Does your nation practice Creationism/Evolutionism?

Postby The Soviet League » Thu Oct 24, 2013 12:06 pm

Does your nation practice one of these in schools separately, or both?

The Soviet League practices Neo-Creationism, a form of Creationism in which after God/the gods formed animals and plants, they began to evolve on their own.

It depends on the school, but as a general rule, the theme seems to be that both are taught in schools, and arguments for and against both are listed, as part of a method to let children determine their own beliefs.

We don't "practice", we simply accept what our scientists tell us. But if you must go that route, we don't believe in "creation" or other foolish human concept. Our schools teach 'Evolutionary Biology' as the science which explains the origin of life. Our people accept that we evolved from lower or alternative life forms.
We're a splinter nation; we believe in Meadowism. We're sapient Mustela Itatsi, distant cousins of the Mustela Erminea and the Mustela Nivalis who shunned the ways of the Meadow for their belligerent beliefs.

We're cheese-powered. So, surrender your cheese. Or else. Yeah... or else. We'll... uh... we'll do something.

Oh and meadows are totally awesome. We love meadows.

Evolution , not creationism, due to a rather ugly dispute between our native religions and foreign religions (the less said the better, even though no one died or got injured), resulting in both sides prefering state schools to be areligious over anything else.

Creationism and Evolutionism are taught in Public Schools both as theories. In private schools, they teach whichever they want.

Evolution is the theory taught in all schools. 100.00000% of our population believes in evolution. In other words, less than 0.000005% of the population believes in creationism.

Creationism is not a "theory" in the scientific sense. It has no empirical backing. It should not be taught as if it is evolution's equal, or as if it had any validity whatsoever. Believing in creationism is like believing in homeopathy or a four-element system or a flat Earth.

We teach both, because we are not so close-minded as to shut out one or the other or outright mock them and those who believe in that particular theory. There are optional classes in high school that teach either Evolution or various forms of intelligent design. Neither one is truly seen as "Scientific Fact" and both have their various merits and whatnot.

I suppose your version of creationism is sound enough, and has, at least, some decent credibility.

Our schools teach science, not lies and superstitions.

Young Earth Creationism is on the list of Pernicious Doctrines that it is a felony to expose children to.
Even in Antiquity, all the good names were already taken.

Pretty much. Normal Creationism has flaws, and those holes were repaired by theologians and philosophers to merge with Evolutionism.

Since the Dominion was never exceptionally 'Christianized' at any time in its history, there was never a big fuss when we began teaching evolution in schools in 1892, as the theory made much more sense to the Royal Institute of Science than anything else offered at the time.

Both are taught in school as theories. Evolution is taught in Science class while creationism is taught in theology class. Most people believe in evolution but some find creationism to be fact. It's whatever and the government doesn't take a side as a part of the separation of church and state.
