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))).

That so many "well educated" women think that Creationism should be taught in schools, rather than in church amazes me.

That so many think that the alternative to evolution to be taught is the Judeo-Christian myth is appalling.

Personally, I was taught both evolution in science class; and mythology (sans the Judeo-Christian myth) in history and literature. I was taught the basics of several other religions in world culture.

Creationism was taught in church (I grew up Christian), where I think it belongs.

I would not have a problem if the Judeo-Christian version of things were part of the world culture classes; but I *do* have a problem with it being taught as a scientific theory.

I also suggest these "well educated" women go back and *read* the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. A creator is mentioned, but there is no reference to God as the creator.

I took a college course on history and literature where the teacher spent the entire time trying to explain to us why the myths from other religions that we were studying were wrong. Yeah, because I think studying Gilgamesh and ancient Greek myth is going to convert us. *eye roll*
