    The Christian teaching of science requires not only a good command of basic subject matter, but also the spiritual perception to discern truth from error in a great variety of contexts. As a prerequisite for this, the Christian teacher of science must be thoroughly grounded in the Word of God. Moreover, he must have firmly implanted in his mind a biblical framework of truth which serves as the touchstone for his decision making. True science will fit that framework; anything that fails to fit the biblical framework must be rejected as erroneous. The present discussion demonstrates the need for a distinctively Christian philosophy of science teaching and surveys the differences between Christian and secular science education.

    Here is a site that lists Christian Colleges and Universities and their degree programs. Check out what's listed under "Science".

    Christian Colleges - Universities and Bible Colleges

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Let me point out that this is where many of the Republican "scientists" come from. Republicans get very angry, worse than a shaken beehive when the PEW research poll is brought up showing that a measly 6% of scientists are Republican.

    Republicans at the USMB gleefully point out (whether true or not) that the right is receiving many more degrees than those on the left. The question becomes, "But what is the quality of that education?"

    A few areas of science not listed as available:

    Evolution
    Evolutionary biology
    evolution of disease
    geology
    Plate tectonics
    Evolution of star systems
    Astronomy

    How one "liberal" University describes a very small part of it's "science" program:

    The theory of evolution provides a coherent explanation for all biological phenomena. All of the Faculty in the EEB Department pursue research interests to a greater or lesser extent connected to evolution. A core group of Faculty address evolutionary questions directly, at very different scales of biological organization, and they all use techniques of molecular biology to answer those questions.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    So if Republicans want to continue to insist that more than 6% of scientists are Republican, then good for them. But let it be known that what makes a "scientist" is generally more than the study of "natural science".

    Is there a single sane person in this country that would want to go to a doctor that didn't believe in evolution?

    KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

    The Onion? Really?

    The Onion is an American news satire organization. It is an entertainment newspaper and a website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news...​
    Derp is in the running for the Stupidest Human Being on the Internet award.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


    Hey, Derp, I'm a conservative Christian -- but I know the Onion isn't real news.

    You think it is. You're an utter moron.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Oh, and don't even try to say you were testing us. You failed. :lol:

    I thought it was funny.

    The problem is you can't tell the difference between Republican policy and satire. Too bad the point escaped you. Noah's flood? People shimmered into being from dirt? The "apple"? Strength in long hair?

    Then you continue on to:

    Trickle down.

    Iraq.

    and so on....

    I live in Chicago. You can get the Onion on any street corner. Not to mention that story is 6 years old. It's been linked on this site a dozen times. Everyone knows it's a joke. Except you, obviously.

    So you DO think it's real news.

    Admit it dean, you thought the story was real. Just like you thought Obama was real.

    Great, thanks. How did Bob Jones get accredited?

    Ask Rdean to link the information for his study that supposedly shows only 6 percent of ALL scientists are Republicans. You will discover that it was asked of one small group of something like 78 scientists and as I recall they were all in the same field.

    Yes, you've posted it before -- and you believed it was real then, too.
