I'm an electrical engineer. After the week I am having, I almost agree with this (Nyuck, Nyuck). Written by a Liberty grad?

I, for one, knows what electricity feels like!  And I've seen it's consequences in the spark gap.

Holy.... shit.  Same observation; I majored in EE (but I am not "practicing" it).  This page illustrates at best a pre-Franklin level of understanding, electromagnetism was pretty well knocked by 1900 with Maxwell's Equations.

No...way... This is just... I don't even know where to start. Putting a fork in a power socket? If whoever uses this book as "curriculum" in a science class electrocuted themselves it may help some kids. Lightning? Ben Franklin? Thunder? This makes me cringe when I see this crap. It makes me sick that someone would try to teach this as "science".

@Freek A small change: *In an ominous voice* "Electricity has never been observed!" *lightning flash strikes the speaker, illuminating him and his surroundings, heating his body and the air around him, and coursing (gasp!) electricity through his nervous system, twitching his muscles and potentially shorting his heart* ... Yup. Never observed...

NO NO NO ! The sad part is, that this is what is happening, I think the best cure for all Christians is take the lot put them in some place in the middle of no where. Take away all things related to modern technology and let them live truly biblical. That should shock the lot back to reality.

Hmmm, so you can't feel electricity.  I expect a lot of people have felt an electric shock.

Some of us even got to do some arc welding, without warning.

It would not work; they'd simply decide that god helped us/led us to discovering all that stuff for a reason.  There's a not insignificant branch of Xianity that does accept what science teaches us, but thinks god is behind it all; it's god's great plan for the universe that he made just for us.
