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: I must say...
Yes! Let us argue semantics when we know what the other person means. In any case you may disagree with what I wrote, but not so much with what I mean. Our understanding of evolution will be replaced with a deeper understanding of evolution. I wasn't suggesting that we'd come to the contrary conclusion that at one point we had twice as many species on this planet as we do now and they just hybridized.

And I never suggested that teaching the modern rendering of evolution was bad so I don't know where your "Then nothing is certain and kids should..." remark came from unless being sarcastic is just a favorite past time of yours (which I would understand and sympathize with).
