You obviously missed the post where in response to a similar question from
Ron, I stated unequivocally that it is not fair not to teach it is school.
( But if you do
want it taught in schools, both pro and con must be taught on both sides. I
frankly think few would graduate from high school as YECs if kids were to be
shown seismic data contradicting what the YECs teach.

I asked Ron the question I did because I doubt that YECs would be happy to
have their viewpoint both taught AND criticised in schools. If it is really
the discussion of both sides of the issue that is really desired, why isn't
it done in the Conservative churches today?
