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))).

mmhmm
to ningrim up top, in science when something is a theory it's pretty much fact. a hypothesis is when we are uncertain. there may be multiple hypothesis' to explain a phenomenon but when something is labeled a theory in the scientific community it's like gold star of approval (but scientists, those skeptic assholes, i guess dont want to call anything fact cuz theyre always waiting to be proven wrong... i think?)

to GRRM, i believe in evolution, but... i read a lot of these posts... even from an anthropologist, apparently, and a lot of these people keep saying EVOLUTION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ORIGINS OF LIFE... really?
um, sure natural selection, genetic mutation, drift and flow are actually about change over time in life but excuse me in evolutionary science there IS a HISTORY of LIFE and it DOES begin with HIGHLY ENERGETIC CHEMICAL REACTIONS. ALSO, there is a TREE OF LIFE which talks about how all life came from a common ancestor 4 Billion yrs ago which is also a part of Evolutionary sciences. so um... what are all u people talking about?

This is why some of the smarter bible guys will say, i believe in natural selection but not in evolution. Also, Kaplan 2010 Physiology review videos the lecturer say (best of my memory) "...evolution isn't fact. evolution says the complexity of life came from nothing. you know what is fact though? natural selection, that you have to know...". i mean you may not agree with him GRRM, but the man does have an understanding of science.

Neways, yes it should be taught, cuz although it's only a theory (with facts in it) it's the best one we have so far, by far. If you need spirituality to coincide with science start talking about wave function collapse, there's room for God in there... and probably no ones gonna figure that out for some time to come. Thank you, come again.
