What's funny to me is that it is those who insult the intelligence of others who believe this is "probably true"

It probably IS true...

I mean, you know they have an entire museum dedicated to these ideas, right?

If that test isn't real, I'm sure there are many out there that are. This is common stuff in religious communities. In fact if I posted that to my Facebook feed I'd have more people offended and worried about me that I think it's wrong than not. Well it would be close.

Yeah, the whole thing about "i can't tell you the name of the school" gives it so much credibility.

And yeah, I'm also sure there are many tests that are real. (???)

If your (I'm assuming here based on context) religious friends worry that you think its real, shouldn't that be just a little tiny hint about who believes it?

i've been vacillating all day between posting it and not posting it. a pretty sizable chunk of my friends list is christians (some fundie, some not) and when i post stuff questioning The Order of Things there's a contingent that tends to get pretty up in arms and create a huge scene, so i try to balance things out so i'm only posting something controversial once a week or so. i just questioned literal translation of the bible to start a dialogue and got an earful, so i'm going to wait a bit to post this one

I mean, a quick Google search of the name of the quiz shows it came from a DVD and not a private Christian school in SC.

The answers and grade were written in by some tard on reddit.

i've been searching and i can't find any confirmation either way. it's definitely not out of the realm of possibility, this is literally the same material i was taught in my religious homeschool curriculum. and of course you have the creation science museum espousing this same stuff. a classic case of poe's law

Oh I know what you mean. You should do it. It's rarely one big thing that opens peoples eyes. It's normally a bunch of small things over time that chips away at ungrounded beliefs.

i will, i'm going to dig around and see if i can confirm it first though. in the meantime i try to season my posts with more lighthearted stuff. i don't want to become a demagogue and drive people away from thinking about these sorts of things by beating them to death with it

Better handwriting than I've ever had. I'm so glad my SC edumacation taught me ID, abstinence, and Eurocentric history.
