Going back to one of the comments that a majority of Americans are Christian, I feel very strongly that this is only true for one reason. People that are NOT Christians don't want to risk their position in life by making it known that they don't believe in the whole Christian thing. It's kind of like acceptance thru association. If people know I don't believe in God, they won't accept me for who I am. I for one am sick of the world being dominated by the religious crowd. Simple things like not being able to buy a bottle of Bailey's at 11am on a Sunday morning trip to Meijer does it for me.

As for Creation, ID, and evolution. Each should have it's place in public education. Darwin and Evolution should be in a science class since his theories and research are based on the scientific method. ID and Creation should be included in a philosophy course. Give the students the "facts" or "theories" as they are currently accepted and let the student form his or her own beliefs. Unfortunately this world is full of people that refuse to accept that students should be free to learn from all views and beliefs. Give them the ability to think and decide for themselves. Don't force anything on them, but most of all don't hide it from them either.
