    The poor guy must be like "OH NOT THIS AGAIN!".

    @Ezri: I know a lot of sane people in the South too, but so many of these kinds of kids. To make matters worse, the Texas school board recently made a decision to revise all text books to be more "conservative". They removed Thomas Jefferson for advocating separation of church and state, among many other travesties.

    @Zeny
    ...Please, please, PLEASE tell me you're kidding. ;__; I heard about the textbook thing but I didn't know it was going to be /that/ bad. There's nothing wrong with making connections between history and religion as long as the "religion" part doesn't overtake the "history" part but cutting stuff out is NOT OKAY.
    Also, this kind of makes me want to be a teacher so I could knock some sense into these kids. It's not that they support creationism, that's pretty much a valid school of thought unless somebody were to prove that God doesn't exist. It's that if they clearly don't even understand the concept of evolution and they can't come up with ONE SOLID REASON as to why they support creationism, somebody's obviously not doing their job.

    The changes can be found here:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/13/education/13texas.html

    As for creationism being a valid school of thought, it certainly is, but it's no where near as refined as the theory of evolution. There's absolutely no proof that creationism happened. But yeah, that teacher wasn't doing his job right. Though, in a town that heavily conservative, I imagine it's either spew what they want to hear or get fired.

    What's worse is that since most states use Texas textbooks as their standard in education, a lot of textbooks in the U.S. are going to be affected. History isn't perfect, but throwing in conservative rubbish doesn't help. ARGH CONSERVATIVES.

    This is why people fail, because they don't adapt and create new ideas. Ideally, the world's political systems should be like the human immune system, constantly learning how to fend off new threats as quickly as possible.

    *hugs Waifu* it's okay, I'm here for you ;~;

    THIS THIS WHOLE THING IS BLASPHEMY!

    I mean I believe the world was created from The Big Bang but perfected by the Gods when they added in humans and animals... but it later progressed thanks to science. I hope that made sense ;~;

    That's another school of thought, where the main belief is that the super natural entity you call "God" triggered the Big Bang, and let science take care of the rest.

    Well, some people believe the Universe was created when Haruhi got bored.

    Personally, I'm like Lei and believe that there might be a sentient cosmic energy that made everything be like it is and made precise calculations stuff to happen; but like nothing can be perfect, some errors might occur sometimes; I like to call these "Nature's bugs".

    But returning to the topic, it kinda saddens me on how people are so closed and conservative. Even though the Bible has some pretty offensive/aggressive/intolerant unripe doo-doo covered banana, it also has some nice and tolerant things in there. I just wish people would focus in the tolerant stuff and not care if others will "go to Hell"; after all, if "God" is omniscient, he must know that trying to interfere/being intolerant and stubborn about those ideas won't, well, convince other people that's the right belief. If he wants to make people believe in him, he'll just make some pretty wicked shuiat that science won't be able to completely explain through theories and there it is.

    Thing is... They want to keep their mind closed instead of opening it and searching for stuff science can't properly explain through any complex theory (there are some stuff that still make scientists go WTF, believe in me) and shove it on the scientists' faces to prove the existence. If I were religious, I'd sure as heck try it instead of "explaining" that men didn't "come from monkeys", or say that "evolution can't happen because we don't grow one part at a time".

    I don't know Aline, that kid at the end seemed to be real proof we evolved from primates! ;D

    No but really I see where you're coming from. I've had people argue with me that fossils are a conspiracy and were planted by the government. At that point I give up and let them swim in their own ignorance.
