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'msorrywhut?

Yeah uhh while every minute detail we could know about evolution might not be known yet the basics of actualy evolution.

Also yeah anyone who thinks "Evolution" and "Creationism" are two sides of the same story will gain my respect once they include any religion other than the one they belong to into that statement. When a christian says "Well we should teach both evolution and hindu creationism so we can know both sides of the story." That'd be neat even though I'd still disagree that science and religion are the exact same thing.

Does anyone have a red phone to Brahma?

And lastly to answer your question, we aren't still rock throwers because from an evolutionary standpoint that would've been negative for us. Our species evolved into a clever, tool-using species. Eventually, that came to mean that humanity today doesn't really evolve, at least not in the sense that other animals do. All animals evolve in accordance with their surroundings. We've kind of transcended that since we change our surroundings according to our needs.

So yeah, that's a big difference we have from most other species, but it took evolution to get us there. Without a big brain, opposable thumbs and upright walk we'd not get to our massive society-building, and those are all clear physical traits that were needed before we could create advanced culture, art and youtube parodies.
