Pure faith is a bit of a stretch. There is a reason it is the science books, ones that are not thousands of years old written by people who weren't there for the stuff they wrote about.
Oh and go quote, guess we should just get rid of school then because of Lenin.
Idaho Republicans are pushing a bill that would allow teachers to cite the Bible as a reference book in science classes.
A Democratic senator questioned why the bill was necessary, because teachers are already permitted to highlight biblical allusions in history and literature, but Nuxoll said a statute was needed to highlight the Bible’s importance.

Science 'Fiction' is ALREADY being taught...
The reason why is obvious:
“Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.” ~ Joseph Stalin
"I begin with the young." ~ Adolf Hitler
"He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." ~ Adolf Hitler

Why would they want to teach fiction to students?
Because some are nutty like that?? and for others it's a system of control, the less knowledgeable the populous the easier it is to exert control

I grew up in a household of thinking republicans and can remember when the discourse was deeper and there was less idiotic braying and bible thumping... the GOP has really, truly lost the plot and I can't see how anyone able to tie their shoes can count themselves among their ranks...
it's deeply, completely embarrassing... and no, this isn't hyperbolic ranting... it's the plain truth.
We would actually be better off with two (or more) viable parties ... where are the adults? Is the pay for public service too low?
