Should Evolution be taught in Schools?

Post by storytime7 on 10/8/2010, 10:39 pm

Okay, let me start off by saying that I don't want this thread to turn into a thread where people are insulting other people's beliefs, and the rules clearly state to "respect other users", so no mocking anybody else's beliefs.

I an strongly against this, I am Catholic and find this very offensive. I don't care if it's part of "science", if i'm not comfortable learning it, then I shouldn't have to, but apparently one of the topics we will be learning in my biology class is "evolution" and some of the questions on the regents exams at the end of the year will be about this topic so i'll have to learn about it in school. Okay, seriously? Since when did it become okay to teach "evolution", but they can't teach any religions in school? If they're gonna teach evolution, then they have to teach Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and all the other religions. It always feels like they're trying to convert me whenever i'm in biology cause even when we are learning about cells and stuff, they find a way to bring evolution into the subject. It's getting ridiculous, i'm not gonna change my beliefs and if the school wants me to, then they can all rot in the fiery depths of hell. Angry

What are your thought on this widely debated topic?

My schools didn't teach it to avoid lawsuits. That's all I'm going to say, since my religious beliefs are really changing lately.




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?

Yes, it should. Because the pokemon noobs lately are really fucking up on evolving their pokemon, like evolving Turtwig the first chance they get. Fucking noob.

So yes, to avoid these noobs who suck at pokemon, schools should teach us about evolution and how not to be a noob while trying to evolve our pokemonz. It'd be really nice and heartwarming to have teachers explain to us how to evolvve our Pokemanz.

So yes, good evolving should be taught in school, cuz these noobs suck.


*(...Or is this being a joke going to fly right over people's heads and they'll think I don't know what Storytime means?)

When I had Evolution in Biology last year, it honestly didn't make mefeel too uncomfortable (although I was alot more concentrated on sleeping than on the topic) but I agree with Storytime, that they should have to teach other religions if their going to teach evolution

I was watching The Simpsons "The Monkey Suit" recently and it really got me thinking. I am by no means religious but I don't know if I want Evolution to be taught in schools

Well...it creeps me out with the thought that we may have evolved from monkeys. But I think students should be updated with the latest break throughs in science.

If you choose to believe in evolution, then we technically evolved from fish.

Yeah, there has to be a balance. But Santa Dog has a point too.
