Teaching Creationism In School..

Recommended Posts

I pose the following: Why do we need to discuss origins in school? If you want to talk about how cells work, for example, does is mater where it came from?

 

Come to think of it I don't remember eighter theory being presented in science class.

What? if you thought it was dumb to argue in the first place why did u even post?

 

I beleive, everyone should believe in whatever the hell they won't as long as it doesn't directly affect me.

there are two major differences between evolution and creationism

 

evo. -- it can be proven, traced, tested, makes logical sense..

there is

gradualism and punctuated equilibrium..

 

Creationism is based on faith and something non apriori.. or not self evident.. you cant test religious beliefs, you cant test a theory of things poofing out of noting..

Proof of evolution? Traced? Tested?

 

Dont count on it....

 

Java Man was the skull of a gibbon

Nebraska Man was the tooth of a pig and

the Pitdown Man was a low down sham

They built that man form an orangutang

Ramapithics wasn't complete he's a fragment of jaw and a couple of teeth

additional skeletons show us today that he isn't our relative- only an ape

Australapithicus alias Lucy the fossil of this was just vague and confusing

the wonderful knee bone they're proud to possess

was 200 feet deeper- a mile from the rest

Neanderthal Man was prob'ly deficient

in Vitamin D of it might've been rickets

but he had religion and musical instruments

fire and tools and from you he's no different

 

Yes I understand that this is not quite what they teach as evolution anymore, at least here, and they call the Peppered moth proof, well...it's still a moth, just a different color.

 

Big bang? Whatever happened to the laws of thermodynamics?

 

 

Teaching evolution, meh, whatever, that's not gonna change, but it is not fact, it's a theory (and if it were a cheese, it would be Swiss cheese, stinky and filled with holes), and the creationism that they aim to teach is basically just mentioning that there could have been a "higher power" it's actually quite vague.

I did a report on evolution vs. creationism. The laws of thermodynamics are pretty interesting and really explain alot. I'm kinda rusty on it now... I'll have to read back up on it.

I dont see what the big deal is. The theory of evolution takes what, two days to cover and review? Creationism, if given the same amount of time, would hardly create a problem. The teachers arent telling the kids what to believe, they are just discussing published theories. And as long as they arent saying one is absolute truth, or getting into creationism at such a level as to cover any one belief system, I dont have a problem with it...
