    People of today do not realize the tool(s) each of us received from God. Some of us are creative with our hands, others have great minds, while others have a strong voice. Yet most of us do not use these tools to better ourselves and society. This is why today we have Doctors who cannot heal, Social Workers who cannot solve the social issues in their communities, and teachers who cannot teach or motivate children to stay in school. We simply did not use the tools God gave us to carve our careers.

    Are you whining with this opener or are you just making a vague statement? Do you expect dialogue over this?

    I have to agree that we have alot of tools and talents we dont use.

    And I dont think those are just there to be used in careers. but to make people around the world better. To lift people up. To make the world a better place.

    stf410 - I see you have met the gang that normally jumps on any post concerning religion. You haven't met them all yet but a goodly portion of them. You ask an interesting question. I can't answer it...

    I expect teachers to teach facts, not their liberal biased pov. Sadly, that's what our public schools have quickly turned into in California, indoctrination centers of the impoverished that can't afford private school or to stay home and home school.

    And even the private schools are under the gun to teach liberal guesses and cheapened wannabe science. Science rocks, but the junk they teach our kids doesn't hold up so they force it on them.

    Need to get back to facts, not fiction, then maybe our kids would listen. I don't blame the teachers (most) it's the liberal curriculum they're told to teach through our liberal government and teachers union backing.

    Why are there so many Christian private schools and no atheist schools?

    Atheists have to force it on those who can't afford better.
