1. your country
2. were you taught creationism or evolution in school?
1. The Faroe Islands
Evolution, but we never had to deal with butthurt christians, i do remember my teacher saying something like "remember, this is just a theory" just in case but people seemed to just face it as its own thing
>the Earth wasn't created in six literal days
>being taught creationist bullshit
That's burger tier.
Our middle and higschool have a separate course on religion, where creationism is taught as part of religion.
Even the most lunatic religious teachers tell us "this is what religion believes etc etc, but it's a metaphor"
>this is what people actually believe
>muh no missing links because ?????

I went to Catholic school from preschool to 5th grade. I was taught fundamentalist creationism. I kinda just believed it cuz I didn't have anything else to believe in. From 6th to 12th grade I went to a different Catholic school where they taught evolution and that creationism was "symbolic" and not meant to be taken literally
2. On lessons on biology we studied evolution for a year, on lessons on literature we had to study Biblical creation myths for a bit. On lessons on history we were presented with various naturalistic and and supernatural hypotheses for the origin of humans.
By the way, what irritates me the most in the biology classes here is that our teachers always talk about vertebrates when it comes to evolution thing, like as "hurr durr dinosaurs had pervaded the Earth before mammals, dinosaurs were huge and stronk but the fucking meteor killed them, dinosaurs have human rights, dinosaurs are mehmet my son durka durka..."
Those who love dinosaurs are only childish retards and they must have taught us the history of arthropods instead.
It could definitely be more interesting.
in my country _Science_ is taught at school, and _Faith_ at catechism
[spoiler]both fail to impress the kids unfortunately, that's why my country is how it is
>sun was created on the third """"""day""""""
how did humans count the days if there was no sun before??
The Faroe Islands are a very religious and deeply conservative society in general. Our national awakening in the late 19th century was partly because of increasing secular Danish influence. Our public school law is originally Danish, but Danes got rid of the Christianity thing a long time ago.
>tfw Poland is slowly giving into the spirit of Sodom
I went to Catholic mass though cause my parents dragged me. I thought it was boring as fuck but I was forced to go up through my confirmation. After that my parents just kinda gave up on it and let me do what I wanted. Needless to say I haven't been back. It was just difficult for the church to remain relevant when you were a kid and you knew you had fun vidya waiting for you at home after slogging through an hour service. God couldn't compete.
At least it's better than the South though. Went to visit an aunt in North Carolina once and got dragged to a Baptist mass. It was kinda cool at first with all the upbeat singing but the novelty wore off quick and by hour THREE I would have sold my soul to the devil to get the hell out. Never again.
Our biology teacher was religious, when asked about it she said that evolution is completely compatible with christianity
Even our religion teacher, a priest, admitted we don't have to take the bible literally
I was in a Catholic School. Studied Evolution in science class, studied the Bible and other stuff in Christian class, neither urged that this was the real shit, but because of how we come to approach the world through science I was more inclined to believe in evolution was the real deal, while Adam and Eve and the 7 days shit, and the rest of the Bible was some quasi-other worldly religious shit that somehow existed alongside normally with reality but separate from it.
So I can say when I was young, if I was asked on how the world came to be. I would say, oh, god created the world in 7 days, but when asked on how it really came to be, like seriously, I'd say, oh billions of years ago there was a big bang, yada yada, space debris/dust formed the solar system, planets, earth, meteors came to earth, there was then life, then evolution started, dinosaurs are awesome and after billions of years here we are because we evolved from some monkeys in the past.
It's kinda strange really. Nobody really cares about it here other than the "go forth, and multiply" part of Genesis because of muh contraceptives, oh, and the problem with gay marriage.
Evolution of course. I didn't even know creationism was a thing before I got good enough in English to encounter Americans talking about it on the Internet. There was also some Muslim guy in high school who tried to argue with the teacher but he had proved to be a retard multiple times already so noone really cared.
So after all there's still people who don't hate us yet.
I went to school in Texas and was taught evolution. Creationism was never brought up in school outside of speech classes.
I thought creationism in schools was just a meme
Learned about evolution.
We also talked about creationism.
