Wow?! I'm the first to post on this story? Cool. Never done that before!

Anyways... Fair enough. If a kid says-

'My Mummy says God created everything as it is right now in 7 days.'

Then it should be treated with the contempt it deserves. Briefly tell the child that it isn't Scientific and has no basis in provable fact and move on. That isn't the same as teaching the controversy.
