Science is not a viewpoint, science is a process.

Creationism is a belief system, one that often rejects scientific investigation into the validity of claims.

Science, like math and language arts are not viewpoints, they are tools for understanding and creating rational and critical thinking.

Belief systems can be paths towards fields of knowledge not accessed by empirical study, but, creationism is not even that. Creationism is an attempt to validate a particular belief that is expressly unscientific, in other words, pseudo science.

I cannot believe you just suggested science should not be mandatory in school.

"Yes, I know I express ignorant views via an informational and communicative medium that would have been impossible without science, but I think it ought to be optional in school."

Dumb, dumb, dumb.
