Ok, so a friend of mine sent this to me from back home. He doesn't know the name of the school, but you can deduce that it was given out by a
one-sided, religious zealot by merely looking at it:
This is just ridiculous! Do administrators, even ones at Christian schools, realize the damage that they are causing to children by teaching them such
blatantly false knowledge? How is this acceptable, academically speaking; and how does this assist in preparing a student for future study? I firmly
believe that ideologies that purport that all matter and existence was created in a week should not be taught in an accredited learning institution,
Christian or not; it is a disservice to the students, the community, and the future of our civilization.
Sure, I can't prove that there is not a creator. Sure, there are flaws in science. But the facts of nature that have been proven observations are
innumerable compared to the alternatives that exist to explain the same things, which primarily only rely on faith of a divine intervention making it
so. My heart goes out to the children whom do not know any better.
Little can be said about the religious institutions that try to use variations of this quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson to maintain their arguments, and
on the surface it does seem contradictory; however, the difference is that observations of aspects of the world around us have been proven, whereas
the words from the numerous "holy books" have not been proven.
