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))).

No. Evolution is not a “concept”. Unlike notions and beliefs it is supported by mountains upon mountains of scientific evidence. And also, depending upon your interpretation of the Bible, “adaptability” may not negate faith but evolution (which encompasses speciation) most certainly does.

People can believe what they like; what I disagree with is bringing those personal beliefs into the classroom where young children are hard-wired to believe everything adults say. Perhaps we should teach them that Green Pixies created all living things?
