1. Well, I'm glad that's finally settled...

 

... just be sure to mention that it's a theory that requires one to believe in talking snakes and/or other magical shit.

2. That is just one part of it

It would also have to include Native American Creation, and a lot of other Creation theories of other religions

As the religious right so often points out it is not fair to just give one side of the question
so I would think they would embrace this

4. I see(I think) what you are saying-

I would certainly be against it-serious suggestion or not. It would put most students to sleep to rattle through all the creation stories and enlighten no one. Maybe as an elective.

3. on one condition

Don't go teaching baseless, ascientific trash in schools without a shred of evidence unless you can advertise it as such. Also, ensure the student audience is old enough to think critically for themselves, in fact, just leave it in college.... where theology classes already exist... wait, no on second though.... this is dumb

ok how about a class called "creation myths"

You can put any sily thing that you or anyone else could ever dream up in there and call it education. Easy A, fun for the kids, they can each make thier own creation myth and it'll have as much evidence / credibility as any produced my a major religion.

6. No such thing

There's no such thing as a ""Theory of Creationism". Not in the sense that scientists use the word theory anyway, as in "Theory of Evolution.
