American education
I am not an American, yet Id like to get American view points on this. Ive read on threads (here and other places) about education in your country. I am actually shocked in what some of Americans are actually being taught (elementary school and high school). You actually have states that require students to be informed of "controversy of evolution", or how does your country actually allow a Creation "museum" (that is allowed to state it as being true, and people actually believe it?).

I might come off as an ignorant asshole of your culture, but ....do you care what the rest of the world thinks? are your people so self adsorbed in your culture?

I just want to point this out that, America is number one in economic wealth but number 27 in the world in education. Yet, your number 1 in Western society as being the most religious, and the most anti science society in western society. I wonder if you can recover to what you were in the 1960s to 1990s?

Arguing with a Christian is a lot like playing chess with a pigeon. You can be the greatest player in the world, yet the pigeon will knock over all the pieces, shit on the board and strut away triumphantly.

Just to clarify, Americans had reasons to be innovative and educated in the 1960s and 1990s (USSR is the biggest one). Im just wondering what is driving your society to be number one? It seems to be religious driving now...

RE: American education
The issue is that PARTS of the US are being held back. The Northern and West/East coast part of the US are fairly innovative, liberal, well educated, wealthy, etc. and lead the world in every possible field that you could name.

Note on wealth: The amount of wealth is not important, so much as how it's distributed. You have Middle Eastern states where the vast majority of people live in abject poverty, and are essentially slaves. While you have incredible wealth concentrated in the hands of a few who live in mile high sky scrapers and can get holographic lap dances.

Your state of wealth (as you describe it) is no different then anywhere in the world, I really wasnt trying to get on this topic (yet stick to the arrogance Americans have, which as a Canadian I am witness to every day from being flooded by American media). I was wondering if you actually think your country will survive with the education you Americans are receiving?

It's called freedom to open whatever kind of business you want to. Stupid or not. Why would any
free country not "allow" it. We have enough of bad laws in this country. Laws against stupid people
doing stupid things does not have to be one of them. Plus we are also free to believe what we want
to. That's how I feel about it being an average American Joe.

Most American Media is filled with lies. And most Americans are not arrogant. And the smartest kids
I have met in the last few years have all been home schooled but the government does not want that
because that means they can't indoctrinate them into the socialists teachings they are trying to
shove down our kids throats.

Freedom to do what you want in America? I doubt it.....yet in certain cases you allow it. No one has the ability to what they want, especially when it affects others.

I disagree with everything you just said.

But a museum does not effect others. If you don't like it just don't go there. It's as simple as that.
This person was stupid enough to open a stupid museum and he was free to do so. I don't understand
what the big deal is. Just don't go there.

Well, how about stating why and how I am wrong?
