Period # 2-Sheena Clegg-Evolution vs.Creations:Is it fair that only one interpretation is taught?

  3. 3. I’m a strong believer in equality.
  4. 4. People should be able to decide on they’re own what they want to believe in, and only depicting the theory of evolution to them just gives them enough knowledge to believe that one view. </li></li></ul><li>EVOLUTION<br /><ul><li>Evolution is the belief that the human race evolved from apes.
  5. 5. It is Darwin’s theory and is also known as Darwinism.
  6. 6. Evolution is taught in the public school system.</li></li></ul><li>The Christian view<br /><ul><li>This is the belief that there is an almighty God who created man.
  7. 7. Over 80% of the U.S believes in Creationism.
  8. 8. However, this view is not taught in the public school system.</li></li></ul><li>The Muslim view<br /><ul><li>The Muslim society believes that “ Allah” created mankind.

  14. 14. This view agrees with the theory of Evolution.
  15. 15. As long as they see proof in evolution, they will continue to believe it.</li></li></ul><li>All or None!<br /><ul><li>It’s not fair to the rest of the views if only one is taught.
  16. 16. Young teens should be able to see both sides of the coin (Evolution and Creationism)
  17. 17. This will enable people to make their own choices to what they choose to believe in rather than having beliefs poured on to them.</li></li></ul><li>Work Cited<br /><ul><li>Benlafquih, Christine.
