Should Science Education be based on Science and free from religion?
Tim Standish commented
This seems like an ignorant question. Science is based on metaphysics, always has been and is inseparable from untestable metaphysical assumptions. The interesting question would be how our future president sees the interface between science and religion, metaphysics or whatever you want to call it. My wish is that science education did a better job of helping students to see the assumptions necessary to do science and how they are impacted by various belief systems.

Several thousand years of history has proved that religion will not keep up with science and as long as there are Bible-thumpers (or Koran thumpers etc), it won't.

Yes, I strongly feel that Science Education should be based on *Science* only and it has to be *absolutely* free from religion. I am seeing, for more than 50 years, how religions make insolvable mess.
