In my opinion, evolution seems to have some mythical educational status whereby anyone who challenges/does not believe it is ridiculed for their apparent stupidity.

Look at GCSE RS/Biology textbooks: evolution is presented in a completely biased way leading to most people believe it is fact.

This of course is false.

For your information I do not 'believe' in (Darwin's) Theory of Evolution.

I can guarantee with almost 100% accuracy that (Darwin's) Theory of Evolution is incorrect.

Why do you think it evolution should be granted this status?

That is my point. Why do people automatically assume this when arguing against evolution?

I know there are plenty of people actually against evolution, but the way you've worded your post makes me think you are trolling.

God didn't have a PhD in biology when he published the hypothesis of creationism, did he? His book wasn't even peer reviewed.

But it's true because it says so in this book. :yes:

He has all the knowledge in the world, so I guess he would have a top grade in every type and subject of study :yes:

I think it would be a valuable investment of time to teach the scientific method and a variety of epistemological approaches to provide a basis for understanding the nature of scientific knowledge. Maybe that would eradicate the unhelpful "it's only a theory" argument, too.

I don't think anything should be taught blindly as fact, but sometimes it's more practical to say "this is how it is" rather than "it is highly probable that this is how it is".

You know you're a troll, we know you're a troll, God knows you're a troll. To obvious.
