I am just going to post the link without commentary because I fear the absolute venom that would come out of my mouth this time.

After that, everything is speculation.

Even after saying that I'm long on God, higher power, whatever floats your boat.

And I'm long on Science.  The extent of the universe far exceeds our capacity to understand it. 

Einstien's work was an attempt as I think he put it, "To understand the mind of God"

As for the schools that teach that way in your link, well...

It maybe should not be encouraged but should be tolerated. Those who diligently seek truth will find it or at least new conclusions. Real Science is all about seeking the truth and being willing to discard previous conclusions. That's why Universities were created, eh?

awallejr, I wonder if they thought that one through enough to think about it being used against them.

I agree blesto, as long as you start with "In the beginning God created", as your bedrock, then the hows and whens don't really matter.

If the school is actually teaching that as science, it is doing a great dis-service to the students and to Christianity in general, but in the long run, it doesn't really matter.

One day we will "see and know all things", and I expect that we will all be surprised at how wrong we were about most things.

Thanks for the post Chris, it just goes to show the limits of people to see that they don't really need to make God and His actions fit into their box.

Good luck to all in this "skyrocket" market, don't linger too long or you might get singed by the afterburner.

I have calmed down a bit so I'll add a couple more cents here. I am also in agreement that first "God created" and man hasn't come close to figuring it out after that. 

I do disagree with you after that though Blesto. A certain percentage of those kids will never figure it out. They will believe what they were taught in the 4th grade as fact and make decisions that effect their lives based on what they think the facts are.  This is just another example of a base of power manipulating facts to keep that power. Those 4th graders suffer because of it.

It's probably one of the biggest reasons why I hate government controlled education, but you can see from this example that religious controlled education can be just as corrupt. Children suffer either way.

That 4th grader was probably proud that they scored 100% on their science test. The abuse of authority taking advantage of that fact is probably about as evil as you can get. 

If you are wondering why so many Americans can go through at least 12 years of education and still be stupid, you have your answer. It's not just sad, it's an economic disadvantage.
