Louisiana public schools teaching Christianity and belittling other religions

Recommended Posts

Does anyone around here experience this stuff? I've heard some stories regarding Concord schools but not CMS. My son's old charter school played with the line a bit. I think the charter schools being introduced will be full of this stuff.

Some of the new charter schools in NC are going to be in churches and were previously private Christian schools.

I do not like prayer in school nor do I want biases for OR against religion in school.

Science is not biased against anyone. It's just science.

 

If you think that teaching evolution and not teaching creationism is "biased" you don't have a clue how science works.

 

Science has nothing to say about Jesus, Buddha, or Olivia Newton John's character from "Xanadu".

Point was, the "science" that you bow down to cannot get things right within 30 years, but you still bow down to it for their "30 million years ago" scenarios.

 

Not against parts of evolution at all, but also take things with a grain, sometimes a block of salt.

My daughter had a substitute who was in for a science class...started to make it a sunday school lesson and debunked any of the science for the day. Very productive!

quit trying to work this ridiculous angle that people worship science or that it needs to be "bowed down to".  they're not analogous and it's clear you're trying to make it seem like the same arguments can tear both down.

 

statements like this are particularly hilarious when you consider that almost everyone who drives a car, takes medicine, or really participates in modern society at all blindly trusts science in countless ways.  maybe someone living off the grid eating a can of beans in the woods doesn't (or doesn't nearly as much) but i doubt that's what you're doing right now.

 

did you worry about planes falling out of the sky and crushing you while you drove to work or a gas pipeline exploding and burning you alive today?  lol keep bowing down am i right

 

let's make this simple: is there a better way to understand the world around us than scientific inquiry?  does any one religion provide a better way to treat diseases, solve massive engineering problems, feed the planet, or invent new energy sources?  i'd gladly follow that religion.

When you have to start an argument by stating that someone with a different opinion is:

 

"bowing down"

 

or

 

referring to "your messiah Obama"

 

you have already lost.

 

And Science is generally a LOT better at looking at things over a 30 million year period than a 30 year period (something generally called "more data points"). But because, as you've already demonstrated, your knowledge of how science works is limited to it being some kind of religion people "bow down" to, you probably would not be aware of that.

After reading this article, I am reminded about how screwed we are as a nation that we can take what was once the most scientifically advanced country on the planet and turn it into a nation of mouth breathers in just a couple of generations

 

and blame it on black kids who wear their pants too low and their whacky rap music while calling loudly for more people like this teacher to "help us".

Oh wow look what one climate scientist said!  Thats like quoting a Westboro Baptist Church leader and saying, "Hey guys look how stupid religion is!"

 

Youre being intentionally misleading because, I dont know, you share political beliefs with a bunch of idiots so you want to make the other side look bad too.
