Why do ideas have to mutually exclusive? This argument has been going on since 1859 and to be quite honest, it's getting a bit boring. Believe what you want to believe, let ideas run free in the classroom, don't limit them to this or that or you can't cross this line because it isn't scientific. Logic has its place in the world but so does faith, and sometimes they can go hand in hand.

Logic has its place in the world - a science class. Faith has it's place - an RE/sociology class. Logic and faith never go hand in hand. A logical argument will have no element of faith. Faith is a belief in something when there is no logical reason to do believe in it. You can't "believe what you want to believe" - that's not a belief but a desire to believe.

One key point Dawkins didn't get out (mainly because he was given too much rubbish to comment on) was that even if you allowed space in a science class to speculate on the bits that science doesn't know, then that wouldn't give much time for Christianity. You'd have to make time for slam, Judaism, Spaghetti-Monster-ism, and an infinite number of other possible religions. Regardless of that, science contradicts virtually all of Christianity.

There are so many theories in science, what do you think they are other than a belief that it is true, simply because the theory has not been realised yet.....and as far as we know might never be realised. There's so much dogma in science that it's becoming its own religion and Richard Dawkins has become the equivalent of the Pope.

Latest comment: There should be no religion in a science class. Of course teach religion in a religion class, all religions carry the same message, to love other humans. Science tells us how the interactions of nature work. Even if everything was created by a god, science does not care about this, it would be nice to find out either way, scientist want to learn the physics of nature. See how god did it : )
