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))).

Of course you'd be skeptical that the fossil chain will connect humans to apes in the future when you ignore that it already does.

We don't even need any fossils to know the connection. Genetics is sufficient, fossils are just icing on the cake. In any case, do I need to link you to the sheer number of transitional fossils that we have? (Ignoring the elephant in the room that ALL fossils are transitional, but still.) Human evolution is rather well documented. It helps that it was so recent in geological terms.

"Can animals change into another animal over time?" Absolutely. Look at ring species to see precisely how this can come about. Seriously, look them up.

I mean, we can actually see these sorts of things with our own eyes. The only way you can ignore them and say it "isn't proven," at least by any rational level of proof, is if you refuse to look.
