Evolution should be taught. It is not even a hypothesis by this point. Creationism on the other hand is a religious belief so it should be taught in church or as a view some people have while discussing literature and history in school.

Evolution? Not only should it be taught, it needs to be taught as it is the unifying theory of every field of biology.

Creationism is not a scientific theory. It has no place in the science classroom. Religious explanations on the origins of the universe or humans do have a place in religious education.

No debate required.
Evolution is a fact that is fundamental to our knowledge of the world around us.
Creationism is just superstitious fantasy.

i'm not from here, but i think you can take religious theory at AS and A-levels or something (?). if that's the case you could teach the theory of creationism in said class?

you wouldn't teach creationism in a general science class cuz it's not based on science. that would make no sense, if that's what you're asking.

Creationism is touched on at GCSE level in Religion and Philosophy, just in passing as in "this is what some people believe." I agree it shouldn't be taught in Science lessons as it's not scientific.
