Question, I know it's probably an over-hyped problem. But where any Americans here taught only creationism or creationism and evolution at the same time at high school?

Ultra-south Kentucky here! No, in science classes, we only were taught Evolution. However, other teachers, mostly English teachers, would teach as if creationism was true.

Only evolution. I'm north eastern in the states. Pretty much we are taught evolution because people get upset when teachers even mention religion in school. I'm all for the don't push your religion off on people policy, but on not for the don't state your opinion because it offends me crap.

It's due to them being teachers. If they start talking about religion, it will be seen as them forcing their opinions on impressionable minds, as their entire job is to teach what is accepted as fact. And teaching religion in a public school is against the constitutional amendments.

"And teaching religion in a public school is against the constitutional amendments"

That right there, I believe, is the problem. In the UK, **** , in most countries they teach religious education or religious studies. We learn about other religions, what their main points are, what their laws are, etc. You get a nice wide view of how the whole world population see's life/mortality/morality as well as a teaching of the scientific view and you get left to make your own decision Europe also has the highest growth in atheism. Make of that what you will

Too tired to discuss, but just know I paritally disagree with what you are saying. Being that this is an internet debate involving religion I doubt we can come away from this smelling like roses so I choose to take the path of we both come away in mutual disagreement. Deal? deal, goodnight

If you went to a state funded public school then there is a reason for that. By having that school support one religion, it violates the first amendment, the state must support no religion over any other. I'm sure that the students could have done anything involving religion otherwise.

I went to high school in Alaska, I learned about evolution only. The bible belt(south/south-east states) is where creationism is most prevalent.
