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 was 12 and at the Grand Canyon on a nature hike. The ranger asked how old the earth was, and a kid probably around 13 said "6000 years"

I laughed and called him stupid and my mom took me aside and said "some people think that god created the world 6k yrs ago". I told her that belief was stupid. She, a devout catholic said: "I know it is, but you don't call them stupid to their face"

I f I ever meet one of these people, my reply is going to be something along the lines of "So your God is kind of an asshole then?"


If the account in Genesis is true, then God needs to have His engineering license pulled.  The whole world went to schitt because Adam and Eve ate from the wrong tree?  If I built an airplane that fell apart on the failure of a single rivet, the FAA would never let it fly, yet God in His infinite wisdom builds the whole world with a glaring single point of failure?

Or maybe God did it on purpose -- set Adam and Eve up.  Suppose I built a church in soaring Gothic architecture, but with explosives on the load-bearing elements triggered by a rope hanging from a ceiling.  A sign reading DO NOT PULL THIS ROPE OR YOU WILL SURELY DIE is unlikely to save any lives or excuse me.  Y'all know as well as I that sooner or later some wise guy is going to give that rope a good solid yank.

Let's see...assuming a standard mile of 5280 feet and a standard cubit of 18 inches...
 

17 miles = 1077120 inches
100 ft = 1200 inches

12002 = 1440000 square inches

1077120 * 1200 = 1292544000 square inches

1292544000 / 18 = 71808000 square cubits

1440000 / 18 = 80000 square cubits

1292544000 *  80000  = 103,403,520,000,000 cubic cubits.

This isn't about science fact -- this is about culture.

Day to day, how often does it really factor into your thinking whether or not dinosaurs existed and the true age of the earth?  Does it really matter if your ophthalmologist or mechanic or pc technician has a thorough understanding of modern scientific theory about the fossil record?

If this were some tribe out in the amazon describing their creation myth we would collectively clap our hands together and fret on how to preserve a dying culture.   But because these people look like us we have to shove cosmology and evolutionary theory down their throats.

We think its derp.  They take comfort and find a source of salvation.   As long as creationists act well professionally and socially then why does it really matter?

It makes me scared of what places like this would teach for history.

I remember talking to someone once, a few years ago, who had what I could only call a hideously skewed version of the history of the Christian church.  I don't mean theology, I mean actual documented history.

He apparently had been taught that Catholicism was a completely unrelated religion to "Christianity", and was actually a devil-worshipping cult that had arisen in the medeival era to oppress "Christianity" in it's original form (which upon further discussion apparently meant Evangelical Protestantism).

This arose when I was at work, and while chatting with somebody, the discussion turned to theology.  At the time I was taking a Comparative Theology class at a public university, and found the subject fascinating.  I knew my co-worker was a somewhat devout Christian.  I mentioned Catholicism as a form of Christianity, which he took grave offense to and got very angry at the mention of.

He apparently thought modern Evangelical Protestant Christianity is the unaltered, original form of Christianity, practiced EXACTLY like it was from just after the crucifixion to the present day, but had been oppressed by Catholicism (which he considered to be some kind of ancient demon-worshipping cult that rose to power in the middle ages due to demon-w) from the medieval era until "Christians" fled to the Americas to be free from Catholic oppression and be able to found a Christian nation like God intended.

He had no idea that Christianity was the state religion of the Roman Empire, of the Great Schism, of the Protestant Reformation.  He had no idea of motives for the colonization of the Americas (and the American Revolution) beyond "Christians" wanting to be free of Catholic oppression so they could found a "Christian Nation".

I quickly realized that any setting straight of the record was NOT going to happen.  Just denying what he was saying was enough to make him angry almost to the point of workplace violence.  He "knew" it as absolute fact that this was true and no history books were going to prove him wrong.

In retrospect, it makes me wonder if he got his history education from a private "school" like this.

18 is precious.  I've got an idea: When these sorts of people tell you about how great Jesus Christ is, just ask them "Were you there?"

LordJiro: AverageAmericanGuy: AdrienVeidt: 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 can only assume you're trolling at this point. Otherwise, you fail at anything remotely resembling science so hard that I'm surprised your skull doesn't implode.


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

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.

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.

Fark Me To Tears: 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?


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.

Captain Dan: 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.


I f I ever meet one of these people, my reply is going to be something along the lines of "So your God is kind of an asshole then?"

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)
