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.
The image was publicized in a post to Reddit's r/atheism forum, made by a user who maintained that it was a real quiz given at a private religious school in South Carolina, and that he was shown the quiz by the student's parent and took a picture of it with his iPhone.
...but you can deduce that it was given out by a one-sided...
They will never be able to think with logic or for themselves, the bibles word will rule their lives for the rest of their lives.
Many of them will get Degrees in Bible Science from Christian Universities, meaning they will never work in any real scientific or technical fields.
Many Real World employers will consider their "science educations", un-acceptable and give jobs to people who have been given proper educations.
Mostly, they will become bible group leaders
and "those very annoying people you work with in general manual labour jobs", that everyone hates because they constantly preach to co-workers and try to convert them
and try to convert them or scolding them constantly for being blasphemous...lol
Why not just accept that the bible has inaccuracies (Such as the age of the earth)
The book is a few thousand years old for god's sake, things have been disproved by science!!
To say that a Christian who believes the Bible can't or won't think critically is ridiculous. It's because of Christians thinking critically that many are abandoning the YEC model.

I'd like to think this is just a made up children's Bible coloring book, but I know it's real. Sadly, unintentionally funny, but all too real.
Glad I'm a non believer.
Yes, it is a gag, but I cannot stress enough how un-exaggerated a gag it is. During research (it’s my illustration) I ended up dialing back the satire, there was just no need to embellish (or it was more sad and more pointy that I did not have to) I was struck by the wide array of resources that hewed to the same story (which I guess, they have to) and were willing to refute education and science at every turn. And feed it to their children.

3. It is impossible for a man to fly, because he is heavier than air.
4. It is impossible for a ship made of iron to float, because iron is heavier than water.
5. When the first atomic bomb explodes, it will set off a chain reaction that will destroy the Earth.
6. The sun revolves around the Earth.
7. The stars are fixed in the firmament.
There exists no evidence as of yet to support evolution
