More Monkey Business

The Kansas Board of Education doesn't want the Theory of Evolution to be taught in its public schools. Are you a man or a mouse?

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? I believe in creationism.

What should be taught in schools? Let the student decide. It has come up in my classroom. If a student asks me how people can believe we came from monkeys, I play devil's advocate. I want students to think.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? Everybody's responsible for their own actions. That's unorthodox today since everyone points everywhere else for the demise of things.

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? I believe in evolution. It's a generally accepted principle among educated people.

What should be taught in schools? I see evolution as a field of science. Creationism is part of history, literature, poetry, and mythology. They should both be taught but under distinctly different circumstances.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? Man walking on the moon. I didn't believe it possible.

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? I believe God created man. People only believe in evolution because we look like monkeys. But God created monkey, God created man; it's the same formula.

What should be taught in schools? They should teach the truth. What I believe.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? What's unorthodox? I believe that we were put on this earth to take care of each other. Maybe that's an unorthodox belief.

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? Both. I'm the spiritual type.

What should be taught in schools? I don't think they should teach religion in school. But they should also know that science isn't the answer to everything.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? In the '90s nothing is unorthodox anymore. I guess one would be that I don't believe America is a superpower. Any military weapon that we have, anyone else can have.

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? A combination of both. I don't believe in God, I'm into Buddhism. We come from a force.

What should be taught in schools? Evolution is a science. Science should be taught. In religion school, creationism.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? It's all supposed to be a dream, our existence. An illusion.

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? I don't believe in either. I don't know where we come from.

What should be taught in schools? Different beliefs should be offered.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? I don't have any.

Occupation Grad student

Do you believe in evolution, creationism, or some combination of both? Evolution. It's more reasonable. Also, I'm not that religious. I was raised a Jew, but I don't hold the beliefs.

What should be taught in schools? They should teach evolution theory mainly. But they should discuss the other theories as well, so they can understand the debate.

Are there any other unorthodox beliefs you have? Maybe extraterrestrial life?
