Arrow Right Wing Creationist Home School Curriculum Highly Inaccurate And "Really Dumb"

Not that this is to anyone's surprise,..

A popular curriculum used by home-schooled students has drawn criticism for inaccurate, misleading information and an over-reliance on rote memorization, but those aspects may not be the worst things about it.

A lot of the material that children are exposed to in the Accelerated Christian Education is just astonishingly stupid, according to a former Christian fundamentalist.

Blogger Jonny Scarmanga shared some of the multiple-choice questions he found in some ACE packets used by British home-school students Monday on the blog, Leaving Fundamentalism.

In one question aimed at 9- or 10-year-old fourth-graders, students are given this example: “Children played happily in the water spout.” They are then asked to define a water spout from three examples: “a stream of water,” “two dry ducks” or “playground.”




Creationist home school curriculum isn?t just inaccurate ? it?s really, really dumb | The Raw Story

You do know that this alleged nonsense happened in the UK and not the US.

Don't you?

And now for a bit of perspective:


"The Left says of the Right, “You fools, it is demonstrable that dinosaurs lived one hundred million years ago, I can prove it to you, how can you say the earth was created in 4000BCE?”

But this supposed intransigence on the part of the Religious Right is far less detrimental to the health of the body politic than the Left’s love affair with Marxism, Socialism, Racialism, the Command Economy, all of which have been proven via one hundred years of evidence shows only shortages, despotism and murder."
David Mamet, "The Secret Knowledge"




Pop quiz: How many human beings were killed by the Left during the century of genocide, the 20th century?


Answer found here:

"The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression" by Jean-Louis Panné, Andrzej Paczkowski, Karel Bartosek and Jean-Louis Margolin




Now, really, don't you feel stuuppppppid?

Home schooling is fine.

Creationism does not prepare home students for the larger more inclusive society in which they will live.

Oh my no one is more naïve than a young white girl right out of college. She has been handed more bullshit based on the belief that teacher knows best and she can now save the world.. And Forbes she believes in. Olympus has fallen.

The respect is lacking by the minority for the larger majority's viewpoint.

Believe creationism all you want but don't expect your bosses, employers, and peers to respect you as a professional.

Inaccurate.. considering a vast majority of the world believes in at least a higher power, if not God.. having a religion or a belief is not frowned upon... when being asked why the network went down, you reply 'God did it', THAT is when you will get frowned upon
