Me, I typically would jump at the chance to tell people why religion should be kept out of schools, but... this time, they're teaching themselves a
lesson... and I wouldn't want to step in the way of education. Heh.
Now that it's on it's way through, and to be implemented into the US education system, I will tell you why it's such a bad idea.
When formulating a lesson plan, a teacher/professor will typically only teach children that which they don't already know. Teaching kids what is
already obvious to them, is a waste of time, and good teachers avoid this at all costs.
With that being said... you didn't specify WHICH religion to follow when teaching creationism.
So, the Christian kids, YOUR kids (I address this to Christians), having already been taught about Christianity by YOU and your church, will not be
taught Christianity in schools. As I mentioned, they already know about it, so whats the point in regurgitating?
The teachers and professors will be left no option but to teach your children about religions other than Christianity. They will essentially be backed
into a corner, and will find the only option is to teach Islam, Hindu, or any other religion on the planet OTHER than Christianity.
At first, I tried to warn some of the Creationism proponents that they are making a decision that will harm their religion... but hey, since when did
I ever like religion?
So I've saved it for later... and here it is.
You asked for it.
And I told you so.
You can flame me all you want.
The point is, you will see this happen, and I am not going to do a thing to stop it... in fact, I might just do what I can to ensure Creationism stays
in schools, so you can savor your lesson. At least that way, when it does get revoked... you'll know never to try that again.
