Rick Santorum thinks creationism should be taught in public schools because science can't answer everything

Rick SantorumBrian Tashman at Right Wing Watch (a blog sponsored by the People for the American Way) reports that GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum wants creationism and intelligent design taught in public schools.

In New Hampshire, Santorum told the Nashua Telegraph that creationism and intelligent design should be a part of science curriculum to "teach the controversy."  According to Santorum:

It’s very interesting that you have a situation that science will only allow things in the classroom that are consistent with a non-Creator idea of how we got here, as if somehow or another that’s scientific. Well maybe the science points to the fact that maybe science doesn’t explain all these things. And if it does point to that, why don’t you pursue that? But you can’t because it’s not science, but if science is pointing you there how can you say it’s not science?

  • So if there is no answer for it, fantasy will do. 🙄

  • Yes i agree with you.Creationism must be taught in school and colleges as well because our new generation has to know about creationism more then science i think.Good and informative post.

  • You know this got me to thinking about a conversation I had recently with an apparently religious or at least superstitious person. They don't seem to be too keen on psychologists or people with degrees in psychology, not to mention science in general. They literally said, "If science can't explain it, then it's demons, but psychologist dismiss demons." My thought was, "That's basically what they said about the Black Plague too, yet science eventually found an answer for it." For certain reasons, I kept my mouth shut, but it was the stupidest thing I ever heard. Of course, if this comment is found, I could still find myself with problems despite not mentioning names, but the fact is, that is what this sort of ignorance causes.

    The reason creationism isn't taught in science class is that it has no basis in fact, which is what science is. There are plenty of religious studies classes where creationism is explored. But science and religious studies are entirely different spheres which is why creationism doesn't overlap into science classes.

  • I believe that crationism comes with the prosperity and from the atmosphere where you are growing as well. Chances of the creationism will be reduced when there are less opportunities for a person.
