Creationism Is Dangerous

Something you should know about your friends that hold to creationism is that they are in the grip of a near-cultish belief system. This HBO documentary demonstrates that.
Creationism, the documentary reveals, isn't a harmless, compartmentalized fantasy. It's a suffocating, oppressive worldview through which believers must interpret reality-and its primary target is children. For creationists, intellectual inquiry is a sin, and anyone who dares to doubt the wisdom of their doctrine invites eternal damnation.

What's so dangerous about teaching kids both sides of the story? Like why not let kids decide if the earth is flat or spherical, or whether diseases are cause by germs or demons. No matter how dumb the controversy is, I say teach both sides! ;)
