    Modern education systems should require a study of world religions, geology and anthropology. Education is something that ancient myths cannot handle. It's the reason modern society is beginning to withdraw from that line of thinking:

    Statistics on Religion in America Report -- Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life

    This survey finds that the number of people who say they are unaffiliated with any particular faith today (16.1%) is more than double the number who say they were not affiliated with any particular religion as children. Among Americans ages 18-29, one-in-four say they are not currently affiliated with any particular religion.

    All ancient, mythical god worship is horse shit. When youngsters attend an accredited university and take the right courses they immediately realize that. The old "I'm a gonna' rise up from the grave, join a ghost floating on a cloud, fly off to paradise and live forever" rendition is short lived. When the present generation dies off I'd say it's within 50 years of being dead. Then it will assume a similar role to Thor, Athena, Zeus and other ancient mythological gods.

    "God" seems to be sticking around. Religion is utter BS. Religion is for the weak minded in my opinion. I dont completely disregard the whole Creator idea, but I dont believe God. I mean come on? There were many Gods before that one. With pretty much the same 411 on him or her. It was like it was a bunch of Gods rolled into one. Whats the chance of 5 gods (and Im considering jesus as a god in this instance) being born on Dec. 5th? But I ramble..

    Yeah.....the Roman emperor Constantine saved the Christian belief about 350 AD. The faith had all but died on the vine. He picked pagan holiday's for the celebration of Christmas and Easter and where I live, here in Tennessee there are people back in the Appalacian hills who will kill you if you even suggest to them that Dec. 25th isn't the date of Jesus' birth.

    Oh....Jesus is all three, the father the son and the holy fuckin' ghost. Or...as Oral Roberts, Liberty and Bob Jones universities teach..."The Trinity!"

    You wouldn't know education if it bit you on the butt.

    BTW The more I learn the more faithful I become. History, sciences, Languages, all denote that there is a God.

    His hand is in everything. After all the Glory of God is intelligence and we are commanded to learn of all things.

    The US Education System used to be world class, now it's sh*t.

    So as the American Education System degrades, so does our Faith? Is that what yer saying?
