Not sure if this should be in Education, but I thought there might be objections if I put it in Phil/Rel/Sp.

Just look here for a bit.

This is the kind of crap that's being distributed under the spurious banner of "presenting both sides of the argument."

Those poor kids - being told all those lies and made to bloody parrot them. I'd like to think that if he tried that in the UK, rather than Wackoville, USA, some kids at least would heckle him or refuse to join in.

That is extraordinary and quite disturbing. "Evolution is from the devil" - goodness, those poor brainwashed little children.

God people can be so stupid, its a story when they talk about creation in the bible it is taken by most people now that a day is a way to describe a peiod of time, ie the world was created in seven periods of time.

Scary stuff.

I can see that Nobel prize coming his wayshockgrinbless him

UnquietDad Thu 13-Sep-07 14:17:44

I'm not sure whether to feel pity or sadness for someone who thinks they can win a Nobel prize in science while believing all that.

The scary thing is, this is seen as normal, everyday, godfearing, respectable middle-class niceness in the USA - all these people would have voted for the warmongering chimp, having been told that not to do so was to vote for Satan.

LOL at the woman saying "it's easier to explain to your children" - well OK then hmm

I'm all for religious tolerance, until I hear these lot, when I think, oh just *fuck off*.

And Richard Dawkins gets taken to task for not having "studied" theology, as if he needs to do so in order to dismiss this pile of pants. You don't need to have studied Fairyology, read the Big Book of Fairies and done extensive research into varying wing textures, sparkle intensity and wand length in order to refute the idea of fairies.

Scary...
and have these people actually read Genesis -if it is supposed to be a true record how come there are two contridictory accounts in the first 2 chapters (God creating the animals etc and then man closely followed by God creating man and then the animals)?
It's written as a collection of stories like parables or allegories.
Grrr these people drive me mad!

words fail me. If that ever happens here I'm emigrating.

all secondary schools were sent a free DVD that said it was a free resource for use in science lessons. It was put together by a religious group, and was promotion of creationism.

I have no problems with creationism being taught in RE lessons and a belief system, but I do object to it being pushed as sciences, as it is not.

Blandmum Fri 14-Sep-07 17:09:48

and the day I am expected to teach creationism as a science I will insist that I teach all creation stories, including this one

I so love this site, and want a mug for school!

I love one of the comments written on there..

"If god is real he can at least say it to my face and in person." grin

I remember being glared at once by a scary teacher for telling chn in assembly that Adam and Eve was just a story.

This makes me MAD ....

I'm a Christian - a serious bible believing happy clappy evangelical ... and most of us in the UK also think this is a pile of pants, at least the ones I speak to (or maybe folk are just afraid of me .... grin )

Just because you believe in God doesnt mean you check your scientific brain out at the door - I just happen to believe God invented the science as well!
