    depends... do you ever want to be better than number 23 in the world?

    i think even parochial schools have to meet minimal state standards.

    Parochial schools are not funded by public taxes last I checked, so the school has a choice in who they hire and teach whatever. As Jillian said, I believe all they have to do is meet state standards. However, in public schools, tax dollars are paid for teacher salaries. So for those science teachers who want to teach Adam & Eve instead of actual science, they can always go work for a private catholic school.

    Yes i know :)

    I am poking fun at the other thread.

    Even parochial schools will teach science and not just creationism.

    I include catholic schools as parochial.


    And that is also my point. If teaching something other then what you personally believe in is not within you, work somewhere else.

    I see.

    With the other thread in mind, I have a problem with Creationism being taught in science class because it's not a real science. Modern day Creationism that is being proposed to taught in schools is Christianity. It's why you don't meet many Islamic or Hindu Creationists. :lol:

    I also don't think even if every religion's creation story was given equal time that the science classroom is the place for that.

    I absolutely agree. Religion, in any form, should not be taught in any science class.

    Not that it matters all that much, but Catholics are not Creationists.

    I went to Catholic Schools. Best education money can buy. And, shock! Horror! We learned real science! With experiments and everything!

    Stop being such a fucking moron, Dog.

    When did I bash Catholic Schools? I said for those science teachers who want to teach Adam & Eve they can always work for a private catholic school. I never said in what capacity. Probably better off working as a theology teacher or something.
