How To Teach a Healthy Dose of Skepticism?

Ripley29 Re:Science vs. Religion? (880 comments)

So, in the USA, are science and religion still fighting? Why not let people have their beliefs?
That's great, but to what extent? It's all well and good if people keep their faith, or lack thereof private, but how often does this end up happening? Should we teach Evolution alongside Creationism alongside Pastafarianism just to 'let people have their beliefs'?

A former professional scientist once told me, that scepticism is so big that it's difficult to introduce new ideas.
And many others would tell you that the greatest acheivement a scientist could have is to make a new discovery, or prove an well established discovery incorrect with the irrefutable proof to back it up.
