@ sheepcat: Is this a public school? If so, I don't understand how religious views can be taught in a public school. If it is a private shool, then can't the school invite anyone they want to speak with the students? I'm confused.

@amos

Tell me, what do YOU think the common ground might be?

Here's a few ideas. We can talk to each other with respect, patience and kindness and avoid condescending language, ridicule and mocking. Both sides need to learn this lesson (myself included). We can also keep pure science in science classes and reserve naturalism and creationism for other venues such as philosophy class.
