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))).

Re: A Scientific Theory is an explanation of facts into
Well said. I get real tired of hearing the creationists use the "just a theory" line when they don't have a clue what a real theory is, namely an explanatory hypothesis that is supported by and consistent with the known facts. Such well-confirmed theories stand until and unless they are superseded by better ones, or until the theory evolves into a better one through ongoing discovery.

Creationists like to talk pseudo-scientific by calling their own pet dogma "theories," such as "intelligent design," but close examination shows that they're based on non-falsifiable hypotheses, which removes them from the realm of science and into that of religion/philosophy.
