It is wrong for them to teach the expanding universe theory. Perhaps one that is not expanding or contracting would be acceptable, but they are wrong.
Matter is always getting smaller, compressing, (That is part of the "Source" of Gravity. Which would be irresponcible to elaboratte on).
All things are made up of atoms, and subatomic particles eg. matter, therefore the universe itself cannot be expanding if it is getting smaller.
It is like saying a skinny fat man, or a short tall fellow.

I really don't know what to say, can you back any of what you claim up with any facts?
The Universe is expanding, there is no doubt, red shifted quasars and galaxies are all the proof you need. In fact it is accelerating in its expansion.
Matter is not 'getting smaller' matter is matter and it always is matter (unless converted to energy), compression has nothing to do with gravity.
Just because matter is made up of small particles doesn't mean the Universe cannot expand, taking that logic ballons wouldn't blow up and we shouldn't be able to breathe.
Very stange ....
the increased density are impercivable to the life form
What proof is there that red shifted quasars and galaxies are expanding?
Some Scientists maintain that the universe is getting colder, If that is true it must be becoming Denser, (The only material that doesn't shrink as it gets colder is water that actually expands?)

My family has no values... lol. But, Liberals do change words around... like my example of progressive. Now, liberals often want regression, or backwards change. they want things to go backwards, back to bad states of living and less freedom. Now,last time I checked, progressive means to want progress or to bring progress. There are other examples, But I'm too tired ATM to think of them.Thanks for pointing it out - I was in a hurry so I couldnt say all I wanted to.

All the schools around here are moving towards everyone wearing uniforms. The message seems to be "Conform, conform. There is nothing individual about yoursef". Pretty scary.

I go to one of the most progressive High Schools in Australia, and its absolutely fantastic, its free dress, uncommon for Australian schools that are almost exclusively forced to wear uniforms, I did go to a School that had a uniform, but there wasn't a chance in hell I was going to wear black dress shoes when I walked to school from school and did heaps of moving around, its just not practical, needless to say that didn't sit to well with them.
As for Evolution, No one should be taught anything about Religion until their 18th birthday, when they can make up their own mind, so that it is not polluted with archaic rubbish, instead they should be immersed in Philosophy, it would make a wonderful substitute.
Everyone should deny religion, in place of philosophy it would make for a far happier world
