Not the real Senate, just the kiddie senate.

Yes, true. Hopefully it gets kicked into the dirt.

It'll never happen. No only is it unconstitutional but there are enough judges with the common sense to keep this out of classrooms.

Agreed. If they have to teach one myth, then surely we would need to get some other myths in there as well.

You woulda hoped that there were enough bright sparks in your ruling committee to laugh this off Dodgy Seems like you're relying on a fairly tenuous last line of defence Confused
I note that
Quote:despite pleas from scientists and religious leaders to keep religion out of science classrooms

Which religious leaders?

Think this could backfire though. By saying 'religion is science' they're entitling teachers and kids to use the scientific method on it. The strongest argument for religion I've heard (and it's fucking weak) is that religion and science are different spheres and do no overlap. By pushing this they open themselves up to testing scientific claims made in the Bible...

You scared the shit out of me.

I am sorry if I sounded profane but I thought the U.S. senate had pass this and was about to move to Canada before I read the article. I'm glad this was just a state senate and I'm very confident we won't try to make our students any less knowledgeable than they already are.

Just please, next time don't give me a heart attack. Than again, I shouldn't take any literary work as truth unless it has actual factual backing.

*Cough* Theists *Cough* Sorry, I am still sick.

Yeah sorry - I really meant to edit the title after the first response and realized I couldn't - forward apologies for anyone who clicks and poops their pants. Indeed, the "kiddy senate"... again - hopefully gets kicked into the dirt.

If a mod sees this, feel free to edit the title accordingly.

I believe its fine. You aren't lying and hopefully we can see other people's reactions to what a theocratic America would look like.

RE: Senate OKs creationism in public schools
Last time I checked...

Still not a theocracy.

It's this kind of ridiculousness that frustrates me about this country. We think ignoring the constitution is okay when it's about defending their 'god.' The religious don't get to decide what does and doesn't get taught to children especially when it is worse than a theory, it's bullshit.
