I do not recall ever hearing in any classroom that Darwinism was a perfect
theory - however, I doubt ANY religious doctrine or theory could stand up
the the tests and scrutiny Darwin's theories have - and still remain robust.
There is abundant empirical evidence regarding Evolution; religious
theories, in comparison, lack such tangible tools.

Someone says "Give me proof of evolution."  Evolutionists could say "Look at
viruses - they evolve becoming resistant to antibiotics.  We have documented
such evolution on paper and on film for all to see and examine."  Someone
says "Give me proof of God."  Religionists could say "Babble, burp, and
beep."  Religions, including Theosophy, have yet to come up with even a
semi-uniform 'working hypothesis' regarding who or what "God" is or is not -
provided "God" does exist.  And, for those who believe "God" does not exist,
just saying "God does not exist" is an oxymoron.

Where would a school even begin if mandated to teach "God" as a fact - which
is required in order to teach Creationism?  Again, whose "God" did the
creating?  The favorite seems to be the "God" of the those with the most
money or biggest biceps at a particular time in history.
