I agree with Prof Richard Dawkins that the subject of creationism should be taught in school.

However, creationism has been taught in schools across the world for many hundreds of years.

The theory of the 'Big Bang' and the origin of all life from water was written about 650 AD in a book known as the Qur'an.

What scientists really need to clear up is how such a modern scientific theory could have been known by any human being at this time in mankind's history.

There is even speculation that Charles Darwin may have gained his theories on evolution from the Muslim Holy Book, although this is speculation.
