These ill-taught students are going to eventually find their way into the voting booth.


That's unlikely a HUGE portion of the population by and large doesn't vote. If anything their main impetus for voting would be to protect their own freedom of thought.
On the other hand 80% of Turks believe in creationism and last anyone checked that country is still around.

@OldOllie: A democracy's strength relies upon an educated citizenry. That's one of the reasons that Jefferson considered his establishment of the University of Virginia (which I attended for grad school) as one of his greatest achievements, more important than his presidency (which, incidentally, doubled the size of the United States via the Louisiana Purchase).

Or in other words: These ill-taught students are going to eventually find their way into the voting booth.

Okay, I agree this is just superstitious bull$#!+, but can anyone here explain to me how it affects your life if someone else believes it?

Sadly, until we get Republicans completely out of power in States and Federally (or at the Republican "base" to quit having any sway with the party), this BS will continue As others have said, and as is obvious by this link, it's all entirely based in willful ignorance informed by faith in a vengeful God who doesn't care for liberals, gays, reasonable gun safety, blacks, immigrants or science (not necessarily in that order).

@LordJim: I wish every American could read your comment. Supportive, wise, and sobering; I appreciate it. (Zero irony there: I'm moved by what you wrote.)

Yes, I really hope we get our act together.

@Davymid: Wow. I didn't know they had their own name for their special brand of science: "the Young-Earth Creationary view." ~facepaw~

Well, they're certainly turning out young people who will be well equipped to deal with the competitive 21st century.

I've heard the 20th century referred to as the American century. Please, get your science education sorted or we are looking at somebody else's century and for all America's flaws the options are not attractive.

Jesus Christ Squirlz, that link is shocking. Quote from their science curriculum at that school (one of many of its kind):

"Students will examine God’s handiwork in the heavens. Students will also see the perfection of God’s design in the universe, including space, the atmosphere, the lithosphere, and the hydrosphere. Students will proclaim God’s creation through the study of the physical universe to affirm the young-earth creationary view of the earth’s history and to reject uniformitarian/evolutionary models through the study of scientific philosophy."

F*ck me.

Ughh...If people are happy believing this nonsense, then all I say is "bless your heart".

It's the price we pay for freedom of thought and speech.

@TheOrigin: I share your dismay. It *is* brainwashing.

The situation has arisen over here because the U.S. culture is *profoundly* distrustful of centralized government (the anti-gun-control fervor is a reflection of that), so there are no national education standards. Instead, each state gets to determine what constitutes a legitimate education for a child. In states where there is a strong fundamentalist Christian presence (notably, the southeastern states), Christian academies are given a lot of leeway to teach nonsense like this.

It's child abuse, in my opinion, and should be stopped.

Shouldn't this be outlawed?
This is not education. This is mere brainwashing.

HERE'S a link to one of the dozens of South Carolina Christian academies. Academies of this type are pretty much everywhere in the southeastern USA.

At first I was just going to go "meh, another proof that some people suck" and pass, but I found that really can't, I really, really can't. Freedom of belief is one thing, actively teaching things that are certifiable WRONG is something completely different. Few things make me angry, but this bloody well does.

Of course it's fake, the writing adheres too close to the line.

I'm okay with believing in any religion you want, but when you just flat deny science with this earth-is-flat mentality you look really, really stupid.

Public school or not, that doesn't make this right in ANY way.

19. What are you going to do when someone asks you a though provoking question?

Recite bullpoo, because that's all I've been taught to do.

Also: I've got to believe this isn't from a public school but from one of those "Christian Academies."
