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))).

Every nation...
... has his "thing", the one thing that make every atheist of other nations thinks "well, they are really nuts... at least the religious people from my country aren't THIS absurd".

I am from Italy, Catholic by birth, Atheist by choice. Most people outside the Catholic world point at the adoration of relics, parts of bodies, or the believe that Eucharist is the real body of Jesus, is a sign for a more shamanic and nutty religion. I have worked in Israel. There, in public places, elevators work by themselves on Saturday, since the bible says "You will not light fires" and orthodox Jews think it means "You will not turn on any electrical switch".
This is "your thing". A large amount of people thinking there is a debate among evolution theory and creationism. A sensible amount of people believing the earth has 6k years.

All religions are the same, they are fine if you believe in them as symbols, you will seem a nutcase if you will try to take it literal. And you will always think the local nutcase are a bit less strange then others, because you are used to them.

The three main religions are just books of rules from one to three thousands years ago. No one should take any book this seriously.
Ok, this is long enough, I've to read A Feast For Crows for the ritual reading of the afternoon.

Re: Every nation...
I wouldn't just blame the abrahamic religions...I think the rest are pretty much the same.
