Have you seen this?
I can't believe this is being taught in any school, public, private or other
I will try again. It is a quiz from a christian school in SC that has questions like:
True/False: Dinosaurs lived with people (true)
Exactly. I went to a Christian University and was taught evolution as scientific fact. There was no trouble reconciling faith with scientific fact, both can co-exist. The comments in the article are even more disturbing.
Edit: here is the link to the article:
Don't even get me started! People complain about scientists being anti-religion but this is exactly why religion has no place in a science class. This is also why scientists are generally against anything remote religious being taught in science class. This makes me so angry! I will just stop now and move on before I feel the need to kick someone in the groin.
ETA: I am usually very accepting of people having religious beliefs (to each his own) but this just doesn't belong in science class.
There was a thread on Parenting the other day where someone said she worked at a museum and would get people yelling at her for talking about the dinosaurs like they really existed.

They should go to the Creation Museum then.
I don't see what everyone is up and arms about. Dinosaurs DID live at the same time as people. I saw it on television. Which makes it a fact.
Or is someone going to try and tell me the caveman DIDN'T use wooly mammoths as dishwasher?
crystaladult:Unfortunately, Snopes confirmed that quiz to be true. The father of the daughter posted the second page. It's a private school.

Word. I was raised as a Christian (although I no longer identify as such) and it was never an issue to try and reconcile the theories of evolution and creationism. This worksheet and the thought process it represents are just completely contrary to reason. How can you believe that an omnipotent being created the universe and couldn't create adaptable beings? I mean, seriously. I just don't get it.
