18. My only problem is then...
...if you decide that creationism is overwhelmingly religious, do you stop teaching anything that could have religion remotely associated with it? There was a World Religion class in my public high school....technically, discussing creationism wouldn't be out of place in such a class....would you get rid of that class in such a case?
