"God didn't say 'have my children and give them to someone else for eight hours a day'"


Perhaps not, but I don't think sending children to school is prohibited anywhere in the Bible.  Here's something that is prohibited: " A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent."  Two sons?  Guess you're shit out of luck on the home-schooling front.

I feel bad for these kids. Seriously this is just wrong, in my opinion, but it is within her rights to teach them these incredibly misguided ideals.

What I find the worst part is 'Science can't prove anything'. Really? We'll see what science can't prove if you happen to acquire a serious illness someday.

Simply sickening... Too bad home schooling doesn't have to meet the same requirements or pass the same tests. I feel so bad for these kids, because if they persist in this ignorance their future will be a very scary place.

Personally I think there are 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Child abuse... plain and simple...

I'm a Catholic (yes, I got here because I thought it'd be interesting) (If I cross the line, tell me), and even I think this is partly harmful. Evolution is more than just a theory, even Popes have said that!

In my opinion, what people don't seem to understand is that Christianity, in it's very first beginnings, never was a fundamentalist. Yes, it believes in miracles... but in no way has it been a dogma that the earth was made in "seven days".

Good call Flower.  I watched it anyway and it's just as aggravating as you might think.  It's fine to teach creationism as an alternative to evolution so the kids can see both (I guess it's her right, but I don't agree with it), but to say science doesn't prove anything is flat out ignorant.  I guess expectations shouldn't be all that high for Evagelical Christians though.


On another note - a rat tail?  Really?  Didn't those go outta style in the early 90s?

'Science can't prove anything'


What one decent microscope might do for these kids.....


But I fear their scientific illiteracy will hurt all of us.
