Evolution is biological history, mutation, and statistics.

There is nothing wrong with teaching evolution as a theory, along with creation as a theory. Neither should be taught as proven fact, because both are unproveable.

Default Teaching Evolution in public schools?

I do not see any other way of reasonably explaining the biological history of life so I totally agree with teaching evolution as part of a science curriculum.

I object to teaching Creationism or Intelligent Design as anything but another myth in a comparative religion or as delusion in a Psyche class.

Evolution is observable, where as abiogenesis is not.

And there, you see, is the problem. Some believe evolution is a fact rather than a theory of the unproveable.

Which creation theory should we teach? Judeo-Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist?

There are more than one.

And you can't prove that creation is just a myth. Both theories should be presented as just that: theories. Suggesting that those who ascribe to the creation theory are delusional is a bit insulting don't you think?

So changes in DNA and observable traits over time are cannot be proven? Survival of the fittest cannot be proven?
