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))).

"I teach biology"... "are you asking that I eliminate my Creator from my thinking? Absolutely not."

Never did so little explain so much. Didn't happen to teach any of the Miss USA contestants, did you?

Thank you for coming along so quickly to demonstrate my point.

I was driven to comment by that same emotion experienced by all parents - ie. an evolved instinct to protect our young. The term “evolution” has zero range, only those trying to shoehorn it into their own personal faith system would argue otherwise.

And what, exactly, was your point? Of course people will ask questions of religious biology teachers and, along those lines, what is YOUR definition of evolution and how do you deal with any conflict between your faith and the teaching of evidence-based science? Do you believe in speciation?
