Cabron, with respect, you're missing the point again. Nobody here (apart from the trolls) are putting down people that have faith.

People are merely saying that faith is not scientific, because science requires testable hypotheses, as Zathrus said. This doesn't apply to any form of faith, including Christianity, by definition. This doesn't mean faith is all bullshit. It doesn't mean it's useless. There's nothing more stupid than these militant atheists that would have nobody practice any sort of religion anywhere. But what it does mean is that it does NOT belong in a science lesson at school.

Teaching about religion and religious beliefs and culture is perfectly fine in schools. To not do so is to ignore a vast and very important social mechanism. But it belongs in Religious Studies, or Theology, or whatever you wish to call it, where it deserves to be taught and treated with respect of other faiths. Blindly teaching that Islam, Christianity, or <insert religion here> are the only religions worth considering is akin to only teaching math students how to count.
