topic is science. Getting real basic, any attempt to force schools to teach science with either a religious or an antireligious bias is a violation of the US constitution. I am surprised that this has never been brought up in the courts. The best anyone can say about origins or evolutions is "We don't know for sure at this time."

The proper role of science is not to bolster anyone's religious beliefs, but to study anything that can be observed. And the proper role of religion is not to dictate facts, but to practice beliefs. Those are big differences.
