Should creationism be taught in public schools as an alternative to evolution?

Do you know what creationism is? Creationism is the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution. There are arguments between people about the teaching of creationism in schools, however, creationism should not be taught in public schools as an alternative to evolution. There are two main reasons that demonstrate why creationism should not be taught in public schools as an alternative to evolution. 

First, the definition of creationism directly states that creationism is a belief. Also, creationism has no direct ties to science. Although it challenges science, it is based on religion. Unfortunately, science is based on facts and many accurate experiments. Creationism is a matter of faith, which cannot be taught in school.

Second, according to the federal law in the United States, religious teaching is not allowed in schools. Which gives me an idea that creationism should not be allowed in schools, because it is based on religion, and not a fact.

Thus, creationism should not be allowed, because creationism is based on a religion and the federal law stating that teaching religion in public schools is illegal.
