This truly saddens me...
A still of a 4th grade religious bias science test.

Leviticus does not justify stupidity, but it is more than enough to define corruption of the human mind.

RE: This truly saddens me...
Maybe it's not so bad. Perhaps before the course started the teacher began by saying,"I don't expect you to agree with the material, just that you learn it".

I'm certain that's what most likely happened here. No

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I hope that it was not from public school. This kind of shit going on is one good reason for curriculum standards even for private schools. The problem is, however, that curriculum standards are going to be picked at from religious folks nomatter what level of government has a role in setting them.

"Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man"

Out of interest, how old is 4th grade in your country?

I believe I was 9 in the 4th grade.

I'm calling fake.
I could put this up in word, print it off, circle some answers, get my red pen and mark it, add a sticker that cost 20c for like 100 at any stationary store, take a photo and put it on the web... doesn't mean it's real.

Around 10 or 11 I'd say.

No, it looks like the kind of thing a parochial school would give kids. I had religion tests like this in parochial school up until the end of the 1st grade when my family moved to a community with better public schools. I'm just glad I got out in time Smile

It could be fake, but for those of us here in 'merica, it's no joke. I would venture it's from a private school, but real nonetheless.
