(Addicting Info)   Remember the 4th grade science test where the right answer is that god made dinosaurs on the 6th day? Turns out it was legit and the school administrator is shocked at the public's reaction. Awwww   (addictinginfo.org) divider line 326

fta It seems that since the last presidential election, atheists have grown more confident about having something of a license to go after Christians.

Thanks, Obama

Aw, c'mon folks. This is a school in South Carolina. Most of these kids are going to grow up to work in the Chinese-owned refrigerator factory on the other side of town. How accurate of an education do you need for that?

Most of us had parents who taught us to accept their religious beliefs as undeniable fact. But, do we have a right or obligation to ourselves to question a few things? (new window)

This test is a clear example of how the American education is going down the proverbial tubes. We really need to reassess the education system in this country because this sort of thing cannot occur. The title of the test is Dinosaurs: Genesis and the Gospel and yet there is a question from the Book of Job which is neither Genesis nor a Gospel. Disgusting.

I hadn't even heard of Young Earth creationism until I was 18.  My first encounter was through a YE creationist, who made some comment about Satan planting fossils to deceive us.  Because I didn't know that creationism was an actual thing, I laughed at his joke.

It stunned me when I was told that it wasn't a joke.  I was sure that I had just met the dumbest person in the entire world.  When I later learned that multiple people believe this, I felt disoriented, like the world as I knew and loved it was gone forever, the way that Baby Boomers must have felt when JFK died.

So, if God is perfect and so is His Creation, why would He choose to kill them off? Did He not tell Noah to make the ark big enough, or not allow enough time? Or were they the misceginated offspring of angels farking lizards, or whatever?

And I still don't understand why faith is valuable to Him.

The ark was big enough for the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs were only the size of sheep.

When they landed on Mt. Ararat, the problem was that the soaked ground had lost much of the vegetation that would have kept these reptiles alive. As a result, most of the dinosaur species went extinct soon after the Flood water subsided.

We still have some left, such as the gila monster, Komodo dragon, and crocodiles. But the vast majority of dinosaurs died in the Flood aftermath.

I always thought there were people who believed nutty things, but it took me a long time to understand that there were mechanisms that keep them in power over others. It's always hard to accept the evidence of your senses when they're telling you the inmates are running the asylum. See: 2002-2005

Boeing just built its newest plant in SC (although it's on the other side of the state from this school).

I don't feel safe flying anymore if the only thing holding the plane up is duck tape and prayers.
 
2013-05-04 06:30:10 AM  
Yes, the test is stupid and just the sort of thing you expect out of Christians but the way the article downplays how people have been reacting toward the school as just "criticism" is highly misleading as well. The internet hate machine is in full effect and they need to knock it off. You are doing nobody any favors by giving the Christians actual cause to claim they are being persecuted irregardless of what you think of their stupid test.

They actually make a sort of tape they use on airplane wings that's stronger than rivets.  I don't know if they use it for something as large as commercial airliners though.

I keep saying "united federal standards for education", but you keep saying "but gadian! That will be the federal government telling us what we can teach our children in our schools.  We have the right to educate our children to whatever standards the dominant culture in our communities hold!"

The next thing you know, Jesus comes riding by on a dinosaur and tramples over the poor fourth graders.

Great.  Thanks.  I'm sure the dominant cultures in your communities appreciate your support.

/"states rights" and "local standards of education" fanatics squick me the hell out.

Upon reading some of your posts in the previous thread on the topic, yes, you are trolling. Farking Poe's Law.
