← Free to teach creationism?

The "Passport of 'free for all' fictional moralities, fears and eutopias" is mental illness sewn upon the hypothesis of creationism being taken as fact. This is why it is dangerous to permit this assumption and more especially so when interwoven with education, which poses upon an expectation, particularly to its students, that it must be taken seriously and form a superior benevolent authority, delivering rationality and intellectual rigour worth the individuals undivided attention. In order for it to fulfill this role I suggest it essential that education is bound over to teaching morality as free of 'unknowable speculations' and as such making it clear that historical guesstimates at 'unknowable speculations' are exactly that - made by humans and from nowhere else!
