I'm going to paraphrase Thunderf00t here.





"Did we teach the points for and against cold fusion and let the students decide?"

No. Schools (specifically government schools) should have no religious teachings being taught as truth as part of regular classes. Teach it in history along with the rest of the myths and legends if you want, have your little lunch time scripture clubs if you want but don't waste my/our time trying to hold us back. If we want to know about your "salvation," don't call us, we'll call you.

This reminds me of c0nc0rdance again (hey, I like his videos). There is a video where he is asking the Discovery Institute questions (he's a molecular biologist, so it's not always easy to follow). In the end, one of the panel gains his respect, the rest are morons in his eyes. So there are creationists that know what they are doing and are very smart. Doesn't excuse their ignoring the data, but shows that it's not simply pure ignoramouses.

No its pure brainwashing, thats what religion is, thats how it thrives. One generation, convinces the next generation about their beliefs, and the cycle goes on and on for thousands of years.

It doesn't really matter how intelligent you are, you can be brainwashed just like everyone else.

Plus, I had forgotten about, but remember seeing a committee on getting textbooks for schools (in Texas I think) making changes to it (which I don't think they should have a say in). I can imagine that committee making the spin to seem like the example of it being pseudoscience into it being absolutely correct.

A theist and an atheist go to heaven.
theist: "See! There is a heaven."
atheist: "So, you consider heaven a joke too?"
