  1. I can see why Christianity went largely unquestioned for so many centuries; apart, that is, from the brand competition. The existence of Yahweh can almost be inferred from the spectacle of an awe-inspiring piece of architecture like a medieval cathedral such as Salisbury.

    It takes an effort to realize the actual inspiring reality:- that feeble humans achieved all that enduring magnificence, unaided by any mystic super-being.

    As for the controversy, I say why not teach it? Take a little time to tell it how it is, and students will go out into the world fully armed with the truth about id creationism, astrology, necromancy, alchemy, and a general understanding of how such superstition came about in the absence of rigorous scientific principles
