Creativity is something that leads to original ideas and ideas is what the world requires to go ahead.....But its sorry to say that science school curriculum only aims at evolution,theory and purely lacks creativity.........

Ya well this wud again take me back to the education system of the country. Science shud actually have scope for creativity... but the books are only filled with certain theories...and derivations ..that has been carried out...ages ago. Instead certain practical problem sovling sessions in science..wud increase the curiosity and understanding of a child. In a way making him more interested for science...and eventually making him intelligent....thats the basic idea of education right ??

I really, really dig your point. I remember being excited about Chem class because we actually got to mix things together and see the results-- and try to predict them beforehand and such.. Tangible, you know?

Creativity is wonderful in its place. It is not limited in science but it must be based on facts. One hundred and fifty years of facts support the process of evolution. Using the hard won facts as the basis for the science curriculum does not limit creativity. Original ideas should be encouraged but the must have a foundation in fact.

Actually since I believe Humanism to be a religion, in my ideal world, I'd bad both creationism and evolutionism from basic courses and have them both represented in science and philosophy classes at a college level. There's many practical areas of science that are missed and glossed over for the ethical stances made by both sides of this argument.
