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 thing I find most interesting is the name. You can't see it, but it is written in cursive. From the looks of it, exceptional penmanship at that.
This is why I do not trust or particularly like atheists and most secularists. For starters, they remind me of the converts after Spain liberated
Iberia from the muslims. You see, these converts where among the most ruthless hunters of Jew's and muslims in Spain during the Spanish Inquisition(a
religious/ideological Inquisition carried about by a government).
Given that this is a conspiracy website, I could say that I think the whole thing is made up to suite someones agenda, but let's ignore that angle and
go back to the whole penmanship thing. Most public schools are dropping(or thinking about dropping) cursive writing.
Heck, most kids and a good chunks of teens these day's can't even read, let alone write in cursive. So to have such good cursive writing makes me
wonder what this particular students writing is like in general(grammar, word usage, sentence structure).
Lastly, how atheists and secularists remind me of zealot converts, science isn't a collection of facts, it is a process of discovery. You know, the
thing called the "Scientific Method"? That is Science. It is totally and wholly ignorant to claim a bunch of facts that may be thrown out the window
tomorrow, is "Science".
That is all atheists and secularists ever do, they use facts derived from academic researchers(who are hopefully using the Scientific Method) as a
cudgel against those who believe or think differently then them.
It truly makes me wonder if secularism is a blessing in disguise for Christianity though; as it seems the Historically worst elements of Christianity
have left for a belief system more fitting them, and enabling them to engage in such horrible actions. I wonder if there was ever a clamp down on
atheism how many would convert to islam? I digress as that is off topic and irrelevant to the general discussion taking place.
What type of school would you rather have your kids in? A school that teaches your kids socially some~ accepted facts with a major de-emphasis on
critical thinking, or a school that teaches your children some unusual facts but gives their students the methodology of critical thinking?
edit on 24-4-2013 by korathin because: ~ added the word "some" as it seems only "facts" that can be used to bash Christianity are used or
