Dinosaurs introduce creation/evolution to children.  There are people who oppose all homeschooling primarily due to the fact that some homeschoolers teach that creation can legitimately be viewed as one theory of how the world came to be.  Those people don’t see the irony in the closed-mindedness of their position.

Be responsible and teach all theories.  Regardless of your personal beliefs, a well-educated person will know the strengths and weaknesses of the major theories.  Regardless of what you believe based on what you have been taught in the past, be a good scientist and weigh all the evidence.
