I like your idea, we should do forced abortions on female Christians who refuse to stop teaching Bible stories. Your Taliban style is good because you are fighting the good fight. Burning books is good as long as their bad books. You know if religion poisons we need to eliminate it, or spread it to our enemies, like anthrax. No more religion=No more poison.
It can sometimes be difficult to pick up on sarcasm with the written word but you did an excellent job and there’s no mistaking it.
I wonder why you reacted so viscerally to eccles remarks. Were you having a bad day? Did you happen to pray only to have the the answer be no? What set you off? I mean, man, it’s just over the top.
I can see where eccles remarks about children not being indoctrinated (my word, not his) might be unrealistic but it in no way warrants the response you gave. I mean, come on… “forced abortions”, “Taliban style”. I just don’t see how you get there from “not being taught about god and jesus”.
[quote author=“fletch_F_Fletch”](eccles quote)“They should be introduced to simple science and hepled to understand about the Universe. Then their minds would not be poluted with “bibleshit” and lies. That would be the beginning of the proper education of Americans.”(end quote)
Actually don’t they already do this? The majority of American citizens, and illegal immigrant for that matter, is taught evolution in high school. In fact I would bet my left leg you will not find one course in American public school that teaches creation science, you will get fired for teaching such things.
“creation science” is an oxymoron. There’s nothing scientific about creationism at all. If you really believe it’s science and can subject it to the same scientific rigors evolution answers to, then you might have a point. But that’s not possible is it?
[quote author=“fletch_F_Fletch”] Interesting enough the valedictorian of the school I teach at carries her Bible around wherever she goes, and she is majoring in Biology in college. She says she want to move to Africa and help create methods for ending aids and malaria. Stupid Christian. If she will not change her mind it seems will need to become more militant. After all don’t the ends justify the means?
If current statistics are any measure, then she probably will set aside the security blanket of her good book by the time she finishes college seeing as how the vast majority of biologists don’t believe in a creation myth either.
I have a suggestion Fletch, if it’s so troubling for you to teach in (I assume) a public school, why don’t you quit and find a nice fundamental christian K-12 private school to ply your wares?
Oh wait, maybe they might want a teacher who knows grammar and can spell
