This crap makes me furious.

I certainly hope the STATE of SOUTH CAROLINA is requiring kids to learn REAL SCIENCE in all schools…and testing for knowledge. What you see below is a ACTUAL 4th Grade Science Quiz from a religious school in SC.
After you’ve reviewed the quiz…I suggest you follow this link to SNOPES where the PARENT of the CHILD fills in the details…and the details are further confirmed by a Creationist Blog. snopes.com: 4th Grade Science Quiz
To me…this is like witholding medical care from your child…for you are crippling them for life. Nevertheless…I support the parents rights AS LONG AS THE KIDS MUST ALSO LEARN AND KNOW the actual state science curriculum and be tested on it as well. Somehow…I doubt that is happening in SC.

[/quote]I see no problem with the test. You said a religious school.

Well, look at that. It’s the reverse of an atheist liberal college test.

Don’t like it? Don’t send your kids there. Seems easy enough to me.


#5

What’s the problem here. It’s just the opposite of how you are. You are constantly ignoring real life experiences of people who were actually present for such experiences and replacing it with what you read on the internet. You were never there and you have still convinced yourself that you know everything about it.

It’s a private school. If you don’t like it, you and your domestic partner need not send your children there.


#6

Look at it this way, would you go into say a Muslim school and tell them they have to change their religion to suit your purposes?


#7

^This


#8

Yep, Commies are big on using the force of the state to force people to raise their children how they require.


#9

I imagine there are billions of people on this earth who do not know or believe in the theory of evolution and they get along just fine.


#10

However, communist homos with no children know what is best for our children.


#11

There’s nothing wrong with this quiz except the title. It’s not a “science” quiz, it is a mythology quiz.

[/quote]Once again you tell us you are not a christian. Obviously you do not believe there is a GOD.

His belief is irrelevant to whether the bible should be taught as science.

Or do you think faith should be taught as something that has scientific backing?

[/quote]The point is this is a religious school so placing his beliefs ahead of theirs does not make a compelling argument. What say if I decide I should change the teaching in a russian school because I do not believe the same. You would be fine with that?


#15

The point is that ‘knowledge’ which is only backed by belief has no place in a science class, I don’t think anyone should take issue with that no matter what they believe.

[/quote]The point is cam wants to impose his beliefs on a religious school. Should I go into a Buddhist school and tell them what to teach?


#17

If the children put in there are put at a disadvantage because they are not taught science at all, most definitely… they can teach both things if they want to but not religion in the place of science.

[/quote]You base your judgement on one little test and make a blanket statement that these children are not taught science. Have you ever been to a Catholic school or religious one for the matter? Science is taught. Tell you what , I should write a letter to the president of Russia and tell them that they should teach America is far better than their country. Because I believe it makes it so


#19

No surprise here. A communist supports the government forcing a PRIVATE school to teach according to the standard of Liberal/Socialists/Communists.

Volk, This is a PRIVATE school. It is NOT funded by the government. If you don’t like it, don’t pay to send your children to it.


#20

I’m not making a blanket statement, I said “if”.

Tell me if you need any help translating that. Here’s the site to use: Send a Letter to the President

Children are not property. Various practices that are motivated by belief, like female genital mutilation, are illegal. I don’t differentiate between mental and physical crippling.
