Since I was young I had always assumed that evolution was something everybody knew about I went to church and for the longest time didnt even realize that the churchs ideas were in conflict with Charles Darwins theory By the time I was in high school I had let go of my faith in gods like I had the Easter bunny and Santa Clause at a younger age But I came to be disappointed in the fact that my questions about evolution could not be discussed in school for fear of others lashing out It was particularly difficult to understand why someone who believed in god created us would not want to learn about evolution as well having believed both could be true simultaneously for years It wasnt until college where evolution would even be offered as an explanation for anything though not as to humanitys origin Though now I understand evolution and what it could mean about what it means to be human the knowledge was not taught in school Of all the things that teachers drilled into our heads evolution was not one of them for even a day This was not due to laws forbidding evolutionary curriculum but rather due to public schools avoiding the controversy associated with the theory by choosing to leave out evolution in education all together Students who are fortunate enough to learn evolution in school may be required to learn creationism alongside it presenting its theories as scientific whether implicitly or affirmatively Creationism though is not excluded from academia is a theological concept not science and should not be presented as such in a public classroomalongside evolution Theology may be an appropriate subject for students but the theories proposed are speculative and do not follow the established scientific method for acquiring knowledge This method is without a doubt the most important aspect of how theories become credible and by which scientists endeavor to produce truth
