Should Math Be Taught in Schools?



((Sad to say, this parody is hardly exaggerated at all. A few of the answers are almost verbatim to the actual answers of the Miss USA contestants to "Should Evolution Be Taught in Schools." Go watch that video on YouTube and see for yourself)).

(((There are days I think I am living in the world of Kornbluth's "Marching Morons." Just look at reality TV, and remember the hit show in his story)))

(((I am vastly pleased that the eventual Miss USA winner, and GAME OF THRONES fan, does "believe in evolution." And presuambly in math as well))).

In everyday use, a theory is a guess or a hunch. When scientists use the word theory, they mean it's a well-substantiated, well-supported, well-documented explanation for our observations. The terminology is confusing, but yes, evolution is a fact. There was no competing hypothesis that better fitted the observed reality.

Whining that scientists "ridicule" people into "silence" is you basically admitting you can't prove your theory.

Theory is not fact. Theory is accepted truth. Big difference. If it were fact it would be the "Law of Evolution".
