51 delegates are interviewed about whether or not evolution should be taught in our schools. It is really saddening what these women believe in this day and age.
Some of their answers were tragic. One actually said "I was never taught Evolution in my schools so....." Another said Evolution was theory ONLY and there were no facts...
That was painful to watch at least there were a few of them with brains. To bad there were out numbered by the idiots.
Thank goodness these aren't elected officials!
Oh wait, some of our elected officials don't "believe" in evolution either and think that "every idea needs to be taught" too. Like you know, alien abductions.
Science is not a faith system!!
An opinion should NOT be taught. Will they allow Hindus to teach their beliefes? How about Wiccans? How about Native Americans? Why not let the lunar hoax be taught too? This is not a difficult issue. If you want to tell your kids, AT HOME, that evolution is bunk, fine. Teach them at home. Don't bring my kids into your brainwashing mumbo jumbo.
*Creation is not a credited theory. It never will be. It's in a book, nothing more. An old book. An old book that claims people can live to over 800 years old. Yea. No. Thanks, but freaking no.*
I'm going to be starting an institute: EBE, Evidence Based Education.
This really makes me sad and angry. How is our nation supposed to advance without science??? Are we going to start research facilities where everyone just prays for new technology? >.>
A few good answers, a few tragic ones and plenty of silly 'both' answers. It's sad that so many people really think that it's only a two claim subject. They say kids should be taught all the options, and then clarify it as evolution and Biblical creation. First off, evolution is the only scientific answer, and should thusly be taught exclusively in science classes. But they also want Biblical creation taught... What about creation stories of the Hindus, ancient Pagans or various tribes? Somehow they are okay with brushing them aside to ignore and claim their faith is the only challenge to evolution. A challenge it fails miserably.
That said, I am actually in favor of religion in schools if many religions are taught in a comparative religion course.
Miss Arizona: "I think it is good to provide our students with both sides of the story and let them choose for themselves..."
BULLSHIT! If it is not science do not teach it (creationism) in science class!
That argument really pisses me off - it allows for all sort of bullshit to be teached in schools.
I find it very strange that creationism has managed to slip into school books in some US states. That would never happen in Denmark - we take care to teach real science and facts.
Well, they say they should teach ALL perspectives. They aren't realizing just how much that encompasses.
I'm assuming they would vote to add a few more years to high school? K-20 ? lol
