Santorum told the editorial board of the Nashua Telegraph this week, “There are many on the left and in the scientific community, so to speak, who are afraid of that discussion because oh my goodness you might mention the word, God-forbid, ‘God’ in the classroom, or ‘Creator,’ or that there may be some things that are inexplainable by nature where there may be, where it’s better explained by a Creator. It’s very interesting that you have a situation that science will only allow things in the classroom that are consistent with a non-Creator idea of how we got here, as if somehow or another that’s scientific. Well maybe the science points to the fact that maybe science doesn’t explain all these things.”

Funny how you don't say the same thing about religion. Very telling.

There is no left in your country, Mr Santorum. There is only center-right, right and ultra right.
I'm not afraid to mention God, I just think he has no place in Natural Science. He has a place among all the other gods in Religion studies, though.
Goddidit will never be a better explanation, it's a cop-out, that is all. It's an "I don't know, so let's just skip it" kind of answer.
We will only allow things in the classroom that are consistent with reality, in classes that deals with reality. In magic classes - in other words Theology - then you can talk about gods and deities till the cows come home for all I care. I kinda liked Religion studies, actually. The Aesir gods, the Greek and Roman gods, and the Abrahamic trinity God/Allah/YHWH. I can recite quite a lot of the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2, verses 1-20 (in Swedish), thanks to my wonderful Religion and Swedish teacher in grades 4th through 6th.
Not bad for an atheist, is it?

Move to Iran. They hate science as much as you do.
