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))).

This is flat out wrong, on many levels. First, there is no contradiction between science and religion, or more specifically, science and Christianity. They both speak to two different areas.

Secondly, your ignorance is showing when you claim that the Bible "lays out a pretty specific history of how life started." You make the assumption that 1) the original authors/storytellers would have assumed that this was in fact a history and meant for it to be understood in such a way and 2)you assume that a literal interpretation of Genesis has been the norm and is the norm, when it isn't. Some thought it was more literal, others thought that the creation story in Genesis represented a long span of time, notably Augustine and Origen, two highly influential theologians. The point that evolution contradicts Christianity, though, is highly false.
