How about they stop teaching about God or evolution as fact and teach what a theory is, like exactly what a "theory" in its most basic terms really means, then just associate the theory of God, ID, Evolution and of course FSM etc.
Once kids know they can decide and choose what theory they want to believe and try and understand, they'll also be aware that they can in fact change their minds when new evidence comes to light rather then continuing to push 'facts' into other's heads.
It's strange because even in science class, we're still taught that things like gravity are fact. Accepting it as fact, means for most people, some other theories, such as quantum physics just melt their brain when they're trying to even understand the basics because it changes everything they've thought as fact.
God does'nt fit into the theory category.

Some believe that they'll get 72 virgin wives in heaven if they did that... go figure.
Gravity is a theory, a theory based on facts, like evolution is as well. 72 virgins, like god, do not fit into the area of a theory.
