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))).

Uh...
No...it doesn't. You can't take something that was written for one purpose, like the book of Genesis, and take it to mean something else. It was written during the Babylonian exile as a "counter-story" to Babylonian creation myths. It was not written to describe the age of the earth, the origins of life, or anything else that is considered "scientific."

What you just said is equivalent to "The account of science presented in the Odyssey is false." You shouldn't hold works of fiction accountable for wrong answers to questions they aren't even trying to answer.
